Grrr ... Computers!!

Evening!

Our laptop is offically dead.  It's gone to be repaired, luckily we knew it was on it's way out, so everything has been backed up.  So now I am using our antique old laptop, which is only just coping with me typing this post.  So you'll have to bear with me for random spaces and spelling.

It's not going to be back with us until at least the 20th January - which feels like a very long time away. But at least once it's fixed we won't have to keep the screen at a certain angle to keep the picture on, listen to the noise of the fan trying to take off and have  a full set of keys on the keyboard.  It should have gone into be repaired ages ago - but it was almost useable so we've not bothered.

So remember to back up your computers, it's one of those things we know we should do but never get round to!

Anyway here's my latest card:


The image is a bugaboo freebie from a while back.

Darling card and thank you for sharing with us at Catch the Bug this week. Yes, I too learned the hard way about not backing up. After receiving a new hard-drive for my IMac I bought a backup driver that backs up every 5 minutes...love it and feel a little more protected.
