This might be fun!!

On Monday I had a disasterous day. In the morning my laptop caught a virus and while scanning with AVG Kelly sent me a text. I had to go downstairs to get my mobile, and when I came back the laptop had turned itself off. When I turned it back on, it had completley lost explorer and all my peripherals had gone. I could neither back up or load new software, so couldnt even do a complete restore of windows. It is now with Wayne, patiently waiting for him to have time to mend it (fingers crossed).
Luckily I have at least hooked the wii up to the net so I can manage to get some limited use online. Game consoles are amazing!

Then at lunch time half of my tooth fell out!!! Which meant yesterday it was a trip to the dentist. I havent been for about 3 years but when I explained why he was very understanding. He said that apart from the £500 for a new crown my teeth and gums are fine (unless anything comes back on the x-rays.

Life with no computer is a real pain. To start with I cant scrap as I cant print out any of my 'new' photos (all on discs or pc and needing the printer) and neither can I clean up my older photos, or do any of the 101 hybrid scrappy things I normally do using the computer.

I cant read my emails, as the wii will let me onto hotmail but not open anything on the page.

I cant find out anything. I have lost count of the things I think of durring the day to go discover more about, only to realise I cant now. Its too much hassle hooking up to the wii (having waited for the telly to be free), plugging in a key board, trying to find pages using a wii remote.

So, no photos to share this time round, and lets hope for a speedy recovery for my little lappy. :(

Oh no! Is it still not fixed?

If you don't have it back by tomorrow you can come and borrow Dilbert if you like.
