BAD IDEA

20130604-104906 AM.jpg

Very sorry for the lack of post’s over the last week but I really have been a bit busy with grandchildren, finishing the web-site and dealing with a few problems. I had trouble connecting the blog to the website but I have received an email today so I will crack on with that tonight and hopefully it can go live. I think the combination of a new laptop and Windows 8 and it being a few years since I have made a web-site that it has been very stressful and hard at times. If it all goes well tonight at least I will feel very proud of myself.

I have to share with you a phone call I had last night from one of my friends, she has two children, girl 14 and boy 10 they have an iPhone and iPad. The girl read on Twitter that you can make your battery last a lot, lot longer if you put it in the microwave, maybe some people would take the battery out and try it, not a good idea but anyway, the girl put the iPhone and iPad in the microwave and zapped them!!!!! Boy crying, girl grounded. Do the children of today believe everything they read on social media sites? This could be every worrying and I think there has to be more parental control over what and where they are reading and looking at the Internet. This is becoming so much harder to do now as they have internet on their phones so are not under our control as much. Once we got over the shock of what she had done we did have a bit of a chuckle and I think that will be one of the things that stays remembered for ever!

I am off for a pampering session later and hair cut so hopefully will feel full of beans after that and will crack on with my list of jobs.

Have a good day x

LIVE FROM WINDOWS 8

Not really sure how I have done this but I am writing this on Windows Live Writer and hopefully will get put onto blog, not sure how or if it will look the same.  I do not know where the day has gone but I do know I have not completed a lot at all today.  Still have problems with ITunes, I am going to ask an expert, when I find one.

At least the rain has given the strawberry plants a good soaking and the new seeds I planted, lets hope for some sun now to make them grow.  I did very well last year with them and have more this year so I am hopefully optimistic.

I am looking forward to tomorrow as I am going to a Creative Writing group, not really sure what to expect or how it will go but will tell you all about it.  I have new pad, pen and folder, always have to have new pad, any excuse really to buy a new one as you can get so many pretty ones now. 

I will put picture of Peaches and then press post and we will see what happens!  lol

BUSY MONDAY

20130408-115925 PM.jpg

Another lovely day in Kent, amazing how it makes you feel so much better. I have been busy today as sorted some plants in the pots so all strawberry plants are out, carrots have been planted and kale…not sure what that will be like as never tried growing that before. I need to get some potatoes, beetroot and onions in at the weekend and do all the flower pots in front of the windows. I have been collecting pictures, ornaments, lights and candle holders so it should look lovely by Sunday night….that’s the plan. My aim is to create a sitting area that will look nice all year round, I really do not like it looking so bare in the winter.

This evening I have been struggling with the new laptop and Windows 8, I attempted to load the printer as it is HP the same as laptop but no, they are not compatible so it now looks like I am going to have to buy a new printer! Will this never end, I have never known so many problems after buying a new laptop I wish I had just bought a cheap one now like I did before as I never had any trouble with it….apart from going wrong lol

I did manage to load all my pictures from the spare hard drive and took a lot of my camera so at least that went ok and I have them all, it was lovely looking back at when the children were little. Photos bring back so many memories, I ended up looking at loads of them and that is why I am so late writing this post, I nearly forgot about you all.

I am still struggling with the ITunes, I will have another go tomorrow at that as think I will have to google it to see what I am doing wrong. My wifi appears to be very slow tonight for some reason, if that goes wrong they may have to carry me out in a white coat as I will go mad lol

I was very surprised about the social media sites as MSN, FaceBook, Skype all appear to be linked together. Not sure about Twitter as have not got to grips with that yet, so many things to re-learn not easy for an old brain that’s very temperamental!

I also have a digital photo frame that I need to set up but have been putting it off as it all looks a bit complicated, if I can master this Windows 8 then anything is possible. Lol

Off to bed to read the book, night x

GOOD FRIDAY

Where did the day go, all I can say is that windows 8 is very different but not hard to get to know. It has taken me most of the day but I have put all my stuff on it and changed all the colours and now it feels like mine.

One of my granddaughters face timed me this afternoon ( she does quiet often ) to tell me that they had been out and she had got six pots of taster paints to paint her Barbie house and some tiles for one of the room’s. My son in law has built another level on it for her as she needed another bedroom, the house is bigger than her! We have a very happy girl though and the Barbie’s think it is great. I was also told that there is a Barbie who is a writer and that has been put on her birthday list.

I had fish for dinner, got to keep the tradition going, afraid it was not fresh though. Hopefully it has renewed a few brain cells, well, they say it makes you brainy.

Hope you all had a Good Friday.
