New Computer

Tuesday 16 July 2013

My new computer arrived from Dell this afternoon and after plugging in the multiple ‘accessories’ I have it up and running.  It’s completely different!  Of course, it has Windows 8 on it so that’s all new, but everything I had set up before is now altered.  I quite like that – it’s like out with the old and in with the new.

My internet let me down as usual and refused to work whilst the computer was setting itself up.  I don’t know if that will cause problems, but it seems smooth enough.  I haven’t found out how to access my e-mails yet, but I’m working on it.  In removing the old computer I’ve completely rearranged my desk which now looks great – clear, clean and uncluttered.  Unfortunately the rest of the room looks like a bomb went off and I don’t know what we’re having for tea tonight as the freezer’s buried in bits and their cables, but I’m sure I’ll get there eventually.

If you never see another post on this blog you’ll know I couldn’t master it, but nowadays I like a bit of a challenge.

In Harmony?

Monday 15 July 2013

Yesterday my sister and I decided to visit Secret World for a day of their Healing Weekend.  This event is in its fifth year and although it isn’t very far from either of us, we’ve never been.  This year, partly due to the glorious weather, we thought it was about time so after milking in the morning I went to her house and we walked from there.  It was …. interesting.  We had our chakras aligned in a pyramid tent, sat through a demonstration of mediumship (fortunately nobody came through for us), had reflexology (which I love) and I had my aura massaged with star essences sent by higher spiritual beings from the stars.  Other than feeling quite relaxed and sleeping well last night – probably as a result of the reflexology – I feel exactly the same even though I’m now apparently protected from harm by a squirt of something or other in a pretty blue bottle.

I’ve finally given up struggling with my old computer (well, it must be at least SIX years old) and ordered a new one.  I thought long and hard about it, and for a while I thought I might just update this one to a new operating system, but Windows 8 would cost somewhere in the region of £100 so I might as well get a new one.  My current one is running Vista and frequently stops for a little break during which time I go for a cup of tea or something, plus it occasionally smells hot.  Gordon thinks it’s probably just dust at the back and it may well be, but I’ve had lots of use from it.  I may reformat it anyway just to wipe everything off but the newest operating system I have is Vista so that will go back on.  I’m not sure what I’m going to do with it then – maybe freecycle it if I can’t find a friend who’d like it.

We’re up bright and early this morning.  Gordon’s not sleeping particularly well in this heat and once he’s awake that usually wakes me.  It’s another beautiful morning.  Even though I don’t do well in this heat it’s better than constant rain.
