I am officially down in the dumps.
No, dear readers, I've not been reduced to scouring our local dump for bits of tat - even I might draw the bargain hunting line at that (mind you.........).
The thing is that I'm just not a happy bunny at the moment *sad face*.
I wasn't going to post about this as really I'd prefer this blog to be a bit of light-hearted fun, but I would appreciate some sage advice and some kind words from you, dear readers. Our computer hard drive is destroyed and Mr J and P and I are so rubbish at backing anything up that we've lost a lot. And when I say " a lot " I mean ALL our photos from 2008 to now. The most annoying thing is that our external hard drive that we had bought an age ago to back-up our computer hard drive is completely bloody empty. Nothing on it at all! Zilch. Nada. Nowt. Blurgh!
Last week when I realised the enormity of it all, I could hardly sleep a wink that night as I kept remembering all the photos from all our trips that we haven't got anymore. Aaaagh! *sob*.
The man in the computer shop said he could do nothing for us but I've kept the old hard disk drive because one day scientists may discover a miracle cure for hard disk drive disease. Here's hoping......
So since then, I've been over-compensating for our loss, and annoying all and sundry by taking too many photos.
Oh dear, I really must get a grip. It's not as if someone has died or is seriously ill but I do feel bereft. I know we have our memories but what with my poor addled brain, my memory is a diminishing resource *sniff*.
So that's it, dear readers, I'm through with technology at the moment. I'll be back when I'm feeling a little stronger *very sad face*. After all, I've got a lot to report on: jumble sale finds, a tea towel frenzy, a post on ridiculous obsessions - all of which are paling a little into insignificance at the minute, as I'm sure you'll understand. TTFN. xx
