Thank you Willow I am honoured to receive it
I am going to pass it on to Janie of From Under the Maple
Janie as most of you know is my precious daughter
I think she does brilliantly to manage an interesting blog as well as hold down a full time and high flying career as well as being Mum to darling Oliver who was 2 last weekend
She is unable to post at the moment as their computer 'died' when she returned from holiday with lots of photos of Cornwall to post on. She will be back as soon as it is possible.
I mentioned on a recent post that we were having a Baptism for a new Christian in our House Church. The venue was a play pool in the garden next door. I have her full permission to post a couple of pictures of the baptism.
Afterwards we moved to another home across the street to have a barbecue
It was a wonderful day in all
We bought him a traditional wooden train set
I am managing to work on my computer to a point, but there are still things that need fixing.
During the 2 re-builds my printer driver seems to have disappeared
and some of my graphics stuff
I have been amazed to realise just how much I had on my computer that is not now there
I am having to gradually download much software as needed
The 'professionals' backed up my documents and everything in them including photos
but they did not back up my Outlook Express, nor any of my settings. I did therefore lose about
120 E-mail addresses and lots of information stored in folders there.
In future I will not store anything in Outlook Express that is important to me.
To think that all this came about because I attempted to install a
new wireless keyboard and mouse to replace my existing one
I don't even have a wireless keyboard installed at all now
and am using the bog standard one that came from Dell in the first place
Aren't computers wonderful!
We are off on holiday this coming Saturday
We are going to the Yorkshire Dales for a week
and basing ourselves in a Mews Cottage in Harrogate
There will eventually be lots of photos as we will be visiting
castles, country houses, gardens, caves, beautiful rolling hills
and the Spa town of Harrogate
We will then spend a night with friends in Ripon before returning home
I hope you all have a great week
I'll be back soon but in the meantime I leave you with a great tea-time treat
made by my own fair hands
