I've been unintentionally a little quiet over the last week or so as my laptop decided that it was time to literally come apart at the seams.
I had just messaged Eldest to ask him what version this particular laptop was (there is no insignia apart from two large initials) and as I was waiting for his reply, the screen slowly slipped backwards and fell apart....... which, considering it was a second hand, university surviving, well used machine - it had served it's time.
So, now I have a new smaller version (perfect for laps, sitting on the work-desk, going in the van) but it does mean learning to 'drive' a whole new layout.....
I do have stories to share, anecdotes to tell and photos to show however, until my new laptop and I are familiar and bond with each other - they will have to wait.
Autumn is certainly enjoying centre stage at the moment, colours have changed from summer shades to softer tones. I am trying to apreciate them - as yes, they are beautiful, but I find them melancholic .... signifying the end of the year. Ok ok so 2020 has been a year on its own however, wishing it away wont help the situation as I suspect that we will still be living with the new normal for a long time yet.
Something I am still enjoying - slow-sew. I keep adding more stitches to my jeans' leg, it is satisfying seeing folk noticing the new patterning as it forms. There are other wips being created but they are still under wraps - won't share until they have been gifted to the folk they are being made for.
Any hoo - things to do, places to be so I will stop waffling here, with apologies for a bit of a meandering directionless post, I needed to practice with my new laptop and to try and get to grips with the new blogger layout - not keen I have to say. I am unable to set the photos where I want them and it seems clunky and old-fashioned; and I keep losing the entire post and have to re-open it and start again - not good.
Have a good Tuesday xxxx
ps. those last three photos are the cats 'helping' in the greenhouse over the weekend - they took turns in keeping my jacket from 'floating off the seat' and Pepper does insist on sliding around on the top and looking through the glass whilst I was sowing seeds.
