So, today there was nothing planned. One of those rare commitment free days where I could do exactly what I wanted. I planned a day of tidying, sorting and ironing - getting the house in order. Of course I also planned some sewing projects but my aim was to feel on top of everything by the end of the day.
So, over breakfast , I turned my computer on - to check the news you understand - and nothing happened. Although the computer came on, there was no screen. No matter what I did, nothing would work. It wasn't a huge surprise- I will admit - the computer is nearly 10 years old and the screen had been flickering the last couple of days. I had had the forethought to back the computer up on an external hard drive , so all is not lost, but it's the sheer inconvenience!
So, off I went to buy a new computer. I must have had the techiest, geekiest woman in the shop - but I came away with a computer purchased and it will be ready for collection on Tuesday - all booted and suited!
That took much of the morning but, nevertheless, the house has been sorted and the lawn mowed. Sewing wise I have not been able to do everything planned but I did, drum roll please, finish the UFO - Lynette Anderson's bag from her workshop last year. I have also traced the embroidery for another Lynette Anderson pattern - a scissor case that Wendy spotted. I can start the embroidery tonight.
So, today has not quite worked out as planned but I have rolled with the punches and have still ended up feeling on top of things so the objective was achieved! More ways to skin a cat as they say!
