The best laid plans and all that!

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!

  1. How annoying about your computer, glad you're sorted now. If ever you need computer advice, fixing, laptops to buy etc, highly recommend Jerome's I.T
    In Manby, he can save and sort out most problems on pc.
