Hello my friends, nice to be back blogging again. Sorry for the delay in posting, life gets in the way you know how it is! Never really thought I would use the expression "keep calm and carry on" but this last week or so it has made total sense to me.
My computer died on the 1st of July :0( so after a few very tense moments (okay more than a few!) my lovely daughter kindly offered to lend me her laptop, well she knew about it when she got home from school and I was on it! I'm still on it 12 days later (poor daughter) and I'm managing fine. My lovely hubby sorted me out and showed me the ropes etc and as long as I have internet access I can still run my business. Trouble is all of my emails/pictures/files/accounts... everything....are still stuck on the hard drive of my old computer. I do pay monthly for tech support who said they could fix the computer but didn't say (until I asked) that they would automatically wipe the hard drive of all the information before even attempting a fix and I would get a blank computer back. They said I should have backed everything up, which is done on the computer but no use if you can't switch it on to retrieve it! Needless to say I declined their kind offer to wipe my computer!
Lesson learnt, I will buy another external hard drive to back everything onto so if the computer goes bang again I still have access to all my files. £40/£50 for an additional hard drive is a small price to pay for piece of mind. Luckily I have given my computer to a lovely chap who is fixing it as we speak and doesn't use a "sledge hammer to crack a nut" approach...unlike the tech support!
I'm still smiling,
Hope all is well with you all and...sorry to moan
Thanks for listening, would love to hear from you!
Hugs, Charlotte xx
