Hello and apologies

Hi Everyone

Just a very quick post to apologise if I haven't got round to leaving you a comment recently but Wednesday night my computer wouldn't shut down properly, so I had to press the on/off button to close it and then Thursday it just wouldn't start up. A friend has been looking at it for me and he thinks it might just be the powerpack so we are awaiting a new one from Dell, but until it is sorted I cannot get to my draft posts on windows writer or to any of my photos, favourites/bookmarked web sites etc, etc. I am on the laptop, but I hadn't loaded anything on it and I haven't got all my favourites sorted so it will take me a while to find everything I need. Please bear with me, I will hopefully get round to everyone soon.

Just to let you know as well, we had the most fabulous weekend at the Isle of Wight Festival except yesterday when it rained and rained and rained, and coupled with a driving wind, in the end it became unbearable so we caught an early ferry home. We only missed the last few acts but even so it was a bit disappointing. However Friday night we saw Kings of Leon who were tremendous and just all I hoped they would be, for me they were the highlight of the weekend. I usually find one group I hadn't heard of that I like and this year there were two - Hurts and Two Door Cinema Club. My other favourites were - The Courteeners, Seasick Steve, Stornaway and Jeff Beck.

I hope to be back up and running with my blogs soon, but will be late with my next Gingersnap Creations one as that is sitting on the other computer - I so wish I had loaded it into draft on Blogger - but I didn't!!!!!

Take care and have a good week.

luv and hugs {brenda} xoxox

Hope you manage to get it sorted soon Brenda. I know what this is like as I lost my laptop a few months back and it was such a pain.
Glad to hear you had a good time at the IOW festival despite the rain.
Hugs, Fliss xx

Hope you get your PC sorted soon - we miss you here in blogland!

Glad to hear you enjoyed the IoW Festival - I should have liked to see the Kings of Leon too and Seasick Steve (wonder what led him to that particular moniker!)

Happy Tuesday (too late really to wish you a Happy Monday!)

Oh Brenda, Computer problems are always a pain. I have issues like that at times and have to take my battery out and put it back in a few times to get it working again. Hope you get things resolved soon. Sounds like you had a good time at the festival. Have a good day. Angela
