I thought I´d drop in here to tell you all that I am still here. I am not finished with my essay and I am not stitching and I am not enjoying myself.
Working on this essay has been a struggle. I had almost finished last wednesday and was planning on using the wednesday evening to finish everything off and print the essay and hand it in on thursday. But someone else had made other plans because when I started my laptop (mind you we bought this new as a joint Christmas present for me and Runar last Christmas) it wouldn´t give me anything else but black screen. So, I called in my husband as he is a computer geek and has been able to save quite a few lost files over the years. Well, he tried to do a cpr on the laptop but without any results. So, everything I had worked on was lost and I was back on square one with my essay. I can tell you I wasn´t very happy on wednesday evening. I´ve been working on my essay non stop since then and am happy to tell you all that I have almost finished. I am going to bed shortly but what I have got left is just some cosmetic things to finish off and I will print out the essay tomorrow evening and am planning to hand it in first thing monday morning. Phew – I can´t wait until I have it out of my hands. We took the laptop to the shop to have a repairman look at it and he contacted us last friday and told us that the hard disk had crashed and we shouldn´t be very optimystic that any files could be solved.
Well, this whole ordeal does teach me to keep a backup on my portable disk or in another computer. I had thought of saving a backup several times while I was working but something always got in the way. LOL
I can laugh about this now but I couldn´t on wednesday. Can´t wait for monday to come and to have the essay out of my hands. Then I can start planning for my Stitch and Stash weekend away – my well earnt holiday that starts on thursday morning. 🙂 I´ll tell you all about my plans for the weekend later this week.
