Sometimes, we propose….but computers think differently.

by on January 1, 2010

For a few weeks now, we’ve been plagued with computer woes. Finally, after numerous repairs and re-installations, it died on us. Literally. But that was fine, we still had have a desktop, whose former residence was the study….upstairs.

Now, it sits in the living room, next to the kitchen and all was going so well, till this evening when I tried to load my photos from the New Year’s dive at Scheveningen beach (as promised).

In minus degreesWhat did I see? ‘Communication error’. Meaning it doesn’t recognise my camera and so photos cannot be downloaded!

We're finished with our soup

For the last few hours (after watching Bridget Jones Diary, and having my eyes lightly awash with sentiment and romance), I’ve sat down and tried to figure this out – to no avail!

So, please let me tempt you with some photos from last year and a promise that normal programming will resume as soon as the problem is fixed.

Hmmm, have a great start to your New Year….., like I am with mine :-).

On a great note, thanks to Sarah of Maison Cupcake for letting me know, I’m taking part in a 10-week challenge, hosted by Recipe girl. My plan is to

  • Walk @ least 3 time a week
  • Cook/have a vegetarian meal once a week
  • Cook/have soup once a week
  • I should probably add get my kids to eat more beans….last week we had 2 super successful meals (I made a bean turkey and bacon chili with beans, which they loved with pasta and with rice, though I had to mash some of the beans up).

Love and peace this decade…[wpurp-searchable-recipe]Sometimes, we propose….but computers think differently. – – – [/wpurp-searchable-recipe]
