UKS folk are...

...the most wonderful people in the world.

It never ceases to amaze me how thoughtful all the lovely folk over on the craft site UKScrappers are. Friends I have made through this medium have so kindly offered to rescue my pics from the gallery cull - you are all so truly wonderful.

DH managed to get the PC to work today but thinks the Mother-board is probably on the way out...oh the joys of the technology age - how we have come to rely on these boxes springing to life at the touch of a button and how we panic when things don't work as we expect.

So for the time being, it is still just occasional visits when I get a moment at work................

I'm still here...


But my PC is dead again **sob boohoo**.

Despite a new hard drive before Christmas things have gone wonk again and it is getting sooooooooooooooooooooooo frustrating. Oh if only I had some spare cash to go and get a completely new PC but that is just wishful thinking and there are other things on the list of "must save for" that are far more important.

So yet again...I apologise for not dropping by and for not updating on here.

What is even worse for me is that I've just seen that they intend to cull the gallery over on UKS - considering I lost all my pics when the PC died before Christmas I am now panicing that I'll lose even more due to the cull cos I have no way of downloading or saving these pics.

Will someone wave a wand and tell me that it has just been an awful nightmare and that when I wake up everything will be okay - PLEASE!!!!!!!!!!!!

...lucky me!

Despite the PC still not working the way I want it to, I am still trying to visit my favourite blogs where possible. This is not being achieved in all cases and I apologise now to my lovely bloggy friends who have dropped by but I've not returned the visit...I can assure you it is not from want of trying.

Paula & Eleni, I am trying to keep up with you via my 'watch' list on the dashboard and I promise to drop by when I get into work next week - I think it must be something to do with the format of our blogs because I can actually comment from my work PC whereas it normally prevents me from doing so on most blogs.

You are probably wondering why this post is titled "Lucky, lucky me" when I am still having these problems...well...I can access the Pinnacle Crafts blog, which I did a few moments ago - what a lovely surprise was waiting for me.

Every 1st of the month Andy picks someone from the blog followers to win a lovely load of stash. This month - IT WAS ME!!!!!! What a lovely way to start 2010 - thank you Andy and all the Pinnacle's crew.

I can't wait to collect my new goodies so that I can have a play.

Happy New Year everyone.................................
