No sooner do I try and get back into the habit of blogging, my laptop decides to give up the ghost!!
It is a seriously ill laptop unfortunately and keeps crashing when I try to reboot and I get some nasty error messages. As I know next to nothing about the inner workings of my laptop and it is out of warranty now as I have had it for about fifteen months I have to take it to somebody that knows more than me!!
That's only half the story too....tomorrow I am off to foreign parts (Cornwall!!) and I still have to finish an essay so I NEED my laptop to be in working order. I really was quite panicked last night until I remembered that pen and paper would do in a pinch until I can type the essay up.
Anyway, it turns out that there is a computer engineer that works from home in Penzance and that home just happens to be in the road where my B&B is - fortuitous eh? What was even more pleasant was that when we phoned him to see if he could see my ailing laptop he said that he'd come to the B&B and pick up the laptop - sounds like good service to me. So, I am really hoping that he can breath life into my beloved laptop and ensure that I don't fail this course at the same time!! ;-)
