Wisteria - Glicine - Blogging Break
Last weekend we went away to Umbria for the weekend to celebrate our Ruby Wedding Anniversary. We visited a number of the beautiful hill towns en route and spent a couple of days in Assisi. The plan was to this week write a post or maybe even two, about our trip and then for the end of the month produce one showing how the garden has been performing during April.
However, what do they say about the best laid plans? Since our return home I have been having computer problems, resulting in a complete failure that meant it went away to be repaired. I was told it would probably require a new hard drive, but no the computer engineer told us he had managed to sort it without replacing. It worked for about half a day, then started misbehaving exactly as before. It went back to him, quickly he sorted it, but no he didn't as after working again for a few hours yesterday it is now doing the same again today. My husband has managed to reset it yet again and I am frantically trying to post before it crashes yet again. I have already had a disaster trying to edit a post on my Book Review Blog that needed updating via my ipad and lost the entire post! Does anyone else use an ipad and blogger, any tips?
Even though I have managed to get online this afternoon, looking at the display and formatting of this blog it looks a complete mess with photos and words all over the place. I have no idea if you are all seeing it this way as well or is it just me?
Anyway to cut a long story short it looks like I shall be taking a forced blogging break for awhile well these problems are sorted out. If you are on Facebook please keep in touch via my pages as so far I can still post updates there with the ipad and keep in touch with you all.
I may be away some time as we also have a few busy weeks ahead of us in real life, with Birthday celebrations and friends visiting to look forward to.
I will be back as soon as possible and will in the meantime still be reading your blogs, just maybe not commenting as much as normal.
If this is not resolved we may consider changing computers, as this one is already considered slow and out of date by the engineers, at just over three years old! We are thinking of maybe changing to a Mac next time as we already have an ipad and an iphone. Do any of you have thoughts or advice about this? I have never used a Mac so am very unsure especially as I am technicalliy incompetent.
I am leaving you with some photos of this years Wisteria - Glicine.
See you all again soon with hopefully a properly functioning computer and lots of news to share with you.
