Oh I couldn't stay away for long, but this is a fleeting visit.
I have just done a quick fly around cyberspace and seen that Amanda had a baby girl and took a glorious photo! And Jane went to Cambridge for a literary weekend (!) and took glorious photographs of red berries.
And I? I am weeping with frustration. I am the proud new owner of a Canon Powershot A520 digital camera. And a computer that at a mere five years of age cannot support the software necessary to even LOOK at the photos that I am CERTAIN are positively glorious. If only they could escape from the tiny little screen of the camera onto the wonderful big screen of my iMac that is not ancient but only five years old.
I interrogated my local computer whiz who informs me that I cannot purchase the upgrade operating system as it won't work. He steered me towards a shiny new computer. And then to a small but perfectly formed laptop. Sadly, the purchase of either of these is a loooong way off.
It did not occur to me that the camera wouldn't go with the computer. Am I naive or stupid or what? Never in a million years did it occur to me to ask. (My digital movie camera works just fine).
On a different note, my bloggy site meter (somewhere down there on the right hand side) informs me I have a reader in Slough (England). I am now living in mild terror that one of my husband's family members reads my blog.
(Note: I only have one husband. Just so you know. That sentence might be misleading).
And on another note, thank you to everyone who left such kind comments recently. My life is still crazy and I have far too much to do and worry about and as you can see I continue to procrastinate. But Son No. 3 is ok. And I still have no work but that's fine cos I don't have the time to go to work right now. And the wedding was beautiful. (And one day the photos to prove it will be set free and I can show you us all gussied up for the occasion.)
