When things get you down..Go clean your kitchen!! ;-)

This morning, I woke in a bad mood ;-)
(I don't often have bad moods!)
My laptop gave up the ghost yesterday, the one on which I blog the most...and a laptop which I so loved.
Thankfully, my data was saved but the graphics card and screen have had it and therefore I have spent the day attempting to get to grips with a Mac....
I eventually became so frustrated that I cleaned and tidied the kitchen instead!;-)

And then took some photos...of things that are making me happy right now!

Not to be beaten,I returned to the Mac, learning to download the photos...but I found that I could not move them around, before publishing...any advice would be so welcome (as I am now back on my pc doing that).

I am such a busy lady, as you can see...and I can be doing without the grief!!




I suppose the moral of all this is.... that when things get you down...go clean your kitchen!! ;-)

Hi Sal,

You need to export each photo before you can send it to Flickr or Blogger or email etc. You do this via the File tab. Sorry if you knew this already...
Must have been bad to get you cleaning the kitchen?!

Actually! There is nothing wrong with her laptop
I have taken the fuse out
Don't tell her but it saves me doing all the housework whilst she is eternally blogging LOL

MelMel said...

LOL...just seen the msg from your OH....

Are you using the safari web browser? I find it won't select the photos so you can't move them, it's probably because safari isn't fully compatible with blogger. Try using firefox instead, I find that works perfectly. Hope that helps! :-)

And what a beautiful kitchen it is too! Especially with all your Christmas bits. Lol at the comment from DH.

Hi sal
Your kitchen is so lovely. I would love to be able to fit a big table in mine too. Our table is in the lounge / dining area and it would free up so much space if I could just have the room to pop a table in the kitchen. You are very lucky x

It's a beautiful kitchen! so sorry to hear about the graphics card. Can you get a new card or has the laptop died? :-( x

Amy said...

Love your kitchen. It seems very large too! Mine, I'm afraid, is quite small. In my next lifetime I am going to have a big kitchen...and a maid, too!

Such a lovely kitchen Sal!

You make me laugh though as one of the things I do when I'm very cross is clean the kitchen (I have to be very, very cross though!) ;-)

Lovely kitchen - I spotted my Goodhousekeeping Cookery book there! I've had mine 35 years or so!

You have a very beautiful kitchen with lots of lovely christmassy things.

Got to admit, I'm having a little trouble with "good will to all" at this precise time, but I'm sure the moment will pass ... ;0)

WOW! how could you possibly have a bad day when you have a cheerful and lovely place to go to--right in your own home! It's so colorful and cute! Your decorations are so adorable too! Nice job!

Oh my gosh! I love your nice big kitchen. Mine could fit in the corner of yours!
I wish I could help you with your comp problems. My computer is getting old and my son wants me to buy a Mac but I am scared that I won't know what to do with it!
