Tecchie trauma

After two days of torrential rain we're shaking our dripping heads and looking foward to breaking up for Easter. Eight-thirty temperatures have been below double digits, meaning that Mathilda, for several weeks now joyously un-lit, has been in service once more - glad there's still wood in the woodshed to light up willy-nilly also in the various hearths and woodburners when we're feeling damp and shivery.

Excuse absence from blogosphere - computer sent to tecchies for minor repairs, returned home after a whole week, pronounced dead-on-arrival. Ho-hum.

Oh no... can the computer be saved?

Hurray for Matilda... back to minus temps here after a few days of mild weather...

Missed your blog. The weather here is the same as yours, heavy rain and 4c forecast for all this week with a northerly wind. Still, glad we aren't in Scotland with their blizzards.

Jealous of your Mathilda. Couldn't restart our central fireplace, the water pressure in the CH is so low thanks to builders whipping radiators off here and there and then plonking them back on again that there is no point. But the little insert in the living room is working full time. Sky went green yesterday and rain came down so fast that next door ended up with 3cm of floods in the house.

I'm joining you in the tech panic too. The fan is going on my 'puter, it got so hot it turned itself off yesterday so it is al madly backing up in this house and wondering how I can buy a laptop here that doesn't have a funny keyboard and if the preinstalled Windows has a language option.

Feels like puters have become disposable items, second laptop in two years where it has been cheaper to replace than repair.

I always feel really isolated when my computer is not working...you don't really realise how much you use it till it goes kaput!!

Hope you manage to resolve your techy problems.

I know the feeling, had to replace our ancient (6yrs old)computer at Christmas.

By the way I am still seeing double on your blog!

I need a new laptop so I don't have to share mine with my husband. Is that horrible?

Welcome to SITS. We're happy to have you.

Hi Louise, I can't believe it, after it seemed like spring had finally sprung, it's now back to freezing and raining and just hideous weather... Anyway, your photos and words are always an inspiration and I have therefore given you a blog award, please "pop in and collect" it at my blog. Love from (cold & rainy) London C x
