A bit of strange Easter weekend

Goodmorning everybody!

You sometimes wonder why suddenly little things, or a bit bigger things, happen to you one after another. Is that's Murphy's law or what?????????
Anyway, I was all prepared and ready to have a quiet an for all a creative Easter weekend, but it turned out to be different. Somewhere Saturday afternoon, my mouse suddenly didn;t do it's job. Oh well, I thought, just have to change the batteries and it will be fine again. But no, it seemed to have died, at least the part that makes connection between the mouse and computer(I have a wireless one). Gosh, why this happens just aat a time, you don;t have time anymore to buy another one? I just gave up and didn;t do anything on the computer anymore. So I tried Sunday morning again, nope. Still no moves from the mouse. I resigned and stayed away from it all day. In the afternoon we went to the fair, but that was a disappointment, It was so small, not cosy at all the only nice thing was that we run into my brother in law, Rob and his son. I told Rob about the trouble, and he said to me I always could call him if I needed help. So we went home again, had a nice fondue and evening. Monday morning I tried again, and wheeeeeeeee, also the screen stayed black!
Oh no, not again I thought. Already had visions about me and Rob going to a store, to buy a new computer. But I first called Rob, and told him about the trouble. Already one thing he managed to do for me by phone, the screen worked again! Pfffffffff. Then he said he was going out anyway and that he would look for a new mouse for me. In the early afternoon he called me and said he found one, also wireless amd even with a key board to it! And you know for how much???? Only 4 Euro!!!!! So he came to us right away, he did some magic on the computer, we connected the mouse and voila! All worked again. Oh my, was I happy with him again. It;s such a sweetheart. And then he also managed to get the hifi all working(Jan already got almost all connected and working, only the tuner didn't give a sound on the radio, weird). Rob is quit handy in radio and such, and he fixed the problem. Seemed to be a disconnected little wire inside. And now that works all too. So right away I played around again a bit on the computer, and realized how we are kind of dependable on that thing! I almost showed already some kick off behaviour, LOL!
So touch wood, cross fingers and let's hope this machine will do its job for a loooooooong time!

Today it should be the best day of the week, with sunshine and a temperature about 16/17 Celsius, so real spring weather. I think I better do some small shopping today, taking advantage of the weather.  Tomorrow I have other things to do.
You know that a few weeks ago I had some tests in hospital( and I must say I am feeling much, much better already again) but the doctor there wanted me to have an appointment also with the lung specialist. Now I know they are not in perfect condition but this scared me a little bit. The doctor was so vague with his explanation that I only know he saw on a picture that the lunhs were stretched out a bit, as he said. But he still wanted me to have that appointment. And that's tomorrow morning. I am no a negative thinker, I try not to, so probably the specialist will give me some advice and may be I will have to do another test or so, but let's hope his talk to me will not contain some other things. It's always a bit scary, to go to a doctor, not knowing why exactly. I can put things like that rather easy out of my mind, simply don;t think too much about it, but when the day comes near, I get a bit nervous, may be for nothing, but it;s the uncertainty that always is the worst.  Okay, I spoke it out, and let's be happy again and tell some more uplifting news.
Minky, of all the beaytiful blogs has started another one, oh my, this lady is a really busy one!
The link to it is http://thestarchildrencyberhome.blogspot.com/, and if you visit it you will see, among other things, also a lot of lovely layouts of children, all loving fairies, and the layouts made with the beautiful gifts Minky is posting on all the blogs. It's really a treat to the eye, to see the layouts of those kids, from all kind of places.

Without knowing Minky was busy with this new site, I have , I think, a nice freebie for you, all fairy like! Funny hey, how this comes together? It's a serie of 10 bragbook pages I made, and I think it makes a sweet little album. The download is spread into several parts, I will give you each day a part with 2 pages.

Also soon the Magickal Scraps forum will be out of the air a bit, because of the hacking done. If it will all work out, Snowy will put up a new one with a new layout, but then it will be difficult for you to get the daily downloads for April. So I will post the links too. May be I will not have a preview all the time, but at least you can download them. Snowy and Edna also will post the links on their blogs. It is all a bit massy, some days are still missing(not yet uploaded) so we have to switch around a bit, but I hope at the end all days will be there. I will start tomorrow with the links, okay?
Now I owe you still the preview and link for the bragbook pages, "Fairytales".
I hope you all have a fantastic day and enjoy the "fairytale pages".

Kyra, these are beautiful!!!!!!! What a lovely book these will make!!

I will take your advice and do a few carefully selected spells. I have already dug out your computer spell.

I know there are some missing days to the April DD, so I will check with you and Snowy to see which ones will be put up on which days.

As for your doctor appointment, I agree, stay calm, and hope for the best. I wish all good news for you.

Have a great day my friend, hugs, Edna.
