It's already good to be able to read my mail and do some blogreading and then write a short post here.
But I am just progressing very slowly at the computer, have still to install some programs and such, and have to learn how windows 7 is working, although it's not so much different from the vista.
But Jan has windows 8 on his laptop and that is completely different. It all comes down to practice and such, but at the moment I cannot say that I like the way of working with it.
But as I said, it needs a bit of time and when knowing how to get around in windows 8 probably after some weeks or so you ask yourself: "why did I had trouble getting around in it?"LOL
Now the only thing I want to buy is an external harddisk, so that I can do backups and also have more room for scrapbook stash and things I want to keep. I just have to discipline myself in making every now and then a bbackup, if only from files that change a lot.
Not spending as much time at the computer as usual, there is time to do some other stuff, of course and so I do. Most of the time I am working on a kintting project, cannot be too specific about it in case Heidi will take a look at my blog. But when it is ready I will make aphoto.
Yesterday I went to heidi's home to take out the doggies(she phoned me the day before to ask if I had time).
As Séverine still has school holiday, they go out on some daytrips but cannot always take the dogs with them.
Oh my, they were so happy to see me and they really needed their walk to do some urgent business!
Sunday will be a little bit of special day, cause then we will be married for 7 years already!
I think I will cook us a tasty meal to kind of celebrate it. How quick time passes, it looks to me if we had our wedding day about 3 or 4 years ago.
Then Mondau Jan has his interview with the Health Security council and hopefully there will be good news, like getting a disability payment, cause at the moment he really isn;t able to do any work. Struggling still(which always will stay) with his back but also with his belly and all that kind of thing, he still is under treatment and adding his health problems to his age, I hope they will be nice to him.
Weather here is still not to really cheer about, temperatures are too low, on and off we have rainshowers and a little bit of sunshine, guess we are paying back the good weather we had in June and July.
But who knows, it could be the sign of real good autumn weather, Have to do some shopping today, but must really choose the moment that it will stay dry for a while.
Although there is happening enough around here, not all is really worthwhile talking about, so I think I will end my post now.
Wishing you all a terrific weekend and thanks for your support comments!!!
