Good morning peeps,
I have been tearing my hair out with frustration with computer issues and have spent the last few days trying to sort them out. Bizarrely my computer was saying my in built disc drive was missing & I needed to upload a new Internet security & antivirus programme as mine expired but it wouldn't read the disc due to the RW having gone missing!!!!! I tried installing the software through an external disc drive so I could come online but it was having none of it so I have been trying to track back & find out if any updates may have affected it so I've been uninstalling & reinstalling updates & just had a bright idea of trying Microsofts MR Fix It as I've used it before & it's brilliant & would you believe it sorted out in about 2 minutes flat so thanks to Mr Fix It I'm good to go again, why oh why didn't I think of trying that first, I wonder if he can fix backs & shoulders too lol.
It's worth remembering that one peeps, it's free to use & will definitely be the first place I try when things go wrong in future.

Today is my baby boys 23rd birthday, aww happy birthday Gareth, he's working 8am-8.30pm today poor babby. I must pop out and buy him a cake as hubby was going to pick one up but him and Jodie have gone off for the day on a big motorbike run to Wales called Hoggin' The Bridge, it's in aid of charity & a couple of thousand Harley's from around the country & various other motorbikes are expected to take part. Jodie just rang to say they've arrived & have gone to buy a hot chocolate but is worried about how they will find hubby's bike again as there are so many parked up.
Last night they were in a procession of 66 Harley bikes which opened Taunton Carnival which they really enjoyed so they've had a busy weekend out & about on the bike.
As I've the day to myself I am going to be inking up a new Tilda or two, after I've fed the dragons of course, crickets & tweezers here I come lol.
Thanks for stopping by
