I will take miracles of any sort right now. Thanks to my 2 sons helping via phone, I managed to make sure everything was backed up and safe, and then also managed to restore things. This was a major improvement on the last computer disaster. I think it was the automatic Windows update yesterday which caused the whole thing to roll over and expire. Updates are not meant to do these sort of things, are they? I ran a full system scan and there were no problems, and then I downloaded the Trend Micro free scanner and that showed no problems either. So hopefully, we are good to go.
I hate the blue screen of doom. With a passion. I start hyperventilating.
Jean popped in for coffee earlier, which was lovely. I think I managed to talk nonstop, which must mean I need to get out more and do stuff. You asked re the cold, Vee - well, this is the wrong sort of cold! In the Alps, it was -12C and lower, and that is the cold frosty chill which shrinks the trousers around your legs and numbs you. This cold is English cold, with a touch of dampness and much too warm. Well. I know what I mean. It was apparently -7 or so last night here, but I was in bed asleep, snug as a bug.
And, the crockpot is bubbling, I am warm, Glynis is popping over soon, and all is well with the world. See? Plenty to be happy about!
