Here in the 'Ella-Rose Miniatures' household we have had a run of bad luck this year, a lot of big things breaking down on us & we've had to replace, the boiler, the car, the bath, the toilet, etc, etc. I could go on & on...Last weekend was no exception, hearing a loud bang/popping noise, I went to investigate only to find that my computer had 'popped it's clogs'!! Gutting!! A very, very nice man came along to have a look at it to see if it could be revived, but sadly no! The powerpack had blown & 'frazzled' the motherboard AND hard drive, nothing could be retrieved, everything that was on the hard drive is now lost forever. 6 years of miniatures photos, gone. 6 years of Christmas, Birthday, days out photos, all gone!! Until I can afford a new computer I am borrowing an old one of my parents & it's taken a little bit of getting used to, but I will get there. Everything that was on my favourites list has been lost & I have spent the best part of two days trying to build up my favourites list again, just hard to remember everything that was on there. I have now learnt my lesson, I should always ALWAYS have a back-up copy of my photos. Thankfully my accounts were up to date, printed off & safely tucked away in a binder. But I am gutted about the photos. Anyway, I will be glad to see the back of this year I think & will look forward to 2011 with optimisism & hope!! Will be back before Christmas with pics of the latest minis I've been making.
Have a fantastic weekend!! Hugs, Kerry .x.
