Had another computer panic last night. I asked Manda if she could try and find some good nature sites that may have some time lapse tadpole to frog videos on them. As she works at the school she knows quite a few good educational sites. She found a really nice BBC Nature website and left it open for me to look at after she's gone. IT FROZE !!!!! For almost 3 hours the screen just sat there it didn't matter how may keys I tapped...nothing...I couldn't even get send or receive emails...the whole thing had seized up. FINALLY I managed to turn off the computer and ...HUGE SIGH OF RELIEF.....when I turned it back on again it was OK.....PHEW!!!!
I'm so glad it's working again.......it's my little lifeline to the outside world.......and it meant that last night I could do some online Tesco shopping ........(running low on coffee and toilet rolls...can't cope without either!)....and also..GREAT STUFF THIS......it meant I could have a look at the RSS computery Netvibes thingy........(I know nothing about computers so that's the best technical terms I can use)...that Talj has sorted out for me. It is so COOL! Now instead of going into everyones blogs to see if they've posted anything new I just look at my Netvibes page and it tells me which ones have new posts! Think of all the extra time I'll have now to do HOUSEWORK GARDENING!
Mick's had quite a sleepy day as I expected with the new patch but has continued to eat well and taken some liquid. His bottom is not looking red anymore and I reckon I made the right decision by leaving him in bed.

This is for Auds ...due to my typing error in her comment box.......weekend became WINKend.....she is now collecting "winks"....both real and cyber. Hope you like this one Auds.
