I've been really busy relearning computer skills. About a week ago my ancient laptop gave up the ghost. It had already been in for repair a few months ago and I decided to stop throwing money at it. So I went out and bought a new one. Things have moved on a lot in cyberland and I think I have just about got my head around Windows 8.1, Microsoft SkyDrive etc etc. It hasn't been easy!!!!! This was partly because my computer skills are a bit rusty and also because there are definite problems with the latest software and operating systems. Internet forums are full of people having the same difficulties I had. It has been a steep learning curve.
I resented the amount of knitting time I had to devote to setting up my new laptop. But I'm up and running again. Just being able to edit a photo and add it to my blog has been a major achievement. Woo hoo!
Today I posted off a parcel of sewn, knitted and crocheted items which will be divided between Greenfields Africa and Operation Orphan. There are 8 hats, 2 scarves, 1 cardigan and 5 drawstring bags which will eventually be filled with goodies for new mothers and their babies in Africa.
I have various knitting projects on the go. They had to bow out gracefully while I got up to speed on my laptop, But, fingers crossed, it's all systems go and I'm firing on all cylinders again. Hopefully, my new laptop will do the same!
