grrrrrrrrrrrrr computer!

10 Aug

no this is not a promotion, it's a test photo!!

There should be TEARS on this keyboard!

A quiet afternoon in.  The first quiet afternoon in weeks, as we’ve had a run of visitors this summer and lots of wine tastings, dinners, lunches and a trip to London even.  So I thought it was about time to catch up on things. 

I had photos from all sources: my old camera went on the blink a couple of months ago and I’ve been begging and borrowing cameras and phones from all parts.  Then it was my birthday last month and I was treated to a new one (it was a ‘big’ birthday I’ll admit).

So anyway, here I was full of shots to download, ready and keen at the keyboard and then things started going WRONG!

To cut a whole (RRRRrrrrrrrrrr) afternoon’s story short:  internet forums and friends on the phone come in handy!!!   It’s amazing how much you learn when you stuff up (and isn’t it great when you re-experience the relevance of a cliche!! ).  

So what you see above isn’t a quickie promotion for a brand , but  my test picture to help try and retrieve, amongst other problems, my ‘lost’ photos during a hugely sweaty and stressy experience. So sorry for the plug –  it just seemed appropriate to expose the culprit of my afternoon’s angst.

Back soon with an enlightened me.

    Hi Kat, love your photos – especially the one of the French door knob. Makes me wish I had made it to France this summer. Nevertheless, I went back to OZ and caught up with friends and family. Caught up with Uncle Richard in Adelaide, and he seemed in fine spirits. It would be wonderful if he could make it over to visit you and yours in France.
    Love the blog – keep up the great work!

      Thanks a lot LIz, I appreciate your feedback on it! Uncle Richard has told me a lot about you and it would be lovely to meet you in person one of these days!
      Give us a yell if you get the chance to get to our side… Kat

        If you are ever going home via Dubai, let me know, I would love to show you around. It is a far cry from France, but worth a visit if you haven’t been here before – and don’t mind a bit of sand 🙂 L
