What a week...

Hi folks...thank goodness it's Friday...I can't wait for the weekend after this crazy 3 day week...just when I was polishing my halo...magazine commission done...power washing done...DT project in the bag...the Thursday morning gremlins decided to bring me right back down to earth. Do you ever have one of those days when you would probably have been better off staying in early morning dental appointment wasn't the best start to the day but silly me for thinking that once the 10 minutes in the torture chamber was behind me..what I had planned for the rest of the day was going to be plain sailing.

photograph battery was as dead as a dodo
OK while that's charging move on
to saving last week's projects to drawer is jammed and won't open
but not to is just a mouse click away courtesy of the nice man on the Dell Help Desk...apparently there's an easy fix...uncurl a paper clip and poke it into the hole in the CD drawer...slight problem because I can't see any hole...after half an hour on my hands and knees I finally located that little sucker with the aid of a magnifying glass. Bingo we're cooking by gas...projects saved but now the CD won't eject and I've thrown the paper clip (the last one in the box) in the bin. And according to Dell Diagnostics the CD drive is kaput...knackered...on it's last legs..I know exactly how it feels so before the gremlins could wreck anything else...I hightailed it out of out to the garden with my Furry Helper in tow...
to tackle the next outdoor job on the list...something that involves absolutely no technological wizardry...just a can of paint and a brush...
and woohoo the sun put his hat on and before you know...5 fence panels have been given a fresh coat of paint...just another...who knows...I'm not go
and today while hubby demolishes the old fence at the other side of the garden and constructs a new one...I'm out of here...I'll be kicking up my heels with the Friday Girls and because I had the foresight to wear gloves yesterday I won't be turning up looking like the jolly green giant.
Have a great weekend everyone...the weather is forecast to be sunny and warm...enjoy it while we can...this may well be Summer. See you all on Monday over at Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge.
Toodle oo for now

  1. Good grief Kath just reading that has exhausted me where do you get your energy from. Xxx

  2. Yep, I know those days, but right now I wish I had time to stay in bed. Instead, I'm working my butt off on a nightmare revisioon job, cleaning up another translator's mess, and it looks like I'm going to be working all weekend to make up for lost time on my other projects...

  3. Nightmare !
    Glad you managed to get out in the garden (I'm hoping this warm spell has dried my fence panels enough to give them a fresh coat of stain - I keep looking at the faded patches and end up groaning at the thought).
    Have a super weekend.

  4. Oh dear glad you got that all sorted and had some time outdoors. Enjoy your day out

  5. Now that's what I call a bad day! I am glad it ended on a positive though, the fence looks beautiful. Hope you have a lovely time with the Friday Girls and no more mishaps, I think you have had your share for a while! Hugs, Anne xx

  6. I so hate these kind of days Kath!!! But at least the day improved when you took yourself outside and the fence looks the colour x have a great time with the FG's and I hope you have a relaxing weekend x
    Hugs Annie x

  7. Oh dear, you sure have had a week of it! The panels look great, we will be doing ours on Monday, hoping the sun stays for a few days! Enjoy your weekend and hope you enjoyed your day with the Friday girls.
