So far, so Good!

Yesterday after we went to DH's eye appointment we went shopping for the new computer. ( isn't it amazing how long it all takes. ) Anyway we decided on an HP - the best for our requirements and DH wanted extra grunt so we got extra put in on the spot ( so we don't have to take it back later to get it done! ) We spent more than I thought we were going to, but that often happens if DH goes shopping! You've all been there done that so I won't tell the whole saga - briefly we got it all together and it is up and running, but I have spent hours getting it all going as we are used to.( very proud of my efforts ) So far there has only been one ooops with the digital camera...it didn't like me using the new computer and after I had, I had to reformat the card. Hope I have sorted it all.The good news is I can still access and use the important places like Blogger....so I can still visit with you all.
While we were in the city I got my Bernina checked and Yes I was right....it did need adjusting. It's purring along now. Haven't had any sewing time though.
We nearly got blown away in the kiwifruit orchard this afternoon...It's blowing a damaging howling gale.
I have P & Q Group tomorrow...Good....Better get some work ready to take. Happy sewing everyone!
( this is the 1st blog from the new puter! )

Congrats on the new computer! What operating system does it have?

It's got Windows XP Media Edition. As always it has some new features but has lost some others. I hope to add back in the ones I want. So far I am really enjoying typing with the new key board...we knew our old one was sluggish and never put in the spaces unless one laboured over them. Hope I continue to find this new one has hidden talent!
