In memory of family and friends who have lost the battle with cancer; and in support of the ones who continue to conquer it!

Post this on your LJ if you know someone who has or had cancer. 93% won't copy and paste this. Will you?

Well, THAT was a great start to the new year!!

I went out to my car this afternoon to go to Starbucks and satisfy my coffee craving and the bl**dy car wouldn't start! Not a spark of life in it. Nothing. Zilch.
This is where parents are very useful. I borrowed dad's car to get my coffee, and then he came out to jump start mine.
Except we couldn't find the jump leads. THREE cars in this household, and did any of them have a set of jump leads? Of COURSE not!!
So, I snaffled dad's car AGAIN to go and BUY some jump leads from the garage (luckily they had some) and then we got the car started, finally, in the dark, and the cold. And then I had to drive round for a bit to charge the battery up. So it works again now, which is good, but it's a damned good job I decided I needed coffee, because otherwise I'd have gone out to the car tomorrow morning to go to work, and been totally screwed, because dad would already be at work, and I'm not insured on mum's car so I wouldn't be able to borrow that, and we'd not have had any findable jump leads and I'd have been VERY late for work!
Still not quite sure how the battery got flat. The only thing I can think is that I somehow caught the switch for the interior light when I put my new tax disc in last night. Grrr!!

Oh well, tis all sorted now, but is this a bad omen for the coming year?

Gather was great. Journey up was LESS great. journey back was better than journey up, but still took MUCH too long.
knackered. over 700 miles in 3 days. But Gather was very shiny and everyone was lovely.

I am a VERY happy bunny!

For the last six months my computer has been the spawn of the devil, and has denied posessing a sound card or USB ports. This meant I couldn't print, upload photos from my camera, play music, watch DVDs etc etc.

I thought I was going to have to reinstall windows, and lose all my files etc, but thanks to Darren (AKA Mr [ profile] weird_bird ;)) and my dad, I've managed to sort it by running the repair program on the windows disc, so now everything works again, and I haven't lost any files!!!!

*bounces muchly!!!!*

Well, I've been told I have to update, so I am.

I went to the bank to pay my credit card bill, and stopped on the way home to get petrol, and as I came out of the petrol station I was abducted by aliens in a flying saucer. It was fun.
