Hoorah, new and slightly updated copy of Windows successfully installed. I think. The main difficulty I had was that I couldn't get the c:\ drive to format, which was weird. It just refused to do it, no matter which way I went about it. (Any ideas, anyone?) So I ended up installing over the top of my old version, which has caused some slight confusion. On the plus side, it meant I didn't have to restore anything much. There was lots of tedious reinstalling of programs, but I'm pretty much done now. Phew!
Other than that, my day went something like this:Weather:
*nice, maybe even sunny*Me:
*leaves the house to walk to physio appt*Weather:
Ahahah, sucker! *rains*Me:
*arrives at physio*Weather:
*leaves physio to walk home*Weather:
*lets me walk for about a minute, then starts hailing. then raining. a lot.*LaterMe:
*leaves house to walk down to the bus stop*Weather:
*waits about 10 seconds, then RAINS*Me:
*gets on bus*Weather:
*no more rain*
Clearly it's a conspiracy. On the positive side, the physio appointment was good, and hopefully my back will be fixed fairly soon. Which will be nice. And it didn't
rain on me when I was at my digital photography course and we were out and about taking pictures. Which was lots of fun - all sorts of pretentious arty shots were taken... and some silly ones as well. *g* Now all I have to do is track down which of my unpacked boxes the box for my camera is in, because inside that in turn (like Russian dolls, only way more confusing) is the USB cable. Which I'm going to need for next week!
Creative writing was good last week, as well. I'm getting into my new routine pretty well now, which is great. And to my own surprise, I made it to both Yogalates with Ally on Wednesday evening, and to Pilates on Saturday. I'd actually decided on Friday not to bother going on Sat morning, and to just have a lie in instead... and then I woke up at 8am. Of course, the mog promptly realised I was awake, came up to my end of the bed and started pulling my hair and yowling in my ear. *sigh* So once I was up to give him breakfast, I figured I might as well get dressed, and before I knew it I was on the bus. I'm glad I went - it was really good, and I also discovered that it was the last class. They're going to be doing Yoga at that time instead in the future. Must give Ally a ring to tell her! And since it was a nice sunny day, I decided I couldn't be bothered to come straight home and sit on the computer all day reinstalling things, so I got off the bus early and surprised my Mum by popping in for a visit for a couple of hours. I got fed, too, which was nice, and not at all
part of my cunning plan ;-) So yes, all in all it's going well, and I think factoring in 'days off' has been a definite good idea. I spent all day yesterday lounging around reading actual paper books without feeling that I "ought" to be doing something else. Hoorah!
