I have been experiencing problems with my computer for a few days now. (Right now I am on my iPad) Well for months really. It is an old laptop which no longer fully charges. I did try to buy a new charging cord thinking that would sort the problem out, but it really hasn’t. The most charged my lap top gets is about 13%, so not ideal.
Add to that the problem I am having with photo bucket. For years I have hosted my photos on there, and paid to do so. For the last couple of years I haven’t used it for my photos, instead choosing to directly upload them to the blogs. I should have been doing that all along, but all of my old photos, family ones etc. Are stored on photo bucket. For some reason this stopped working over a week ago. I couldn’t even log onto the site. I pay an annual fee to store my photos there, even though I no longer technically use it. I do that because I don’t want to lose the years of work I have put into both my blogs, as well as my art blog. Today I can log into it, but none of my photos are showing still. I did try to renew my plan. It took all my payment details, but still no dice. Colour me frustrated.
On the plus side I’m finished my antibiotics now, so that’s good. I hope I don’t need anymore.
I am not sure how I can go on. I can’t buy a new laptop and using my iPad to blog with is not ideal to say the least. I’ve always had problems doing that. I am totally surprised I have gotten this far this morning. For one thing my iPad won’t allow me to comment on any blogs, including my own, so I can’t respond to comments or leave my own comments. This irks me because I have always prided myself on being diligent in responding. If people can take the time to write then I should take the time to respond. That’s what takes me so long each morning. NOT complaining. I love it. I sometimes have to respond to a couple hundred on my EK Facebook page, but I do it. I remember when Ariana was living with us she questioned why I did that and said she would never spend the time. But that’s me. I spend the time and always will.
Not sure how I can continue without my laptop though or with all those ugly blank spaces showing up where my photos used to be. Hopefully the photos will show up again, fingers crossed. I feel bad because I have been unable to comment on blogs, or respond to your lovely comments.
We will just have to wait and see what happens. 2019 certainly has been my annus-horribilius! Even the Queen has those!
I’ll be back when all is sorted, but in the meantime I hope you forgive my silence on here. Hopefully it won’t be for too long!
