I hate it when my laptop gives me more trouble then pleasure. For something that normally cost me five minutes, took 45 minutes last Saturday! Tell you more later in the post.
For the first four days of the past week, I didn’t do much other than working out and blogging. Oh yes, and returning parcels. Didn’t find a perfect floral dress yet, but there is no hurry as the weather is still much to cold. The temperatures here are more winter then spring. And we are almost in May already!
What did I do last week
Monday evening I had a Teams meeting with the ladies of the lung point. We organize meetings for lung patients. But we haven’t done that for a year now. We are going to see if there is interest in a digital coffee table. Nice to do! I also had such a nice phone call with the supplier of my wheelchair, NOT! My battery is broken and it has been gone for repair for five weeks now. And I had such an annoying person on the phone, not normal. She had no idea what I was talking about because she wouldn’t let me finish any sentence. How I hate that.
Lucky I got someone else on the phone because with that person I got no further. But it will probably take weeks before I get the battery back. Actually, if you have to depend on a company it is worthless. What a service they have nowadays, not normally that bad.
In the weekend on Saturday I worked out and we took some outfit photos. Gerben was working outside the house all day. I still had to do something on the laptop, but that was also a drama, so much trouble with my old laptop at the moment. I ordered a new one at the beginning of January, but it has been on the road for 3 months. Or on a ship to be exact. I don’t know what it is. The problem is that a chip takes such a long time to come from China. And in the meantime mine is so incredibly slow, it drives me crazy. It takes fifteen minutes before I get it to start up and then everything goes so slowly.
So annoying. Annoying isn’t even the good word for it. I can get so angry sometimes and frustrated that I want to throw the hole damn laptop to the ground! Haha, which I don’t of course. I will have to phone the guy from the shop again that I really need a solution! But I am holding my breath, companies and I aren’t the best team lately.
We really made it a lazy day on Sunday. Watched the Grand Prix in the afternoon! Yeah Max! And in the evening we got a takeaway. I was also not quite well over the weekend. I don’t know what I’ve been having lately, but I don’t feel okay more often than I do. Will have to take it easy this week and hope it will pass. It feels a bit like a long dirge here on Throwback Tuesday! Sorry, but that’s what my life looks like at the moment. Have a good week!
Sorry to hear about the laptop issues. It can be annoying! You look fab in the dress and white boots and I love the lilac skirt!
Thank you very much!
I cannot believe your wheelchair battery has taken so long to get replaced and that you are still waiting! That is completely unacceptable, how dare they! Laptop trouble is no fun either, I am sorry things have been so frustrating lately. I hope things turn around soon!
Thanks , I hope so too!
So sorry about your laptop issues. Dying over this owl in your garden. So majestic and beautiful! I love this first look on you so much!
It’s almost a painting isn’t it! I think owls are so beautiful!
Despite your phone call troubles and your computer troubles, you look quite lovely! Loving your lilac skirt and trainers but really all of your pretty dresses are just perfect! Very stylish! Hope you rest this week and things go better.
I love the lilac skirt, so pretty for spring! I hope the weather improves, and you have a better week.
Thank you very much!
I absolutely abhor technological hitches, especially as I don’t know the first thing about technology. I still find it a miracle that I managed to start my blog! How horrible about your wheelchair being gone for repairs for such a long time! And people not treating you nice on the phone really is a no-no!
On the other hand, your pre-loved Zara dress is gorgeous, and looks absolutely amazing on you. And how absolutely delightful to have an owl visit your garden! xxx
P.S. I’m sorry to read you are not getting notifications of my blog posts. The email thing worked for me and Jos (we have subscribed too, to see if it worked), but once or twice we didn’t get the emails either. Not sure what to do about. I just got a message on blogger that the Feedburner email subscription will no longer be available from July …
Oh dear, okay then I just have to remind myself that I visit your blog. On what days exactly are you publishing Ann?
Oh Nancy it was not your week in technical things. ?Hope it get better!
But you look gorgeous in your outfits ?
No it wasn’t! Thanks Tina!
Technology can be so frustrating because it just doesn’t reason with you, LOL!!
But I am swooning over that lilac skirt!! For some reason it seems to be such a popular color lately!!
And that owl?? How cool. Do you hear it too? That’s one good way to help with pest control!!
No we dot hear it yet, but when the evenings get warmer , and we sit outside more, we will here him and see him on the hunt for mice. Last year there was a nest, hopefully this year too!
What an awful week for you – health, laptop , battery. It’s hard to understand how companies with poor customer service can survive these days! Loving your lilac skirt. Hope next week will be better- at least the weather is slowly improving
Indeed, you would think they would be much politer to their customers!
Sorry to hear that you are not 100% and the things that you really need (your PC and a wheelchair) are taking so long to arrive. Nevertheless you look lovely, Nancy and I like your day to day outfits. Hope you are feeling better 🙂
Well your kind words make me feel better dear Anna!
Ugh I am so sorry about your laptop issues and also your wheelchair issues. SO annoying!! On a more positive note, I LOVE that lilac outfit and also that owl!! I hope that you are having a better week this week too. XO, Caroline
Thank you very much Caroline!
That Laura Ingalls dress is SO pretty! I hope you kick whatever is making you feel yucky soon! I had my Covid shot and felt a little off for a few days after I got it and then I came down with a cold that I’m just now recovering from. SO, I am hoping next week is a lot more productive for me. Oh, I hate laptop issues!! My husband is pretty much my IT person, thankfully he knows how to fix most things!
Oh I do hope you feel better by now! That is handy, that your husband knows how it works!
Ugh, that sounds like a nightmare, dealing with your laptop, Nancy. I hope it gets sorted out soon. Don’t throw your laptop! ;-P
Love your fun outfits! Your hair is looking amazing in all of these pics!
Oh thanks! I always think my hair looks awful!
I hate laptop issues! Anything tech! Love these dresses on you. I’m so jealous you have owls in your back yard!
Yes they are so gorgeous aren’t they! There are two in one tree!
Computer troubles are the absolute worst! But you look marvelous in all of these wonderful outfits! That first dress is so cool! And I love your little owl friend in the garden. I want one. We just have a very loud woodpecker who sits way up high in our backyard tree.
Last weekend we saw that there were two owls! Fantastic, they are so beautiful!
