Oh whoops, its nearly midday.
I have had a bad few days, pain wise. So I have resorted to taking my painkillers and sleeping tablets at night again. Back have come the snacks for the early hours of the morning.
I have found a bizarre way of sleeping that relieves the pain.It cam about as I tried to find a comfortable position. I added an extra pillow for my bad leg,but I gave up and went to get up.So with one leg down and dangling I noticed the pain relieved.So in my drugged state I thought I'll just rest here a second and enjoy the sensation.Well 4 hours later I awoke with a cold,numb leg.
So of course I tried it again last night and it still works. God knows why.
Well today after surfing the internet in my scrap room at 5am,having a snack and topping up my tablets,back to bed I went and I woke up at nearly 11am!!!!!!
Changing bedrooms had also worked as the black out curtains make it night-time all the time.Plus it’s so much quieter,not once have I heard everyone else getting ready for work.
Hubby even walked through to get to the bathroom and I was head back snoring.
Talking of weird sleeping positions I managed to capture Teddy asleep on the sofa.I had to crawl on all fours to get my camera ,so as not to wake him.
of course he woke up and gave me that look.
You know that black hole in everyone's house that swallows up the socks.
Well, it swallowed up my external hard drive.
I religiously updated it every week. I got it out and put it on the landing and that was the last anyone saw of it. It just disappeared.We have checked the loft 4 times, the cellar.We’ve cleared out every drawer, looked under all the furniture, but its vanished. We even checked the local charity shop we had recently donated to.
I waited and waited thinking it would turn up somewhere obscure, but it didn’t. I hadn’t had it long, so I was cross I’d have to buy another one, but buy another one I did this weekend. So, no doubt the bloody thing will turn up now.
I’m going to probably buy a monitor calibrator today. I have been talking myself into it for a few months. I am sick of my prints coming back dark or different to what I see on my monitor. I never knew such a thing existed ,until I did Karen Russell's photography workshop. That class has a lot to answer for. I have spent an indecent amount of money since I took part in it.
I have no idea how easy/hard the calibrator will be to use, but its the first step in maybe buying an iMac to process my photos. It’s my latest item I am trying to talk myself into purchasing.
My son wants it desperately. He has a MacBook and three laptops. But its his MacBook he’s devoted to. So I may allow myself it for my birthday in May. The only problem I can see is that I won’t have Photoshop and that I will have to pay out another £700+ for it .
How sad was it to hear about Amanda Holden's loss this weekend. I keep thinking how devastated she must be feeling.
