New computer and quick update

Well we had to bite the bullet and buy a  new computer!  After much careful thought and consideration and weighing up all the pros and cons ................. we went with Apple!  And it's fantastic but having to learn a whole new system at our age is a wee bit daunting to say the least but the best bit is I now seem able to get onto blogger again with virtually no problems so in my eyes that's a #bonus.  It is quite funny though having to Google the simplest queries - couldn't even work out how to print :) 

The full computer is quite different to an iPad or iPhone but we are getting there slowly but it is so nice to be back in the world of blogger and the world wide web :) 

Quick miniature update - nothing much happening apart from slowly working on Petite Properties 1:24 scale retro caravan and also working slowly on 1:24 scale Pumpkin Cottage.  We ordered some wonderful lights from Herdwick Landscapes and some other wonderful lights from J S Miniatures and these are slowly going in now.   The floor downstairs is in Pumpkin Cottage and even if I say so myself looks quite good.   If it brightens up at all I will take some photos to show you.  

We've just undergone a dreadful review at work and what a mess.   Hubby reckons the managers went out on a night and by the 10th Vodka they had another 'cracking idea'!!  Left our department so short staffed and in some other departments up to 7 secretaries have resigned!  There is still a huge number on sick leave too.   Most of the admin staff were downgraded including myself and whilst not happy at being downgraded and doing the same job I've done for years, I really didn't want the new Band 4 role which is now managerial!  So far it's a complete failure but we are expected to do double the work, in a faster time as well!! 

Anyway off to do some housework, then I'm going to get myself a cuppa and sit and catch up with blogs - heaven at last :)

  3. My daughter loves her apple computer, it links with their apple TV. Work has not improved for you, all the messing when all you want to do is a fair wage for a fair days work.

  4. Oh Marlene I'm getting used to it and it's a joy to use and so nice to be able to post, email, etc again. I think it was a good buy. You're so right a fair wage for a fair days work. Its happening every where now - you've been through it too!

  6. I look forward to coming home from work every night :) If I can do the caravan you can - it was daunting (or still is) but I've gone for simplistic :) It's still in the flat stage although painted :)

  9. It's nice to see you back and I'm sure you're glad you have your minis to escape to when things aren't so good at work. I really hope they improve for you soon. It can't be a good start to your day if you're not looking forward to it.
