crash, bang, it's all ok, sale!


last week i posted a note in the etsy forums about joining in this weekend's huge sale {buy an original and receive a free print} then on wednesday, just after i had a sale come from madeit in the minutes before i had to leave the house to pick up my 4yr old from kinder} my computer froze and started to make a noise like a vacuum cleaner. i tried to restart etc but no luck. i left the house in a state of mild panic . . . i had not made any backups in the whole 2yrs, 7 months of owning this computer! . . . all the photos of the kids, all my work . . .
when i returned the situation hadn't fixed itself! so the last few days has been filled with dread, panic and STRESS. for more than 24 hours i didn't know if i had lost all of the above and/or the computer. in the mean time a friend came around with an external hard drive {an early christmas present} and saved everything, and my husband took the sick mac to get looked at and it turns out that it's just a case of memory loss - and luckily with computers we can buy them new memory! it's still getting fixed {hence my clumsy post via my husband's pc laptop} and i'm pretty sure it'll all be ok next week - i will get my limbs back!! and i promise i will backup from now on . . .
life, sales and thankfully the weekend must go on!
happy saturday :)
