This is what has put the smile on my face today Wheeeee!!!!
Did I ever believe that at 60 something a computer would be such a large part of my life
My new computer came today ...now I have to spend time working out how the heck you use Windows 7 after 5 yrs of XP.
Must invite grand son Harvey around he is 7yrs old and knows all there is to know about Windows 7.
So a nice new Toshiba laptop is all mine, it is white but I can live with that ... it is different but I can take change I guess ...... have lots to catch up with and a few pictures of stitching but will have to wait until I find out how to attach camera and down load.
Like many other pensioners it is a life line it has opened up the world to me and my family, it did not matter where in the world we lived we could be instantly in touch .. many of the people we know world wide are now on internet and many of them have come to the computer late in life some are in late their 70's and 80's years of age.
Stay a while and browse I chat about all nature of things mainly quilting and embroidery,but also life around us the fields, the flowers and family
Copying things from my blog
I am quite happy for people to use anything that I publish on my blog, if you wish to copy that is just great by me, I would treat that as a compliment, if it goes to a good cause then that is a double bonus.
Me. I am 70 yrs young, I finally went to university when I was in my 40's and received my diploma the same year as my daughter received hers. So there was life in the old gal.
I have been a follower and followed my then husband around the world, he working and me..I had a wonderful time and would not have changed a thing the experiences are 100 fold, I really must get around to writing a book. We have lived in France, USA, UK, Spain, Kuwait, Jordan, Philippines, China, Bahrain, Dubai and NZ to name but a few.
My nomadic life began in 1977 when my then husband was offered a job in Kuwait / Dubai Our wanderings continued and finally we ended up again in Dubai in 2006/9.. 30yrs later, so life has been in a full circle.
Stitching and Quilting kept me sane in all these years and are now my best friends. 2013 now sees me at home in New Zealand with my children and grand children and my last move from these shores. Vacations apart of course.
