Guess Who Got a New Toy

Finally I am back my christmas present from the other half arrived yesterday and after a few hours pressing buttons, swearing just a little and making oaths that I will never let a computer die on me again the new one is just about set up.  I say just about as there is always at least one hitch in my case it is Word I cannot find the disc anywhere much less the code that is attached to it therefore I have got a 60 free trial while I tear the house to bits searching for it before admitting defeat and shelling out money for the new one.  I have got Corel office but I have no idea if that is compatible with amazon or whether I can download straight from scrivener bypassing word altogether if anyone know the answers please let me know.

I hope you all had a good christmas I did as I think this picture sums up…


The one thing I actually quite like about Christmas is the table, I love the excuse to get out all the tableware and the best dinner service, and if I lived in a different age and had servants to do the washing up I may be tempted to do it far more often.


I was lucky though I did have a little help making the starter and dessert this year…(for the foodies out there it was roasted butternut squash and sweet potato soup for starter and triple chocolate cheesecake for dessert)


I am working out a new blogging schedule for the new year which I hope to share with you over the next few days as I get back into the swing of things plus I need to work out how to use the photo software on this computer to make new headers for the categories.

  1. I love butternut squash! Looks like your Christmas was fab.


  2. Aww…looked that little guy’s innocent smile. You’re braver than me, I don’t have the patience to cook with Kyle.


  3. Ah, the Christmas table. 🙂

    A new computer! They don’t even give discs with the software anymore, everything is just downloaded. I haven’t got brave enough to do the Office on line thing, but it is out there. Kind of like Google Docs?


    1. I presume it will be not really played with it yet am going to look round see what offers I can see for it as I really need a new printer aswell could have cried when I looked at prices for buying office I could understand when it was a disc and they were worried people were handing them round but now they want you to download it surely they could cut costs a little, maybe I will buy student version until I make enough writing to pay for the professional version lol


  4. Looks like you had plenty of help in the kitchen 🙂


  5. The table is beautiful, Monster is adorable, and I’m so glad you have a computer that works and makes you happy! Happy New Year, Paula!


  6. Doesn’t do to be too envious of our friends’ new toys does it – but it does bring home the point that I’m still using the computer with its internal organs spread all over the desk!


    1. mines organ went into complete failure it was all I could do to get it to stay on life support long enough to rescue my files I know they should now always be kept backed up but there was a problem and some of the files had not backed up properly I nearly cried
