It's been ages since I last blogged...

Partly because our computer decided to suddenly shut down one day and wouldn't restart. Turned out it was just the power supply within the computer that had failed so an easy fix really and not too expensive, although it still took the best part of two weeks to get it back from the repairers! We were already planning on replacing it in the next few weeks so we wouldn't have been too disappointed if it had been a major problem and not worth repairing! I can't bear being without my computer, so in desperation I dragged out the old laptop that our eldest had used for university. It's getting on a bit now and hadn't been powered up for almost two years. I eventually got it up and running after formatting the hard drive and re-installing the operating system. Took a bit of fiddling to get the broadband connection going but I got there in the end. Not quite the same as having my old computer but at least I could check my emails and still do a little stash shopping..lol!

I also woke up one morning almost totally deaf. It was the weirdest thing, I couldn't even hear my own footsteps! I thought at first that it was due to the bit of a cold I had because it had come on so suddenly but after well over a week and just my right ear clearing a bit it's still no better. On Monday I went to the doctors and as suspected my ears need syringing. I can't wait until next week for my appointment, this is driving me nuts, my head just feels like it wants to explode at times!

You would think that having limited computer use with the old laptop I would have got plenty of stitching done, but no! My stupid ears have made me feel a little out of sorts and I've been getting quite a few headaches too which is probably due to my ears, so although I've been wanting to stitch I haven't really felt up to doing much recently. I do have a couple of smalls stitched though that just need finishing, so I'm hoping to be able to post pictures soon!

I know the feeling, although I had a severe ear infection and a perforated ear drum. Never felt pain like it before.

I hope you're feeling better now.
