The weekend,has gone again.

Here we go, another Monday where do the weeks go,certainly faster as you get older."Swift to its close,ebbs out lifes little day"..........morbid line from the lovely hymn,but apt!I frown on morbid but now and again....It must be my cold,(or the after effects)Well I finished up last night with a black border down the side of the screen I couldnt easily access the pages to scroll up and down ,I had half an hour on the phone to Jean my sister, this morning came back to the PC and its healed up again ,back to normal ,so was it me or jolly old AOL??,cus I didnt do anything honest!!

A week last Friday Jean and Pete came over for the evening we usually have things of interest to pass on to each other ,photos news paper cuttings books etc,Jean had got a flyer from W H Smith advertising their bargains,and since she knew our printer was poorly,here was one advertised for £49.99 reduced from £99.99,photocopies/scans as well ,First thing Saturday morning I was on the phone to them ,yes they had one left, oh could you save it for me ,I will collect this afternoon,yes ,fine.Glyn next door was away on holiday,so what do I do !!The instructions looked straight forward enough!!But working on the theory if I mess up, he would have to put it right, I was very good, and waited till he came home late Saturday, Sunday morning, Maurice went fishing ,Glyns Mum and Stepdad,went to the cricket(hes not keen)so Glyn and I had a good day sorting out my computer,and of course installing the printer,He helped me to put my picture onto my journal,following Jeannettes instructions.There are still so many things I want to do but Ill get there ,

On Saturday,(Im going backwards here ,my grasshopper brain)Maurice took daughter Catherine and I to the Freemans outlet shop,where because of his work connections he gets a further 30% off,I bought 3 pairs of trousers,A lovely embroidered throw for the bed,some jeans for Maurice and some towels,all for just over £30,"dont ya just love a bargain ?"Kate bought alot too!So that was the weekend,Im working tomorrow and Friday, at the court I retired from so Im off to do some house work now.

         Have a good one folks with love Jan xx

I have a printer/scanner/photocopier too, they're good aren't they? Like the sound of your bargains!! How DO you put your photo on the About me box?? I've tried and only got a square with a red cross in it which doesn't look a bit like me!! Jeannette.

Wow, some good bargains there and I am nosy as well, I would like to know the colour of your throw.  It is great when we get new things for the computer isn't it?  You remind me of the days when we first had ours and we did not have a clue what to do with it but little by little you learn and then find yourself helping others!

Ever notice that the weekends go much faster than the weeks?   Especially if the week involves going to work.

when I travel over there I have to remember to do the conversion of the money in my head...... sometimes something that looked appealing before I figured it out in $$ looks a little different :):) So nice to visit you. judi
