Running Late !

Hi Folks ,Late entry..........Maurices friend came over this morning,Showing me lots of lovely skills....  that I  had no idea about , you could say it was a computer lesson,John gave the lesson wether his pupil managed to take it on board ,remains to be seen,Maurice was home in bed after working six nights ,and he got up before John left,they chatted for a while....after John left,we went into Huntingdon ,where we bought a new mouse because John  said ours was tired and didnt always click ,but guess what ,I have new desk as well !a lovely new Pine one that goes with the rest of our furniture...I am so excited its flat pack and its still in the car and the man who is to put it together has fallen asleep on the couch ! Ah well ,once I've done this entry I will make him a nice dinner and wake him up and then chat him up, to start assembling it.

Did you see on the welcome page AOL is running a silver surfers week ...and I'm sure you all know by now they, asked me if they could feature my journal,highly honoured to be asked ,I accepted .I have been ,between being  on cloud nine  and becoming a butterfly breeder (in my tum ),with all sorts of ideas,flitting in and out of my brain ...all excited to see what was happening ,I went on line this morning to find Joanna Lumleys picture ,then Jaquline Bisset and Honor Blackman ,and pause to swoon ......Sean Connery ,Jeremy Irons and Harrison Ford .Hey this gets better, I am in exallated company arent I ?We are all categorised,now as silver surfers .Well done ! AOL no one has ever found a category to fit me into before !

Now about all the ideas I have ....because I have been out today ,and am later than I would normally be doing an ,entry,I am going to start in ernest tomorrow ,thats another joy about getting older ,your decisions are always the right ones !if I put my ideas into practise tonight I wouldnt do it justice ,I told you all aboutwork a couple of weeks ago,in an entry entitled "Another day another Dollop" then the following day I told you about the party we had when I retired ,so tomorrow I will tell you how I felt ,when I retired and found AOL journals/blogs which saved my sanity !

Have a good evening every one ....With Love From Thankyou to Donna for my lovely graphics today ,Donna is in my side bar ,pay her journal a visit ,and hear about her life ,she likes Hockey, when shes not producing super graphics to enhance our journals/blogs

Hi mum, how you doing? I don't know how to get onto the AOL page to read about you, not sure if it's just your page that i can read that is on show or not. I have just got back from taking the dog out and stu and martin and boys are here. We are gonna have some tea and then chill out. Hope your man builds your desk for you. Have a nice work with him. Love you loads. See you soon.

Hiya........hope you took some of it in at least!!! I need a new mouse, mine is a little slow now and I think it needs to retire in favour of a younger optical mouse, think it is knackered through working too hard, lol!!!

Congratulations on being chosen to be a silver surfer. Great entry today all newsy the way we like it.  I think its about time I got a new desk but will have to wait what with the new windows plumbers and Stuart is getting to see a dentist at last but has to have it all done private before he can get on the plan that I have. I thought I was going to comment and it has turned out to be a short novel. Love Joan.

nedmoh said...

you are in exalted company in aol's Silver Surfers week ....Sean Connery ~ there will never be another James Bond like him ~ I think you should be introduced to him lol ~ as usual I am looking forward to what you have planned for us ~ I know as always it will be worth a read ~ look forward to your thoughts on finding AOL journals/blogs after you retired ~ Donna's Graphics are lovely ~ Ally

lindaggeorge said...

Congratulations Jan. I saw something about the Silver Surfers this morning but didn't have time to read it. Now AOL have lost the proper Welcome Screen, so I can't look, hopefully they will sort it out soon.

Linda.

My mouse is a bit knackered like me!! When I saw the pic of Joanna Lumley today I thought it was you, I was thinking.....ooh, our Jan scrubs up well!! It looks like AOL have given us a new Welcome Page now, it suddenly appeared this afternoon and doesn't give as much info as the old one! It hasn't even got the Blogs on it!! That's progress for you! We want to see your new desk when Maurice makes it. Mine has doors on to protect it from pussy intruders! Look forward to tomorrows entry! Jeannette xx

sugarsweet056 said...

I recently had to break down & get a new mouse too, my wheel wasn't working!
Lucky you getting a new desk too, WOO HOO!
Congrats again on the Silver Surfers, we gals over that "certain age" have to stick together...hehehe.
Hugs, Sugar

msecz said...

Congratulations on being one of the first silver serfers... it is an honor well deserved I think. Maurice should be able to put the desk together without a problem once he has enough rest... I bet its hard to wait but worth it. Sandra

labdancer51 said...

Hello Jan, Now we have our very own nominated Silver Surfer.  Good for you with the new mouse and computer table.  I`m alright in the mouse department but my desk has seen better days, I suppose it will have to do for the time being.  Looking forward to the entries you post this week. :o)

irisclyde said...

Congratulations, you Silver Surfer you! I would ask you for your autograph, but I already have it! Hope the new desk is up and running soon......well, perhaps not running, but you know what I mean.

siennastarr said...

Jan... I know this may sound like a stupid question, but will we in America, be able to access this "Silver Surfer" website.  I would love to read about you there.  

{Told you it was a stupid question..lol)

Have a great week, Jan!

Jackie

Congratulations Jan, but I think it's Joanna and Sean who should feel honoured to be in your company. Have a nice evening. B. x

wobblymoo said...

Congratulaaaaaaaaaations, you fit in nicely with those names :0)

mllevl said...

Ah ..after your personal tuiton we can expect even greater things then?  Enjoy your week Jan.  Eve

edwardssoapy said...

Well done Jan. Joanna and Sean should be honoured to have you in their company..."Silver surfer". Glad you had bought a new mouse. I was given a wireless one for Christmas but quickly switched back to my old one as it was too big and chunky. Hope your new desk is now assembled and you are happy.

hugs

madcobug said...

Congrats again silver surfer. Bet you can't wait to get that new desk put together. Helen

cacklinrosie101 said...

I could certainly use a lesson or two with the computer.  My daughter tries but gets very frustrated with me.  LOL...I'm supposing since I'm 52 I would be considered a silver surfer.  Thank heavens for Lady Clairol.  I have to go check the welcome page because I didn't notice it but your journal is certainly a well deserved journal to feature.  Can't wait to hear the rest of your retirement story.  HUGS  Chris

xxroxymamaxx said...

No I didn't know about the silver surfer thing. cool.  Congrats. I will have to go check that out! Hugs and GBU, Shelly

sarajanesmiles said...

Congratulations to you once again m'dear!!

frdbrow7 said...

Thanks for the wireless alert Jan, and to Jeannette too, if she's reading this.  The alerts are very uncertain aren't they? Hope you don't mind if I use your page to send one of my own Jan ;-)
as I have managed to do another entry
http://journals.aol.co.uk/frdbrow7/FredasDiaries/
I often wonder what I am missing, please leave me your url so that I can visit you all back.  Ok advert intermission over :-)
Lucky old you, having a one to one computer lesson, I hope you will pass on some of what you've learned eh? Congrats on the new desk, hope it doesn't end up as cluttered as mine :-(  Don't want to seem boastful, but I put together my own (two tier) computer desk, but it wasn't without its mishaps  =:-O
ttfn
Freda

salonrose123 said...

Are you posting a picture of your new desk? I'd love to see it.  I got a new one a wee while ago....my other one was too small.  This one's a bit big so it'll be getting moved into the spare room eventually.  Like you, I'll have to sweet-talk hubby into doing it!!
Take care,

icklemisssexpot said...

OHhhhhhh our jan is famous now <gggg> Not so sure we've saved your sanity like i know am still trying to find mine <ggg>   Caff xxxxx

jmoqueen said...

I did actually click on the silver surfers week on the welcome screen looking for your journal but I couldn't find it :-(  Still I can't wait to read your entry ideas :-)  Hope Maurice managed to put your computer desk together xx
