Is any body there ?

I am posting this entry in the hopes you are not in the same 'situation 'as me ! I went on line today ,only to find I had no alerts !I know you havent sent me to coventry ,because when I went into my journal there were lots of comments ,that I hadnt recieved an alert for ,I surfed around a few that I guessed would have posted ,and left my comment ,I have checked my alerts arent turned off ,I have turned the commputer off a couple of times ,all to no avail,Ifeel very bereft,looking at the little envelope at the top left hand corner ,with no numbers beside it .........

  Charlotte went home today ,Kate and Martin came over with Sam ,Kate is my youngest and Charlottes, Aunty .Sam and Charlotte are of course cousins so Charlotte had great fun showing Sam ,what she had been doing on the computer ,Though the plan was for Maurice to drop her off at home on his way to work ,she went off with Kate and Martin and Sam ,its quiet,and I miss her already ,but she will be back .Now shes gone and I can have my computer back,I havent got any alerts ,so think I'll just sit here and sulk !    ;>)

  I am sitting here watching 'Goodnight,  Mr Tom' again ,its making me feel happy and sad ! the weather is dark and dreary very windy,so Im not the happiest bunny you have read today ,thats if you get to read this .So before I depress you all further ,I apologise for not commenting ,I miss you ,I will take my leave and wish you a good evening ....with love

Got the alert for this one Jan.  It is a funny situation because some are getting alerts and some are not.  I know Joyce in America is not but I do not seem to be having any problems.  Great photo.  Do you know the Vivi awards are coming back and we are all being asked to vote as to whether we want them?  I have voted yes even after the events of last year purely because I made some nice new friends through them.  So hop over to Vivian, link on my sidebar and cast your vote - yes or no.

Sorry I didn't get back to you as the alert came up but I was in the middle of ordering my online shopping!

May go to the Jubilee Car Boot tomorrow if it's fine :-)

I got an Alert alright but I have had some strange moments, like my Blog having a dark blue header and no button to press to add an entry. I know others have had the same.

Love the picture.

I got your alert, but I guess you can tell some are working as you already had a few comments in your journal.  It's a rainy day here in Ohio and cool too!  'On Ya' - ma

viviansullinwank said...

Congratulations on your journal's first birthday!  I love the picture of you...what a wonderful room  I especially love the rug, I first noticed it in another picture I saw somewhere else in your journal  :)

I also wanted to thank you for your comment and your vote to have the awards  :)  It should be a lot of fun!  Stay tuned!

Jan, you're not the only one....I've just made an entry on the same thing too.  It's so annoying.
Enjoy the rest of your evening.

I am receiving my alerts, Jan, but so many aren't.  I was having a problem with my whole e-mail system.  I was getting a message that AOL mail was temporarily unavailable off and on for most of today so I didn't even have a little mailbox to look at.  Of course this all happened while I was midstream in sending a tag to someone.  I know you must miss Charlotte.  Teens bring a certain amount of energy to a household that seems so sorely missed.  xx  Chris

lindachapmanuk said...

aw as if we would send you to coventry! lol I bet you really miss Charlotte at the monent, it's quiet when they go home....... I watched 'Goodnight Mr Tom' AGAIN and still sat there all teary, what a lovely film that is! Linda xx

I am no longer receiving alerts either... I'm making my rounds through everyone's journals just to be sure I can comment on any entries they may or may not have left. Hopefully AOL will get it together ASAP.

Hope you're having a great weekend!

Aah! Are you sitting there all po-faced?! I've had over a hundred alerts today! I know a lot of you out there are saying you've had none but I've been wishing that people would stop posting so I can catch up! Jeannette xx

aniracj said...

Plenty of journal alerts Jan, but no comment ones.....makes you feel unwanted, LOL!  We saw a part of Goodnight Mister Tom, but a gig beckoned so could not watch it all.....we have it on video though, always makes me cry as well but it is so lovely to watch and a credit to John Thaw.

jmoqueen said...

I'm just going by people's journals as I haven't received any alerts today and people have commented on mine but I've not received them either - very odd!!  Glad it's not just me ;-)  Glad Charlotte had a good time xx

Congratulations on your 1 year anniversary Jan! Judging by the number of comments, I don't think you've been deserted!

I've haven't had any Alerts either Jan. AOL must be playing silly beggars again! I like the drama 'Goodnight Mr. Tom' with the late John Thaw. I don't know how many times I've seen it, but I always enjoy it.

Have a good week!
Leigh :-)

I have no alerts either. I didn't have my computer set up and the only way I am able to respond to this entry is from an older one I found before alerts were shut off.
Grrrr ...

Hello.     My name is Lilian.    I have just come across your site by chance and found it to be so relaxed I shall be visiting  again soon.

jacksj989 said...

I can see from the 'comments box' that there are lots of readers of your journals, I am pleased that they were there for you.

By for now,

John.
