Spring cleaning in Summer

I did a whole spring clean of my desk and PC this weekend! I did back ups the whole of Sat! WOOHOOOOOOOOOOOOO- GO ME- lol. Deleted old programs, did a de-frag, disc clean and put on a new anti Virus! Yup- so I'm ready for the year now! And Oh goodness, hubby and I had a little *tiff* on Sunday afternoon because he tried to make my life easier and install a faster router on Sat- lol, but it didn't show up so he decided to take it out and leave it to the professionals to install ( uhum- it has been sitting here for nearly 6 months already- lol)- but not his fault on that one;-),

And Sunday being the boys GOLF morning I was sooo keen to get stuck in - HAH!- every time I logged on - the line dropped after 30 secs! So I reset the router AGAIN and get the connection- 30 seconds- GONE! ARRRGHHH- after our net problems this week I was really getting frustrated.

So I left it and did some doodling instead- lol. But of COURSE when he walked in the first thing I said was- WHAT did you change or do to the connections-? OOOOOOOPSSSS- yeah, maybe I should have let him put his clubs down first huh??- hahahaha

NOTHING!!! was the answer- it's the line again!!

But if it was the line ,it wouldn't connect and have a *specified* drop time on EVERY connection(I have three I use)! mmmmm- you seeeing where this was going right?- lol

After a few more heated words, My dearest hubby fiddles behind me (at his desk) and just say's- is it stable now??-

UHUM- YES!! WOOHOOOO, what was it??

Oh I must take my hat off to my hubby- he is soooo much better at apologising than me- hee hee, he was already saying sorry before he got up from under his desk ;-)

Sorry sorry sorry!I changed the ports and just put the old one back where it was before-

AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH-- I have Internet AGAIN- lol - Men! stubborn old farts aren't they. ( yeah and I'm not that bad myself either)

Love you Waynie- hee hee.

I have some new goodies in the store- ( see what happens when you have no Internet connection for a few days- hahahahaha)

These are ALL Commercial Use ok and 25% OFF at the moment





These are all LARGE PNG files @ 300 ppi and can be resized with ease and recoloured for ANY styled kit.


These I made because I was looking for something *specific* and couldn't find it-lol.

Those layouts are STUNNING! Soo glad Wayne got the internet wires fixed right! They are funny, aren't they? My sweetie, does my cd burning for me (i HAVE to learn how to do it myself!!) and TWICE i have asked for him to give each designer folder its own cd so i can add to it, at a later time! And still he fits what he can on each cd and just gets the job done, not thinking about or trying to do it my way! HARUMPPPH!! He asked if he had some more burning to do yesterday and i said yes then he asked if i went thru the cds to make sure everything copied (before i move stuff from c drive to f drive). i told him it was a mess and hard to go through since these folders and those folders were copied and i guess the others in between are on another cd but was too hard to try keeping track of it so i just ASSUMED everything got copied ok and moved it... i went on with how i appreciate him doing this but HE doesnt have to ever refer to these cds again, but I DO and it's not gonna be easy to find anything the way he is doing it.... needless to say, nothing got burned last night!! hehehe oh well! maybe they will learn! DOUBTFUL but i know we LOVE them anyways! hahaha
Thanks so very much for ALL that you share, Kim!! big HUGS! hope you have a MARVELOUS Monday! :D

Maybe is it just me, if so, I'm not gonna explain what I was thining about your man's way of apologising, when reading "he is soooo much better at apologising than me- hee hee, he was already saying sorry before he got up from under his desk"

Can you come over to my house now and do mine with me? I'm fearfully behind in organizing. I have a whole ehd waiting to be filled. Begging to be filled. Sigh.

So when IS the router getting done? Appointment made? At least he tried. Thats gotta count for something haha!

GOOD goodies, my friend. I can see a bazillion uses for these!

all of the layouts are winners, and I'm especially drawn to the doggie one by Hutchie, that would make a terrific wall poster y'know?

Well, off I go into the ethernet and cyberspace to do my thing! I'll be back to check on your antics.

My Mr. is good at apologies too.

Beautiful Hearts. Thank You

Well I was glad to see that computer psrts have to 'age like fine wine' at your house also. Even though my hubby made his living maintaining computers at NASA, he is terrible when he has to work on one with Windows on it. His answer to most things is "WHAT did you do this time?" and the second thing is you have to reformat.

Summer would be so nice right now, today it was 80 and tonight it is supposed to be in the low 40's or mid 30's. I am ready for the re-birth of Spring and your little stone hearts looked like Spring to me. SO thank you for sharing.

Michelle said...

Lovely layouts!! What talented ladies you have! Thank you for the cute little hearts now what to use them on.

I missed these when they were up, and waited a while, then looked in your shop. I checked again today, but couldn't locate them. Will you be putting them in the shop (please, please, please!!!)? They are so beautiful, and I like the iridescent quality they have. Thank you!
