WOYWW 67

First of all I have an apology to make to Kermit - I photographed him upside down last week, so here he is the right way up.


After 3 four hour round trips to Cardiff I finally have a functioning MacBook. So, here follows the saga of our buying the one MacBook with no Bluetooth that the Apple Store in Cardiff & their staff have ever encountered. We went to the Apple Store in Cardiff last Friday, happily came home, carried out all the installation updates & tried to connect mouse & keyboard. However, when my husband was unable to find the Bluetooth connection there was no alternative but to phone Apple the following morning, whereupon we were asked to bring it back.& leave the machine with the Apple technicians. A few hours after returning home to Brecon we were advised that something was so amiss with this particular machine that there was not even going to be any attempt made at rectifying it. I would be given a completely new machine & all the updates & setting up with mouse, keyboard & software would be carried out by the Apple technicians when we could next return to Cardiff. So, yesterday, after our third trip to Cardiff we came home with it all sorted. Everybody is trying to assure me that I do not have a propensity for attracting faulty computer machines, but my initial printer purchase for the Dell Microsoft system 18 months ago was also faulty.


Below is my workdesk. On the left the debris from Sunday's posting is still in the box for putting away & on the right on my glass mat is today's mail - a small Scor-Buddy so that I can follow the tutorials I see all over blogland & a paper piercing grid which I've wanted ever since I discovered the joys of paper piercing. So, this is my latest update for WOYWW

Ohh, I love your new goodies!! Where did you get the paper piercer grid? I need one. So glad they got everything squared away with your new Mac. Poor thing. I feel so bad that yours was faulty. :(

What amazing tools. Had to look up "scor-buddy" to know what I was looking for (grin). Just to let you know, I owned a PC with WIN98 on it for 11 years. Within days after it died, I went through THREE machines and two new monitors. And you thought YOU had bad luck. I just hope my post goes through, since blogger has placed a bulls eye on my back!

What a great craft space. And, because of your computer woes, I'm prepared to forgive you for being unbelievably tidy. I'm still trying to find the debris you mentioned!

I hope you'll be very happy with your Mac, despite the shakey start! I've had Macs for a good few years now and will never have anything else.

Your desk is so neat & tidy, well done!
