I'm full of a cold... and sleeping in.

Come back later.

Short and to the point eh? lol

Well it's 10.30 am and I simply cannot stay in bed any longer.  I'm bored.  I've got shit to do.
And thanks to Paracetemol, I feel a bit better. Actually, I feel much better than I did last night.
Maybe I'm going to come right real quick?

ABOVE:  Being bored in bed.

So now I'm up and have put a load of washing on.  And am about to get myself something to eat...BRUNCH.
Not sure what to have yet, but it will be WARM, cos it's quite cold outta bed.

ABOVE:  Marley is mad at me, because I won't throw her toy for her to fetch.  I don't want to be doing that a THOUSAND times today.  She just doesn't give up wanting it to be thrown for her,  UNLESS I refuse to do it in the first place.

Then I get the stink eye.  Or two.

2.15 pm:  I've had lunch, done the washing, played with the dogs, and that's about all!
Got dinner sorted for the family as I hope to go to Card night tonight.
I'm feeling much better.  My knee is groaning a bit though... so probably no walk tomorrow.  Maybe on Thursday or Friday.

I don't have any energy right now, so am just going to blob out for another hour or so.  So, nothing happening around here!

Feeling pretty proud of myself!  On this computer, the PC all-in-one, in my pictures there's a gaping big hole.  NO photos from 2016!
I'm thinking, where the hell are they all?
Then I remembered.  I'd been using my laptop during that year.  So I go down, open it up and boom!  There they all are!

So I get my OLD external hard drive, and have a go at downloading all the photos, so I can transfer them to my PC.

And it worked!  Well... it's still downloading, but it's working!
I did ring and talk to Steve, once it was downloading, cos I wasn't sure I had done it right... what if it was just copying all 44,000 photos back onto the computer?  AS in, doubling up all of them?

But nope, I had done it right!  So. Feeling very happy with myself.

The next step will be to get them to download from the external hard drive to my PC.  Hopefully that will go without a hitch either. 

Yaaaa.... lots happened in 2016 and it will be good to have those photos saved (backed up) as well.

Stew had a quiet evening.  Brylee was at work.  Griffin was watching his girlfriend dance in a school production, and I was out at Card night with a few girlfriends!

I had a lovely evening, I always do at card night!  I just love playing cards, and the company is always enjoyable.

My friend Sue T had been on a winning streak, but tonight....she was the loser.

ABOVE: Trying to get a decent photo of her tonight was a mission!  lol
It was just a bit of fun!  

And on that note... I'm off to watch Coronation Street.  Catch ya tomorrow.
