Traumas R us is all I can say.
Sunday, I switched my pc on to hear only what I can describe as the mouse runing around inside sharpening his claws on a cheese grater! Not good at all. Various messages kept appearing and crashing the computer down every few moments so I gave up and had a drink instead!
Monday morning saw me crying down the phone pleading for the local IT company to do something, anything just fix me up. Must have sounded very convincing cos a very nice man came round in the afternoon to have a look. 'Not good ' he said. Your hard drive is knackered, the ball bearings have gone.
(You know they always say a dying person sees their life flash in front of them, well I'm telling you my hard drive flashed before me!! Over 10yrs of genealogy, pdf files, photos, downloads,
templates, exel files , you name it , it was flashing. So much so I thought I was having a migraine attack and would need to lie down in a dark room.)
By this time I'm practically on my knees pleading 'Can you do anything?'
The very nice man said he could take the hard drive away and try to clone it onto a new hard drive but this was not a guarentee fix. At the worst I would loose my files but he could re install all of the programes for me. So off went my hard drive and I went off to drink my sorrows in a bottle of wine with The Doc.
24 nail biting hrs later a phone call confirmed that the cloning had worked and he could try to install back into pc. As you can see it did work and I'm now back fighting fit with brand new memory space and loads more Gs.
Whilst all that was going yesterday' Muver 'phoned on her new mobile. (We have just recently managed to get her to have a large button mobile to use and this is now an on going saga of mishaps and funnies.) This time it was ' Did you just phone me?'
'No Mum I'm like busy having a nervous breakdown why?
'Well someone did and hung up and it didn't show who'. Also a Graham phoned 3 times but didn't leave a message. Do you know who Graham is?
'Erm! No Mum I don't know who Graham is.' Sudden thought. No it wouldn't be, couldn't be could it, he wouldn't know her number would he? Why would "Graham Norton "be ringing my Muver!!!!!!!
Watch out for more tales of life with muver and a mobile phone coming your way soon.
