Just a little post today to say that my blogging life has been rather stressful. Firstly, last week, my trusty old Apple Mac blew up. I didn’t use any backup and although my dear son George has tried to retrieve what he can, much has been lost.
I rely on this computer to upload photos I have taken with my iPhone, via the charger, via Dropbox, that I then upload again on to my blog. So for the time being the only way I can upload new pictures is to send them to my husband, open his email, save the picture to his computer, then upload it to the blog. Time consuming and irritatating. So for a few days I will not be able to use new photographs (except the one of Kit, below).
I have ordered a new Mac which will arrive in a few days. In the meantime I am trying to blog via my dear husband’s computer, but it is not the same.
Then, supported by my wonderful step-son Ben, I have been trying to change the name of my blog and put the logo up there. This has gone quite well but there are inevitably teething problems (I am with you there Kit!)
I have “cached” the old Fit and Flare which means it is no longer available. We are now on Fabrickated.com full time. There are still a few things Ben and I need to do, so if things go a bit squiffy, that is the reason.
One thing that has happened is that a few drafts have been published without me meaning to publish them. This is annoying and I have now trashed them. But I will be bringing them back when they are finished, one day at a time.
The other annoying thing that happened, now fixed, thank God, was that the world was seeing my new look website and I couldn’t access it myself. Except on my phone. But not on the phone in my house, due to server/router problems. So I had to go out to use it. Worked fine on the bus, and on the stairs outside Esme’s flat. But not the most condusive places to write blogs. I find it impossible to write or edit on a small phone. So I was out of control for around 48 hours, which nearly drove me insane.
Finally, today, Saturday, the router is sorted. I still don’t have my own computer, but I will have next week. I apologise for the inturpution of service, especially to Elena who has been on and off the blog twice now, and I have still to edit her guest blog and get it signed off. Thank you for your patience. The regular daily blogs will be resumed shortly.
Thank you Ben. Thank you Nick. Thank you George. Thank you everyone who reads this blog, and I really appreciate your comments and feedback.
Love Kate. Fabrickated.
