exciting news.... I got a new laptop.
well its actually a notebook according to the box. Its an Asus, and I'm quite pleased with it so far.
Its windows 8 so there is a challenge :) but seeing that my old laptop takes over 10 mins to turn on and connect to the Internet and at least that to shut down... plus it used to tell me scripts where running and it would just freeze up for no reason for hours.
In the last couple of hours I have turned this on, started it up etc and been surfing the net i realise how much I had been putting up with... its SOOO fast!!
saved all my photos onto my external hard drive, my music etc so stay tuned for my next post.
hoping for good weather in the morning to go for a ride into the local hills. got Mt Buller in 3 weeks!!
why did I wait so long to get a new laptop? money of course lol..... and I got an incredible deal... the froglet also bought herself a new smaller notebook to take to uni.. shes going to pick hers up tomorrow. wonder if windows 8 will disturb her lol

gumvalleypatchwork.typepad.com a few years ago and made for my mum. Obviously this isn't the fabric or design but I was able to convert it without much trouble to utilise the fabrics.
dontlooknow.typepad.com who seems to have fallen off the Internet... I hope that she is well and just taking a break from the pressures of blogging etc.
Was a busy weekend with the noisy one going to a party and dressed up as Abby from NCIS, she had to dye her hair black and I used a sharpie to give her tattoos... something is wrong with my photo card and it wont download my photos eeekkkk! hope that I can get them onto the pc as she looked great.

So many different colours....
This is an updated photo of the war wound. Ive decided its like a carpet burn... I think my poor beast got more damage than me, I broke my drink bottle cage... its got good old gaffer tape holding it together till I buy a new one.... chipped a hunk of paint off and the end of my left hood (for non cyclists its the bit that has the gear levers on). Might seem trivial but imagine your sewing machine with hunks out of it!!

|Today's post is brought to you by the letters T and W.|
|these aren't my actual wheels (wishful thinking there!) But they give you an idea of my wheels|
This is however an actual picture of my elbow that took the brunt of my fall today. could have been much worse, my bestie who fell a few weeks ago is still nursing a sore arm, but is riding with me still. (waiting for someone to tell us that perhaps we shouldn't ride together any more lol)
|So here is my garmin... shows you the time I started, how long we rode for and the distance. Was a nice ride and we missed most of the heat (36 degrees here today)|
|So the quilt for the boyfriend continues... strips are being sewn together, and four patches are now ready to have the next part sewn to them.|
Have you ever given a handmade gift to someone and realised that they have no idea how much time and effort can go into something specially made?

|I have started to make the froglets boyfriend a quilt for his 21st birthday. I found at my guild meeting a Bali pop that seemed just perfect. the froglet was rather delighted with my choice.|
I hope that you all had a great Australia day... I just popped out the front of my house to watch the local councils fireworks, lucky I don't have to travel to get a good view!
