The start of today was not quite what I would have wished for..an other family disaster....we do those really well and often, lol!!
Charlotte rang with some bad news, her work on the computer at university had become corrupt and when she saved her work this morning it corrupted her pen drive...aaaaah!!!
She has two projects with a deadline of Monday and all the work she was doing on them was on the university computers or...yes, you got it... on her pen drive. Normally it's only when they are completed that she loads them onto her own hard drive for permanent storage.
She works so hard. like this morning with a 6.00am study start, that I really felt angry with the university too, as it appears their backups don't cover the files that students save to their own sections...is that stupid or what? They state that they have a new policy and in it they are trying to discourage students from using their personal storage folders on the university system!!! What is that about?
That sounds like they are discouraging students working on university computers at all.
So till Monday her life will be manic, well a bit more manic than usual..and no doubt so will ours!! Lilly will be taken care of by dad tomorrow and by her aunt on Friday, all in her own home to minimise any disruption to her routine. Come Friday evening she will be grandma's girl for the weekend!! So this weekend is allocated for the greater good...it's drop everything and start bailing out the boat, lol!! But isn't that what families are all about?
And it gets better...tomorrow I have a treat....it's time for my annual flu jab...some treat!! But I suppose it's better than getting the real thing, lol!!
OK, for those of you who wanted to see "the nails", here's the photo I took yesterday. I have just transferred it from my camera and later I will do a layout to save as a reminder of Emma's first assessment.
She really had a challenge with my work worn hands!! Note, I even have a burnt index finger...I told you this girl had her work cut out for her!! These hands have hard usage and are total strangers to rubber gloves!! My nails have daily challenges like being used as tools to get in the rim of things, household detergents etc...come to think about it perhaps I should have a be kind to hands week!!
Now for the last part of Hickory Dickory Dock!! It's the second part of the elements and that will complete the kit.

Oops..I forgot the clock!! I have corrected the download now, sorry about that.
I hope you've enjoyed collecting the kit!
Now for a laugh...I just rolled about when I saw this fantastic layout from Su..it really made me laugh. Not that I was heartless..but I could just imagine this little guy thinking he was in hamster heaven..and look at that face...is he saying sorry or is it a tummy ache? A wonderful layout with great journaling!! I love how you used the papers and tags Su...a fantastic page!! Thanks for sharing it and making me smile..I hope Gims has made a full recovery!!
