Fed up

Sam is naughty - oh yes he is!!!  Naughty, naughty Sam - had me really worried - for a whole hour I was beside myself with worry - he was supposed to come straight home from school like he always does - it got to 3.30 and I thought hmm if sam had got a lift he would be home by now. It got to 3.50 - now Im really worried as if he had walked or got the bus he would be home by now.  Then I saw the neighbours kids were all home - asked them had they seen Sam? Nope!!!! So I got in the car and drove around like a mad thing trying to find him - every street seemed so empty! I got to the school - no Sam.  So all I could do was drive home again - still no Sam!!  I really felt sick by that time - then the phone rang - thank god it was Sam! He says - Mummy I am at Matt's can you pick me up - well I hit the roof!!!  He said that Matt's Mum's car broke down so they had to walk home and he walked to Matt's - he forgot to come home - can you believe that!!!!  I went mental and drove up to get him and went mental again - he shouldnt rely on Matt's mum anyway!! GRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR KIDS!!!!!!! I really didnt need that today.

My computer has gone wrong - my lovely HP laptop - the one with the film on it - I had to edit the film again and make a new DVD - well now after hours of re-editing the laptop decides it cant burn discs or read the disc drive anymore - I need to get it onto the Mac at college - the apple wont read the files either - I am now getting stressed about it!! The multi-media guys are trying their best to help me - but they are busy with their own shows - I might have to put it on the apple at college and re-edit which will take days in a program called final cut which I know nothing about! This is a nightmare - crikey just when I thought things were coming together - if they let me show it on my laptop then I wouldnt have a problem!!! Im sure it will be sorted it just feels like it wont and its under two weeks to go now and we have got to paint the gallery yet!!!!!

John's birthday tomorrow and his present hasnt arrived - well part of it has the other part hasnt - really annoying as I ordered him Series 1 of Lost and Series 2 and Series 2 arrived and Series 1 hasnt so he probably thinks why she bought me just Series 2!!!! Its probably Lost in the post - ha ha my attempt at being funny!!!

Oh bother!

Oh, I well remember how it feels.............driving round the streets like a lunatic with your heart banging in your chest!  My imagination would be in overdrive and when I finally found him, well I didn't know whether to shout or just hug!  Eileenx

That is so typical when you order something and only 1 turns up.  That happened with my mates and their xmas pressies to each other a few years ago.  Hope John has a great birthday though xx  Naughty Sam grrrrrrrrrrr @ him.  Don't panic about your laptop until you know what the worst secenario is.  It probably won't be as bad as you think xx
