Talk About Black Monday or is it Black Wednesday

Good Afternoon Ladies, sorry Ive not posted anything now for a couple of days but I thought that I would post a photo of the two grandsons that we are of to pick up on Friday from Norfolk, to bring back here for a weeks holiday, they are on the left Daniel and on the right Oliver, they are now 10 and 9 respectively. They are the two sons of my youngest daughter Clare who unfortunately suffers with MS, shes very determined not to allow it to get her down, and regularly works part time in the local charity shop, and also edits and prints the MS news for her local area. But as I dont get to see my grandsons very often we now have them to stay for a week in their summer holidays, not only to be able to get to see them properly but also to help their mum and dad have a break from the responsibility of not only keeping them occupied through the holidays but also a break for them both.
Ive also got some other not so good news, my desktop computers systems harddrive gave up the ghost this morning, (remember last week it was a new Monitor) so hubby has been to Bristol today to buy me a brand new one, but of course we now have to completely rebuild it, and put on all my programes that I regularly use plus hopefully keep your fingers crossed those with licence keys, that they work first time and I dont have to ring up the companies to get them to unlock them for me, which I hate with the Cricut one.
Ive decided now to call my desktop computer Black Widow as she doesnt deserve to be called Cherish, which I have called all my desktops in the past.
Well I think thats all the news for today, I will try and post a photo of my second set of grandchildren in a weeks time when we are due to pick them up from Towcester on the 1st August, they are also coming for a weeks holiday, I should warn you that Im not going to be able to visit you and leave comments as I wont have access to a desktop only my laptop and notepad so its going to be a bit difficult to write long sentences on the them, so dont think Ive forgotten you I will be back as soon as I can probably in 3 weeks time.
I will be posting my next DT card on the 2nd of August as its already scheduled, so you will find that if you pop by then.
Take care and enjoy your time with your families, with love and hugs Shirleyxxxxxxx

I am sure you and your grandson will have a wonderful time. Computers are horrible unreliable things, don't let them get you down.
