Ok, firstly I have to tell you that I'm really peeved with myself..... I havn't paid attention to my darling husband. He is always banging on about backing up our data on our computers. Wish I'd paid more attention. Because last week, my old brick of a laptop died. I thought I was reasonably safe. I thought I was only going to be missing maybe a couple of months worth of data and photos, but upon deeper investigation, it's worse than I thought. Damn! So I now have the option of trying to get someone to retrieve the data from the old hard drive. At around $200, I might just have to take the plunge and hope some of my photos can be saved. So lesson number one people...... BACK UP YOUR DATA REGULARLY!
On the bright side, I have a new laptop. It's a black shiny thing with a nice big screen. There's more grunt under the hood than my old one. It's like learning to drive a new car. Some of the software on this thing is much newer than the old. So it all looks a little different.
Ok, what have we been up to lately? We're enjoying showing Melbourne off to our new family. So our first excursion was to Chapel Street in South Yarra. It's a street known for it's fashionable shops and trendy cafes.
This is Chapel Str. It runs for about 2 kms. There's a fashionable end and then there's the grungy end. Op shops and the Wesley Mission. Character overload in this street.
