Computers, Short Stories and Wedding

I've had a frustrating and worrying week with my computer after getting involved in a nasty antivirus scam - it's now being fixed by the wonderful local guy who is a whizz with computers. I bought my business XP model from him a few years ago.  I'm using husband's now and then, so I'm not online as much as usual, and it's been quite liberating! I suspected I was now online far too much, at the expense of writing and organising work, and now I know it was true. However, I'm equally sure I'll be back to normal once I have my own machine again!

Today, the very kind Lindsay Townsend invited me to talk about my recent experiment of putting some short stories on to Amazon kindle. If anyone wants to read it, you can find the piece at Lindsay's Romantics.

And now I'm really looking forward to my dear son's wedding on Friday. He's getting married on one of our small Scottish islands and will be in full kilt outfit. It's a small wedding which suits us all just fine! I'll post some photos on the blog next week.

Good luck with the computer, Rosemary, but even better luck with the wedding! Have a wonderful day.

PS Are you wearing a hat?

Teresa Ashby said...

Hope the computer is sorted out soon, Rosemary - you have all my sympathy on that!

The wedding sounds wonderful and I'd like to know if you're wearing a hat too!

Rosemary Gemmell said...

Hi Frances - thank you. Just back from buying the final few bits and pieces - and no, not a hat but I am wearing a hair band adornment thing. It's a small wedding and tiny church so hats would be a bit OTT!

Hi Teresa - thanks for your good wishes too! See above re hat... Hopefully the photos will show off the hair thing!

Hope your computer woes are soon resolved Rosemary.
Have a great time at the wedding too- and best wishes to your son and future daughter-in-law.
Looking forward to seeing a picture of you and the fascinator you've chosen to wear.

It's a good job Trinny and Suzanna don't read this blog (or maybe they do) - a 'hair band thing' indeed!!! Kilts look always look great in wedding photos. Have a lovely day, Rosemary.

Hello Carol - thanks a lot for your comment!

Hi Betty - nice to hear from you. Couldn't think how to describe it!

The online life can interfere with novel and story writing, for sure!

Congratulations on your son's wedding and I'm looking forward to the pictures! :-)
