Want and Need situation!!!

A little want and need situation arose yesterday which has left me stressed today!! Let me explain.
I have been an apple mac user for many years and 18 months ago my DS bought me a super duper iMac which is the bees knees so I really don't NEED another computer.... but
I have been WANTING a laptop for some time so that I can keep up with all that is going on without having to shut myself away in my craft room. I didn't want to revert back to a PC and mac laptops are far to expensive for me to warrant buying one .
The company I work for sell all laptops onto staff when the 3 year leases are up, Geneen in marketing has a mac laptop one of the few that are used in our company and it was coming up for renewal and it was being sold on at a very good price. I was hoping Geneen would want to buy it because first option is always given to the user, but she didn't want it so it was mine if I decided to go ahead.
Well never being one to pass up a bargain I went for it!!!
Now normally it is just a case of putting a firewire cable from one mac to the other and transferring all the info which is what I did this afternoon but for some reason it only transferred some of the info onto the laptop.
I am OK when everything goes to plan with this computer stuff but when it goes "tits up" as they say then that's me done!!!
Luckily I have a very good friend who is an apple mac expert and he is going to sort it out for me tomorrow, but in the meantime this has completely killed my Mo Jo!!!!. I did make one card today but I am really not sure about it!!!
Thanks for listening to my tale of woe and if you have made it to the end well done I would have given up half way through LOL

Oh, Suzanne, I feel your pain!! I also do great with a computer as long as there aren't any problems! But, let things start to go wrong and I just freak! Luckily, my DH is good at sorting out the problems.

Hope you get all the problems fixed soon and can enjoy it fully. I so understand about the laptop vs. PC. I love my laptop because it goes all over the house with me. Like you, I don't want to be tied down to the computer stuck in a room somewhere.

Deb said...

Very pretty card Sue, I hope you get your laptop sorted out tomorrow, it is frustrating isn't it?

Michelle said...

Sorry to hear of your laptop trouble. I have pretty much full control of my PC meaning no-one else hardly ever uses it but I would still like a laptop! Hope you get it all sorted soon. I think your card is very pretty.
I love the colour and great layout. Tilda on the embossed scalloped pabel looks so effective. Apart from your laptop I hope you have having a nice weekend! :0)

Really cute Tilda Card! Love how you scalloped the cuttlebug embossed paper!

Hope you get the computer problems fixed, and those nasty little green men that live in all of our computers didn't take you mojo for too long!

Good luck with your laptop Sue....I wouldn't be without mine. In fact, I'm sat in front of the TV now as I'm typing this!!

Maureen said...

However - I am so glad you were able to get a laptop - and you know through all the problems it will finally settle down and you will be very happy - I can feel it in my bones!! by the way - too cute card for no mojo!!

Kristine said...

Oh, very cute!! I KNOW!! My computer is on the fritz too. I've been wanting a laptop too! Will have to save up, old puter will haveta do :(

I so know what you mean about computers and techie stuff. I desperately want to do a new header for my blog. It seems easy enough but the fear of it going 'tits up' (to use use your technical term) puts me off. Hope everything is sorted with your Mac.
