This week I'm grateful for..... Scheduled Posts!

On Friday morning last week, I was due to  post up my block as part of Jane's Desperate Housewife's Quilt.  Luckily due to having to coordinate with Jane for links etc, the post had to be scheduled ahead of time.

Very good thing because Friday morning I woke up and turned my computer on to make sure the post had gone ahead as planned..... and my laptop had gone to the great LAN party in the sky.  He'd been acting a bit sick all week but Friday I was just unable to get him to turn on properly.

I've also been without my recently inherited netbook (from my hubby) because we're waiting on a new power cable which has been ordered.  My lovely hubby left his new tablet at home for me that day so I could make some contact with the outside world, but it just wasn't the same.

I'm also grateful that we're in a financial position which allowed me to go shopping on Saturday and buy a new laptop which was better than my old one.  I'd been looking for an excuse to upgrade but really couldn't justify it.  Had my laptop heard me and helped my cause?  I'll never know.

So only two days without a computer and now I'm getting used to a bigger (and higher resolution) screen and a wizz-bang new operating system (Windows7).  There's lots in there to be grateful for!

What are you grateful for this week?  Join in the fun over at Maxabella Loves
