  1. I’m taking my laptop to a computer menders today. On the phone, they were pessimistic about saving the laptop but cautiously optimistic about recovering data. We shall see. I backed up all my files (ie. my writing archive) about two months ago. Yes, I should do it every day.

  3. Sorry to hear that Andrew. I hope you get your data back and possibly the use of your laptop back as well. It is incredibly difficult when these things happen.

  5. That news of the flood cheered me up. I had a close call in Gloucestershire yesterday nearly get sucked up by a twister. Almost as bad for me is my white duvet that is proving hard to clean after spilling chocolate on it. Vanish is not as good as in the tv adverts.

  9. Sorry to hear about that Andrew.If it’s any consolation at all, the first time I read your blog I thought it said that your ‘lapdog’ had died.What a bizarre image that was.

  11. You’d think they could make them waterproof wouldn’t you, offices. Regaining stuff that you’d feared was lost is a very nice thing so hope that happens, and compensates for any large bills.
