Sometimes I hate technology...

I was preparing to do a very interesting and hopefully insightful post today on my kids' kung fu competition which was on yesterday. Five hours worth of grappling, grunting, performing and the like. I sat for said five hours on a hard wooden bench, in a cold semi-renovated church, watching my little angels try and choke the living daylights out of their friends (all in the name of good sportsmanship, of course). I took over a hundred pictures on the ol' digital camera - action shots, trophy presentation shots etc etc. I have just managed to delete all but two from my camera. ARGHHHHHH!!!!!! I meticulously went through each picture, protected the ones I wanted to keep and then hit the 'delete all except protected images' button. And what happened?? I have no bloody idea, but they, aside from two of the DS, are all gone. Vanished into the ether, never to be seen again. I guess I will just have to wait until the next five hour stint on the cold wooden benches so I can take more. Technology can be wonderful - but sometimes it really sucks.

You crack me up every time I read your blogs Cristina.
Have you thought of writing a book?

Hey Fiona - lovley to 'see' you here! Glad you enjoy the blog. I have thought of a book (in the very distant past) but gave it up as a bad idea - too long! I prefer to keep things short and sweet! It was great to see you last week - let's make sure it's not so long between visits next time!

I agree completely with technology issues. I won't delete anything until I have backups to my backups. Our digital stuffed up yesterday. Went to a lunch with friends & I was determined to get a family photo. Charged up the batteries, Damon got it all organised & when we got there - Pft! Nothing. Nada thing. We have no idea why. Bah humbug!

On an aside did get family pictures taken on one of the other cameras, so when I get them emailed over will forward one on. You can see how Aiden is essentially my height now :o (with a burgeoning Adams apple *gulp*).

YOU feel old! It makes the reality of me turning 37 scary. Luckily I only catch glimpses of it - like seeing him sideways as he sits at the computer (not doing his homework of course *lol*).

It's only just starting....but starting none the less. *GULP*

Will pass on the hug - he thinks it's so cool that Liam picked the 23rd *rolls eyes* :)
