After such a lovely weekend, I was in the foulest of foul moods this morning. The Reason? Comet - the electrical retailer!
After our hotel stay (where I sufficiently embarassed David by asking the waiters to sing Happy Birthday whilst bringing out a "chocolate orange" cake), we popped to Comet to pur-chase an external Hard Drive for my laptop. David quite rightly was getting a bit worried that I hadn't backed up my memory and if something corrupted my memory, precious pictures and documents would be lost forever. My question is, do you need to back up the back up, and how long could this quandry carry on for?
So, with hard drive safely tucked under arm, we travelled the 15 miles home only to find that the USB cable and instructions were missing. They had displayed an empty box, and obviously only filled the box with the hard drive and power cable. I wasn't very happy, especially when I tired to phone them and found that the only number availabe was a central number, with no chance of being able to get through to the store. So, I travelled the 30 mile round trip, just to collect a USB cable and instruction book. It has definitely taught me a lesson, I will always check all components are included before setting off home next time!
Tonight therefore I will be saving all my documents etc to the hard drive, what fun!
Back tomorrow with a project.
Love, Clare x
