My Guilty Secret

07:47 Karen 20 Comments

Yesterday was an amazing day spent with two friends chatting and crafting, I have to admit that there was more chatting than crafting overall!  I had taken a photo of my laptop to scrap as my August precious and knew I wanted to write a letter to my laptop once I got back home.  Yes my laptop is precious to me and an essential part of my daily/weekly life as I use it to do all the admin/paperwork for David's business but more than that I realised that it is a lifeline.  Without my laptop and the internet I would not have spent the day yesterday with two lovely ladies.  I met them as a result of starting my crop which without the internet would never have gotten off the ground.

Without my laptop and the internet I would never have been able to make this page as all the supplies were purchased on line and without my laptop and the internet I would not be writing this blog post as part of Sian's Storytelling Sunday.  It is my craft tool of choice as without it I would never be able to use my beloved Silhouette or print photos.  


Dear Laptop

We have been together for a number of years now and I just wanted to let you know how much you mean to me!  We share all my secrets, you know my passwords and just how much time I spend on Pinterest or Google.  The times when you get ill and have to go away I am lost without you and count the hours until your return.  You are always so helpful when I am doing the paperwork for David.  I cannot imagine life without you now as we spend way too much time together.  We watch films and surf the net looking for things that make us smile or even cry.  You hold so many of my precious  memories in the form of photographs and without you it wouldn’t be as much fun keeping in touch with Gracia when she is away in Newcastle.  Our little skyping sessions are a life saver, if not for  you I wouldn’t have met any on-line friends and then turned that friendship into a real life friendship.  You help me to keep up to date with what is going on in their lives through blogs, facebook and Instagram and I just don’t know how I would cope without being able to email all the time.

I know our time together is limited as you are getting older and slower and we both get frustrated by your inability to keep an internet connection going but I hope that we will make the most of our remaining days together and that we will be just as happy as we’ve always been.

Much love

So although I am guilty about the amount of time I spend playing around on my laptop I would be lost without it.  

Why don't you pop on over to Sian's blog to read about other people's August Precious and they may be revealing their guilty secrets too!

Reasons to be cheerful:

1.  A sublime day spent with lovely friends even though we desperately missed Eileen.

2.  The miracle of the internet (even though ours is very flaky as we live out in the sticks).

3. The prospect of a little more crafting this afternoon.
