Has anybody ever had a laptop not go after a long flight. Ours wont even power up, it wouldnt turn on properly in Shanghai but once we got to Korea there is no power at all. It was fully charged before we came. I can't plug it in until my universal adaptor arrives. I was just wondering if anybody else had experienced this and if so what did you do to rectify it.
Some time ago I made a youtube video about Nelson for when I was away. I had taken more photos that I wanted to add to it but they are all on my laptop.... Hopefu...Read more
Hope the birthday bash goes well. Will be thinking of you all! Tried to make a video for youtube on my camera but couldn't convert it or upload it as most of the programmes on this computer are in Korean. Never mind it wasn't very good anyway.
Some of you asked for photos so here goes:
to start with my old home (after we moved out), my dad's fat cows (they are "Belted Galloways" a heritage breed) and Tahunanui (my beach)
oh god I am so freaking out right now.
Everyone is lovely and helpful and my little place is lovely too but I think rural without an expat community was a mistake. Teaching the kids is hard and there is no direction to work a lesson plan on. I feel nervous sick all the time. Kahurangi doesn't even want to go outside.
I haven't got internet at home yet but when I do I will catch up with all your comments and blogs.
I know, I just have to suck it up.

Each blogger starts with ten random facts/habits about themselves.
Bloggers that are tagged need to write on their own blog about their ten things and post these rules.
At the end of your blog, you need to choose ten people to get tagged and list their names.
Don't forget to leave them a comment telling they're tagged, and to read your blog....Read more
I missed you all! Thanks for everyone who left kind comments and best wishes in my last blog, I really appreciate it. Rather than responding individually I thought I would spend that time catching up on some of my feeds, which is about 480 (better than what I thought), I wont get through them all but would like to go through some.
WELL..... I arrived in Korea (Busan) yesterday afternoon and was met by somebody from t...Read more
hello my friends
I'm currently in hiatus - I moved out on Monday and am staying with my 2nd mum, she only has dial up (oh the humanity) and a maximum of 10 internet hours a month (will somebody pleeease think of the children) so I will not be online much.
I will do my best to respond and read my feeds when I can. I will miss AnD but will see you all soon. My documents are being couriered back from Korea as we speak (the have emailed me the Fedex receipt, now I just have to fig...Read more

My mother has kindly donated to me a spare laptop of hers (don't ask) and it is Vista, I am trying to transfer my files from my current pc to the laptop and I can't gah gah gah.
There seems to be no way to move or copy files from the disk, although I did somehow manage to move the first disk - its painstaking because I don't have a dvd writer on my dvd so have to use the cd writer which doens't hold very much.
I have since read Vista is reknown for stalling when moving or copying files - is th...Read more
be honest now, hands up who fell for a April Fool's blog or prank.
I did - I fell for two, I wont mention which two as I'm aware it is still April Fool's Day in other parts of the world (it is Tuesday morning here and for some reason the AnD site wont accept NZ time). In NZ April Fool's ends at lunch time is this true of other places too?
All I can say to the two who got me you bloody buggery bollocking bastards! Read more
