Hi all!

Just jumping on to say I haven’t been here for a while.

Several things – DD had a nasty virus and went to get tested so we were on tenterhooks – thankfully she tested negative!!

Then I stood on a needle and was in horrid pain and couldn’t concentrate on anything – just lay in horizontally and whined – but now I’m able to get my shoe on. I’m sure it was Harry’s fault somehow, but I can’t work out how…

When I feebly asked for my Kindle so’s I could keep up to date, it would no longer service my e-mail without my password, and I didn’t know how to get it get it, because they were all on my laptop.

And then when I stoically managed my way down to my laptop I did something odd and totally lost all my KNIT folder from my My Makes folder. So I was scared to do anything in case my laptop had a virus, so Harry cleared me out of the way, and settled himself down to sort every thing, while on my side there was great wailing and gnashing of teeth. (I had somehow transposed KNITS into One Drive, which is the Cloud which I have never got around to using…)

Then I asked him to transfer my Kindle account into a more recent one (my late mum-in-law’s) and so after a bit he asked me for my Amazon password and was met with a bunny-in-the-headlights response and so on until I was in a fair way to losing both my e-mail accounts and great was the sorrow thereof, but finally I found quite accidentally the bit on my laptop that stored all my passwords, and we stopped sweating and he took a picture of it, and set to work.

Then, through my DC Thomson account I tried to order My Weekly , but after dutifully signing in, checking My Account etc. etc, at the Checkout it said I didn’t have an account ! I changed the password in case it was that, and the engine contacted me successfully through my e-mail, but same again!! Tried Contact Us four times, - no response !!

So I ordered it by phone, and the nice girl also said I didn’t have an account!
So I was still scared to do anything.

I thought everything would have settled down after all the confuffle above, so tried to order Animals and You, for Ro’s birthday, and again and ERROR message at the checkout. So got on the phone, and the nice girl tried to order it and then said: “Oh.”

They phoned me back and a business like female started and took me through everything, and got me to delete my history, and change my serve, and then finally in a quieter tone she asked me if I would mind giving her my password and she would sign in as me. So I said “Go for it,” and she did, and apparently everything was going swimmingly, and then she too said: “Oh.”

So she’s ordered it, with a Gift card, and has kicked the problem upstairs, where I think everyone will be saying “Oh” for a bit, and now I have cleared my head, and feel safe enough to check my e-mail and get on the Forum without losing it all again!

So here I am.
😊
