When It Rains It Sometimes Pours ..

Hello my dear friends,

you might have been wondering why I haven't been around lately it really seems that things just don't want to get better or me just yet.
Apart from a few of us not being well again over the new year, my poor laptop had accidently some liquid spilt onto it on New Years Day, to be exact the keyboard and now some of my keys aren't working properly or at all anymore ...

... so my hubby went out today and bought a wireless mini keyboard so I can at least work a little bit for the time being. I have to wait a week to see if things get better as if it dries out properly and if not my lilac baby has to go for repairs and will be gone for 3 weeks!! Oh dear!!!!

One good thing that has come out of this is that I have actually sat down and made some new creations today which I will share with you I  or two because I am still finishing the last one. I have also be able to work on other ideas and I have started another creation too.
So if you have a spare moment or two why not stop by here at Todolwen and see what I have been up to?!
I hope you are well my dear friends and life is treating you kind.
Have a peaceful and creative day,
Karen B. 


  1. Hello Karen,

    what a pitty with your laptop!
    Hope it will dry soon and will work well again.
    3 weeks without blogging would be very hard.

  2. Ouch - not a good start to the year... will keep my fingers crossed for a successful dry-out!

  3. Oh my....I think about this everyday, and have learned to keep my drinks up on a counter behind me because I have two cats that love to jump up on my work space to see me! Sometimes I forget, and do fear the same type of accident, but your post was certainly a super reminder. I do hope repair will be able to get your beautiful laptop up and running in new condition.

  4. Oh dear. Computers can be such babies! Glad you are able to connect a little bit, though. And happy that you were able to spend time creating!

  5. Oh dear-- I hate computer woes --- just drives me crazy. I sure hope it starts to work for you!!


  6. Wow 3 weeks would be a bit hard to take Karen! I had to have the power pack(inside the tower) replaced on the weekend but only lost the pooter for most of the day......$100 later!! Got my fingers crossed for yours. A good idea with the wireless keyboard tho.
    Nice that you were able to create somewhat and I hope that you're all getting over your unwellnesses! All the best of wishes to you and yours for 2014 and beyond. ♥
