Technical Hitches

Hello and happy December everyone!

Sorry I have been away for so begin with I was just busy, but since then I have been having more than a few technical problems. Since publishing my email address on my blog I seem to have picked up some kind of virus. Every time I logged into my emails, I would find emails sent to myself and friends, supposedly from my email address with all sorts of nonsense in them, or failed delivery reports for emails I have not sent. Then my account has been blocked entirely, and I have had to go through a lengthy process to get it back again. On top of that, emails I have sent have not arrived, and I have not received emails I know I have been sent. So it looks very much like I am going to have to close my email account altogether, which is a real shame. Partly because it was lovely to have a way to contact my lovely readers beyond the comments function, but also because it was my first email address in my married name...the '07' part was for the fact I got married in 2007 and the rest was my married name.

I have been also having problems with blogger, I suspect because it is linked to that email address. So overall, things have, alas, been somewhat fraught here for me. I have had an awful lot of spam comments to trawl through and delete too. They nearly always seem to be in response to my post on marzipan acorns, which is odd. Ho hum.

So I am left with a parcel for the lovely Moey, which I cannot post because I cannot get into the email with her address...any ideas Moey? Perhaps you could leave it for me in a comment, which I will not publish! And I know that there are others of you who have emailed me, but alas, I am quite unable to read or respond.

I feel like I have a little dark cloud over my head, as far as technology goes.

But it is not all doom and gloom, and I hope to be back posting regularly soon, with some tales of my December adventures.

Love to you all,

Mimi xxx

Thank goodness you're back! I was getting worried about you, glad to know that it was only computer problems at the root of it. You must have some awesome Christmas posts to write? I hope??? Why don't you open a gmail email account, I have one posted on my blog and haven't had any issues with it.

I love pressies, especially surprises!
