Apologies to All...

Well, now I'm really hopping mad - despite having published this Post earlier today, it has now been wiped out by F****** Blogger. Grrrr. And though I had already had a couple of comments from friends, these have been disappeared too. I'll try to remember it. Basically, the gist of it was that Blogger will not let me publish the photos I have been promising for so long. Can't work out what's wrong, so I will have to call in Dan the Computer Man to help. So sorry. And when I try to log on to other Bloggers and leave comments, my computer keeps just freezing. It won't do a thing, and I have to turn it off and try again. I'm very fed up with it and do apologise to all of you. I'm not neglecting you, but I just can't seem to make it work properly. I promise to fix it ASAP and get back to you all very soon.

The weather is lovely here - a real Indian Summer. When I walked by the sea today it wasn't sunny to begin with, but there wasn't a breath of wind and the sea was flat and calm, with the soft sheen of a blue pearl. As I turned for home, Worthing Pier was quite clear, and the sun came out and turned the sea a darker blue. Gorgeous. There was a lone fisherman on the shore, and a lone swimmer breaking the surface of the sea with regular strokes. Wish you were here..

Must go, as I have to collect Grandson from school this afternoon. He is coming back with me for the weekend, so that Daughter and the Boyfriend can have some time to themselves. At least that's my excuse. I'm sure we will have a lovely time together, just chillin'...

PS. Another apology - to Dusty Spider and to Maggie May - thank you for visiting and commenting earlier. I did get your comments, but Blogger has since whisked both you and my Post away into the ether - vanished without trace. So if you're reading this strangely altered post for the second time - and wondering where your comments have gone - sorry, but I haven't a clue!

Just came back to say that I have had problems with Blogger not allowing me to put photos in also. Some days worse than others. I also have had a problem leaving comments on some people's blog. It usually rights itself in a day or so. Hope this happens to you.
Hope this doesn't disappear into cyber space like my last one!

Your original post is still visible in Google Reader (it retains anything published) so if it happens again you could copy and paste it from there.

It also means that I had a feeling of deja vu when I read it twice!

Hope the problems with Blogger sort out, I have problems with line spacing!

I hear it's happening all around blogland - so don't feel bad.

I'll wait patiently for the pics. You could always email them to me through my blog. :0)

What is it about blogger? Maybe its performance is linked to the financial markets or some such...

Hi Maggie, thanks for your perserverance! Thankfully you're still in one piece, and very attractive it is too... I keep trying but will need Magic Dan, I know. M :-)

Hi Working Mum, and thanks for the tip - now how do I get to Google Reader? Not that I'm a complete dummy really. Sorry about the deja vu but didn't know what else to do on the spur of the moment. I have the line-spacing thing too - it just gets something into its mind and won't budge. Sounds just like Daughter! M :-)

Hi aims, oh patient one! That's a brilliant idea, I'll give it a try.

Hi Dotterel, what a novel thought! It could be just that - or something similar. Whatever it is, I'm not winning, and it seems lots of other Bloggers are having an equal amount of fun too... M :-)

I can't add anything useful about technology, not remotely my skill set. I still can't do the click on the word thingy...

It must have been fantastic to be at the seaside this weekend, I would love to live on the coast

How frustrating for you. Thanks for all your recent comments on my blog - builder bloke is good thank you very much and I've just had a lovely weekend away with him! Glad to hear your grandson is settling into school life Lx

Dear Auntie Gwen, somehow it's comforting to know other people can't do it either! And yes, it was a glorious weekend, sunny and lovely by the sea. M xx

Dear Crystal, I sound like a complete dope I know - I wish I could just do it! Yes, had a great time with my little scrap. M :-)

Dear Donna, I'm getting so frustrated with it - I'm afraid I shout at it, but it doesn't seem to help! Strange that.. Hugs M xx

Hi Lulu, lovely to hear your news, and so pleased about your weekend. I love to hear that you're having fun. Long may it last. M xx

Stinking Billy said...

Hey, Margot, where do you get off, blaming poor Blogger for all your own inadequacies? You wouldn't catch me being so frustrated and unfair. You are obviously one of those technophobe types and a disgrace to the rest of us! ;-)

A Mother's Place is in the Wrong said...

Hey Billy, you've sussed me out - and of course you are the techno Supremo!! I give up and acknowledge your innate superiority. M :-)
