I did something today which is totally out of character, I bought something off the internet. You know me, I don't do that. I prefer to pay cash and don't trust putting my card details into a web site, however much they say it's safe. But today I did just that. It was far easier than driving to the camera shop in Lincoln to buy a memory card reader.
For some reason the one I have been using for several years has stopped working. It will not transfer the photo's from the canon camera to the computer. I have got round the problem by taking the card out and inserting it into the Fujifilm camera then connecting a lead from that to the computer. That has been working but it's a faff.
I rang the shop to ask if I could deal directly with them and they could take payment over the phone. They said no, they can't do that. The nice young man looked in his catalogue and sent me an email with a link for the item I need. The shop is part of a large company. It was £20 including postage, so not a great amount. It should arrive on Monday.
I won't be making a habit of this, won't get sucked into the dangerous world of internet shopping. I can see how easily it would be to fall for the convenience of shopping from your computer. I shall have some sleepless nights now thinking about someone hacking into mine or their computer, stealing my card details.
It's been raining most of the day, There was a window of about one hour when it stopped so I grabbed the chance of taking Billy for a walk. It's been a day of sewing and watching videos.
I rang a firm about the removal of my garage. They don't do a whole package supplying men to do do the job, and disposal of the garage. I have to arrange the men and they will accept the asbestos, double wrapped. It can be delivered to them or they will provide a skip. I will make some enquiries.
Have a great weekend. We'll catch up soon. Toodle pip. ilona
