Alfresco Saturday – multi tasking

After 10, my house,
Cool and slightly overcast.
Breakfast, coffee, and trying to be organised.

Happy surprises

I received an email tonight that means a lot to me.
It was a complete surprise, and totally unexpected.
I don’t know this woman very well, She could walk down the screen and I would not even know her. In fact the last time I saw her I was no doubt just a babe in arms.
I do remember writing her a letter many years ago. A long and weird letter. No surprises (although I have no idea of her circumstances) that she did not respond. I don’t blame her. I probably wouldn’t have responded to me either.
My parents have kept in some kind of touch with her, she knows of the basics of where we are now, and has my social media contacts. She will probably read this at a point in the future too. And I am fine with that.
I want to get to know this person better, even if it is just through the odd email or on Facebook.

A Happy Birthday email, with some lovely compliments, news and questions was a beautiful touch to the end of a great day – from my Godmother 🙂

Because it brings a smile to my face.

Well. That’s that then I spose.

So, I sent another email to Vista stating that I was going to close my website, and asking about my blog.
The response. Over the 24 hrs they told me – but within 48 – I got an email with a stock standard reply. Not even a “sorry, can we do anything to make you stay” or anything that vaguely resembles something personal. And it looks like I’ll have to cut and paste all my blog posts. The pictures will have to stay unfortunately. After all, they are lurking in the depths of the laptop or external hard drive somewhere. I rarely delete much, well I do, but if it’s been published, then it hasn’t been deleted. Looks like I have some work to do the next few evenings – bah! Boring.

I have adjusted the old website and removed all the pages so now it is a home page with the new address on it. This will stay until I’m done with the blog posts.

My email to Vista and their reply is below. Thanks very much. Not.

Hi, I sent an email last week regarding my blog and getting all the posts transferred to my new blog address (or directly to me to use) but have not had a reply. I have started my website with another host and would like to take my blog entries with me, rather than lose them when I cancel this subscription. Is there a way I can transfer my posts while keeping the pictures intact without the hassle that cut and paste requires. I look forward to your reply. Jennifer.”

That’s all they had. Really disappointed in them. I will continue to buy my cards from them, after all there has never been a problem with those.

My day started well, and even after that, still going well. I had my pamper session. Oh the bliss, of someone else washing your hair and getting a head massage with it. With pleasure there is always some pain, and I got that as well, damn stingy eyes. Oh, the price we pay for vanity… I now have the afternoon stretching out ahead of me with only one thing to do before picking up son #2 from the bus stop.

Have a great day and don’t forget to compliment & pamper the ones you love 🙂
Jennifer
