Do NOT try this at Home

Just popping in to tell you about my mishap.  On sunday l settled in my chair ready to do some catching up and commenting on my lappy - l realised the battery was low so hubby went upstairs to get my charger - he even plugged it in for me.
I could not understand why the screen kept shutting off - until l checked the 'charger' it was the electric cable for my cricut ...whoops.... too late the damage was done. I think it has blown quite a few important parts.

My brother in law is an expert at repair so off  l trotted to his house yesterday. After running a few tests he decided it was probably the hard drive... off l trotted again up the road the road to CCL (luckily in our village) and bought the new hard drive and left it with BIL.  It is still not working today and it may be the graphics chip ....ouch. More tests are ongoing.

So big apologies for not doing the rounds - l am on the main house desk top which l don't like and my hubby's old laptop is rubbish too.  I did not back up my files and they may not be able to be retrieved so l am not a happy bunny :(

Hope l can upload my card for Allsorts on saturday as it is our birthday celebrations x
