You know they say, “it’s not a matter of IF but a matter of WHEN”. One day, your computer will die. One day, the disk will fail. I have heard that soooo many times over the last few years. So, I backed up pretty often. And then… my computer died. Nooooooooo!
I now know, I don’t back-up often enough – particularly the photos of my own children. The day my computer died, all my client jobs were somewhere safe, my most recent session was still on a card in my camera, but all of my personal photos from this year… Gone. Noooooooo!
After days of trying to work here and there with no computer, waiting for Mr Fixit to arrive, we kept trying to get it going. Nothing. It was maybe the 87th time that I tried starting it up again (desperately hopeful) that it miraculously read the disk. I frantically copied all my treasured photos of my beautiful babelets. And then, as Dave was calling out for me to copy my emails, address book, favourites, downloads, etc… it died. And I never saw that disk again… So, HOW LUCKY AM I!!! Hooray for small miracles. I do believe my Dad is watching over me, keeping my family safe, finding me awesome parking spots in crowded shopping centres, and now, giving my computer a final hour to get my photos. Thanks a million.
Now, enough rambling, I have so much work to catch up on and more backing up to do!
