      Couldn't have asked for better news overnight.....feels like a huge weight has been lifted off the family's shoulders

      Feels like the longest 54 days of COVID lockdown/restrictions .No real end in sight either as cases numbers keep rising.

        @littlekiwi (((Hugs))) I'm sorry - we just finally turned the corner on cases and are heading down. Stay safe

      Ugh, had another error message with ACDSee but I had backed up the database just before DSD so nothing too major fingers crossed

        Bright side? You got to chat with us this morning! I hope the database works after!

        worked perfectly @bestcee, just gave me a minor heart attack thinking I'd potentially lost everything like last time but between backing up yesterday and embedding data I don't think I've lost anything!

      I wonder if the Naming Fairy will make an appearance during the DSD festivities. Feeling like it’s time for a “new name”

        @SeattleSheri basically only going out for groceries, doctors, chemists, COVID testing and vaccinations. Hoping mid next week things will ease and we can do takeout as well as click & collect. More importantly it will mean for my family that my grandma can move into the retirement village and family no longer have to provide 24/7 care.

      Feeling a bit broken right now and kind of helpless due to lockdowns as I can’t physically support family that need close to 24/7 support.

        @norton94 unfortunately it won’t as it’s my grandma whose 84 with dementia waiting to get in full time residential care. Can’t do the move until we aren’t in Covid lockdown. At the moment family are providing support at her home - it’s my mums turn for 5 nights.

        Things don't sound quite so dire now which is a good thing.....turns out my grandma was saying she was all ok, my aunt who has been supporting her was saying she was in a really bad state but the actual story is somewhere in the middle which is what my mum and I figured would be reality at least for now and she seems in good spirits while my mum is spending 5 nights with her.

      2 challenges done and its not even the end of the 3rd here. Must be a new record for me. Admittedly one was also a CT layout for Soco too.

        Oh by no means am I upset by it at all @Tree City, I’d rather do it this way than be locked down for months on end or be given too much freedom and COVID is rampant.

        Believe it or not I bought it about 6 months ago but hadn’t got around to installing it. Figured when my laptop was being fixed it would be the perfect time for it to be installed since I was already paying the technician anyway.

        Thanks @cfile @Angela Toucan @umyesh - this has certainly brightened up what has ended up being a pretty awful afternoon & evening. Currently have no wireless internet or landline until after 9am Sunday morning as we ran into issues setting it up so have to wait until we can ring for help. Think about 5 things went wrong from about lunchtime onwards - each thing wasn’t super big but cumulative mean I’m over today.

        @umyesh, highly unlikely being at the bottom of the world and its the first day of a two week school vacation period so everyone is probably using the internet. I do have a new modem to install later tonight which might help things along massively
