Re:
Fennie's Avatar Morning Camilla. You trail in your wake a long tail of misfortune like cans after a wedding car. But you don't mention the tooth, which is a good sign. And you have your laptop. Gosh you are going up in the world. Your heating sounds simple to fix if the boiler's working. Maybe the thermostat is stuck, or the radiators need draining because of an airlock. Do you have one of those radiator keys?

Can you get hold of a USB stick easily? If not I could send you one - but you could get one from Amazon or eBay just as quickly.

Won't your existing mouse just plug in? And why a white mouse? Will any mouse not do?

What make is your laptop?

Have a good day free of new misfortunes.

Lovely picture by the way and I love windows with window seats.Very HappyVery Happy

Camilla's Avatar Morning Fennie,

Haha..... Trailing like cars after a wedding car, yes I know yes indeed Fennie, I'm doomed! As the actor Laurie would say in Dads ArmyLaughing

No radiators downstairs at all underfloor heating, but a few radiators upper floors 6 in all. Man is coming Monday to check he said it won't be the pump he called in while he was doing job for our neighbour next door but said he had to scoot off being late in the day.

Oh too kind thanks Fennie, I shall easily get a USB stil from Amazon next week no rush. The mouse I do have black one to my old PC suppose could attach to new Laptop? I think my old mouse is wireless though .

Shall have to look up name of laptop forgotten already Fennie know it has Windows 10.

Tooth is bearable just thank you.

Have a good day Fennie and everyone.Very Happy

Re:
Fennie's Avatar Thanks Camilla. I don't know much about these things but it would be worth ensuring with the shop that it (and the Windows 10) are working properly before finalising the purchase and if not be prepared to return it. But here's some purple stardust to ensure that it all works fine. Very HappyVery Happy

Re:
Fairy Nuff's Avatar I wondered how you were going to do much on an electric razor even if it did have windows 10 Blink 'till I looked them up... did you use them at work Camilla?

Re:
Camilla's Avatar Whats the electric razor FN? I did not used a laptop at work as they were not around then when I was working it was typewriters.

Re:
Camilla's Avatar Sorry to hear about the washing machine Fennie is it pumping out water or just not going?

Posted by: Camilla on 17th Sep 2017 at 05:30PM

Re:
Fennie's Avatar The washing machine is sounding as though there's a bunch of keys loose in the mechanism and possibly the smell of burning rubber - do w/ms have fan belts? But it has washed and rinsed my holiday washing. Quite old - a Bosch - done very well.

Gosh those old manual typewriters on which I learned to type many years ago, though always with two fingers. Perhaps that is the reason why the lettering on my computer keys wears away entirely (A,S,D,E,) I hit the keys too hard as if there is still a ribbon to impress. Remember tippex and those pieces of white carbon paper and the funny pink nail varnish stuff you used if correcting a stencil.Very Happy

And you know thatv the longest word that you can make with the top row of keys is - typewriter! Very HappyVery Happy

Re:
Fairy Nuff's Avatar You said "give me a vintage Remington..." I didn't realize they made anything other than razors Camilla. Very Happy Did they make typewriters too?

Re:
Camilla's Avatar It's hot water heating Withy under the floor.

Thanks for deleting my repeated second comments Withy, not got used to my laptop yet.Very Happy

Re:
Camilla's Avatar Ah, now I see what you mean re razors FN, yes there were Remington typewriters years ago.Very Happy

Re:
Camilla's Avatar Sounds like the washing machine fan belt has gone Fennie hope it can be fixed without having to buy new one. Yes remember the old white tippex for going over mistakes with.

Fancy ! Of course typewriter word on first keyboard line Very Happy
