As if things are not bad enough at the moment with being shut indoors but then the hosting company for my website decided to do a bunk and disappear from everywhere online!  I am not sure how many people this affected but probably hundreds, so if you didn’t have your site backed up then you have now got NO site. I did think I had it all backed up as after 13 years you do have rather a lot of content in your blog. But no, mine was not backed up, serves me right for not reading one of the plug-ins properly.

Pipdig very kindly gave me my theme again but it was still a shock to get that and see that the first page in colour was all my site consisted of!

I am not sure if I will get all or even some of my content back in my site I will just have to wait and see, some very nice people have offered to help and I do have the old site in a scrape….I don’t really understand that so I am just hoping and praying that something might magically happen over night.

I can just hear my friends saying, but Karen you are not very lucky should you just accept that it’s gone. That’s the thing with friends they tell you the truth LOL. Today I have started to make it back to my own, I was hoping to have a lot more done but it is surprising what you forget, I’m trying to work out the menu’s now but think it might wait until tomorrow.

These things are sent to try us, I was tempted to just close my blog all down but then what would I do? At least this just lets me do what I can whenever I feel ok and it is very comfortable and warmer in winter to just sit in bed with the laptop letting all you lovely followers know what’s going on.

I am about to finish the book I am reading tonight, it is very good and not only keeps the characters trying to work out what is going on but us readers as well.

Have a good evening, I will try to find my name to put at the bottom of my posts now.

      Hi, I think it will take a while as there was so much on it. Years of blogging takes up a fair amount of space. Im keeping my fingers crossed.

      Everyone who saved anything saved the posts so they don’t work anymore. As I wrote straight onto the site I have no copies of anything. I hope at some point someone will be able to get some of it back, I will just have to wait and see. In the meantime I best get writing. Hope you are keeping well and safe x
