Oooooh errrr WOYWW


OK... somebody give me back the stolen intervening days since last week please! My WOYWW photo this week is a trifle boring... I am making menus for the afternoon tea, which has jumped forward on the calendar to this Saturday! So I have a couple of busy days ahead of me... baking shortbread and mini banana breads and roasting a couple of chickens for the sandwiches.
And for some weird reason Blogger no longer allows me to upload photos direct from my computer!!  When did that happen and why?  I have had to faff about with Picasa and sign up for web albums and all sorts of other stoooopid stuff just to upload a photo... it was so easy before!!  Anyways, I figured out how to get the pic uploaded but for the life of me I have no idea how to add another one.... it just wants to make another post!!  Sometimes I feel old.... very old... LOL   If there are any kind bright sparks out there that would tell me how to get back to being upload from my own hard drive... honestly, I would be in your debt!!
Don't forget to pop over to dear Julia's and have a nosey at what is on everyone elses' desk, there are so many of us it takes me two days to get round them all!!

Yay!!  Thank you to Esme who explained what I had to do to add  photos!!  So just to prove I can do it... here is a photo of Phantom (as in Phantom of the Opera.... get it?) who is a half brother to my Pandora.  He is the only survivor from Mummy Cat's first litter and he visits a couple of times a day to get fed!!  He was a bit of a fighter but since we had him fixed he has calmed down a lot and looks  a lot healthier now he isn't getting into fights all the time.

  2. I do have Picasa on my PC but couldn't be bothered trying to mess with it this morning as I've not really used it yet as I said though I reverted to the old post editor thingy and it worked.
    Mmmm shortbread and banana bread sounds scrummy :) The menus look lovely :)

  7. I love the sound of the English tea and I know what you meen about blogger it was so easy why have they made it difficult? I can upload from the computer but it took lots of messing about yesterday but seemed alright to day. Why on earth do we need ever photo up loaded any way? Althou I noticed I nkow have the video option which I didn't have as well as a spell checker the older version had them bu the new version didn't and now it's changed again I am too old for this.

    The Menus look fab and a recipy sounds a must I haven't got a banana cake one!

    Love Dawn xx

  8. I am very curious about what those things are on the right of your desk! And I have no idea how to help you with the picture problem. If you figure it out, please post it JUST IN CASE we need the info! Thanks for sharing!

  9. Just a thought Annette - Have you run out of "free" space on your blog. I know a few others that have had problems and as soon as they sign up to pay for additional "space" (only small fee) they had no more problems - Only a thought though as I am no expert.
    When are you coming home to Scotland?

  10. Hiya hun
    I also got flummoxed by the new photo uploader this morning...
    When you open the photo uploader app in "new post" page, ignore the 3 links on the left column (picasa, url and whatever it is). In the main box there should be a button/logo that says "upload" or similar. Click on that and it should let you upload from your hard drive.

    Hope this helps

  12. Great idea - a menu is such an English thing..we do like to check what we're eating against what we're promised! Sounds like it'll be big fun, have a great day.

  28. Sorry to hear of your blogger problems! I've always hosted my pics externally on photobucket, so I can't advise, hopefully someone's been able to help you! I must say, Phantom looks very proud of himself in that pic! :)

Thank you for taking the time to leave your comment, it is truly appreciated - sort of confirms that it is more than my Mum and husband that read this thing! :)
