Location, Location, Location

A few days have been passed since HDA (hard drive apocalypse) and I'd like to feel that the worst about mourning for my lost data is behind me. What kills me is remembering details on what I've lost.



Fortunately, before this week end, I didn't delete a 3GB full to the brim camera memory card so I've got a bit of raw material to work with. The problems are finding the motivation to redo some work which took me ages before to complete and finding a computer to do it on. But now on top of feeling broken, deflated and generally unmotivated, I am beginning to feel more and more guilty about time accumulating, and posts and reviews which have not been done. I know full well I am not a magazine, and the world won't stop turning if I am not posting but I just don't feel right about it and it bugs me. That and there is only so much 'come dine with me' (dear me, the people in 'come dine with me' can be so rude to each other.)and freaking 'location, location, location' I can watch. 





I might be despising tv more than usual as I know I have a serious amount of blogging to do, and a serious amount to redo it all. I don't know where to start and how to go about it again. It is seriously daunting.


All is not lost for definite definite yet, and I have another lifeline to use, before going the final costly 'specialist data recovery route' but this could take weeks before an outcome, with a chance or not to have something back at the end of it. Do I could stand behind at work, when my work day is over, go to computer room or whatever and do some blogging done and have a happier conscience or do I go home, with guilt accumulating, and be bored to death at home, fixating on Kirtie Allsopp's eyebrows and counting down the minutes till bed time?





I did back up my data but not often enough and I didn't have a set routine about it as it was a very faffy operation. If you're reading this, learn from my mistakes, plug your external drive in (or get one even - Comet or Currys is not closing till 8pm, no excuse!) and give your data a little back up. I wouldn't wish my worst enemy to go through what I'm going through.


I miss blogging so much. However the balance between 'proper' reviews, nail posts, makeup looks and 'press releases' isn't going to be good for my immediate future posts. Please bear with me, while I pick up the pieces of myself and find my feet again. Thank you guys so so so much for all your kind messages. xxx


p.s
@bigfashionista: kellie, how about a Phil Spencer Nom or Vom Special?

Liloo, I know how you've been feeling. I have had 3 HDAs in my time, and each time I've had to start all over again. I do hope that if you get a specialist, they can recover your files.

Good luck with it all chick - you need to get away from location location location! That woman is dreadful, so melodramatic and she constantly has a migraine! Yes, turn that tv off! And you readers will be happy with what they get while you find your feet - hope you have fun with it and it isn't all just re-doing stuff. xxx

Oh god my laptop died last week, luckily because of problems I had last time this happened (word of warning HP Pavilion laptops tend to have crappy motherboards) I've been backing up my data more regularly. I haven't quite got everything but there's nothing that can't be replaced by other means thankfully. Total nightmare though! I was considering getting a Macbook but have settled for a Samsung instead as couldn't justify spending that amount.

Dear liloo! I hope everything will be o.k. soon.
