I will not be much online for a while, so please forgive me for not visiting your blogs so much.
The road, where I live, lost our electricity yesterday morning. There had an explosion in the cables and much needed to be changed for new parts.
I live in a rented house and the others are living here do own their houses. In this case, all the owners needed to agree to buy and pay for the repair of our electricity, before the electricians began their work.
We ended up having electricity in the middle of the evening, after more workers were called in because of mistakes at the public cables too.
Unfortunately my PC screen went up in smoke, while the repair went on and my router died in same time, so I do only have my mobile for now.
Wish all of you a beautiful day, Irene

So sorry to hear about your troubles. 😦 I recently survived a 2 week loss of my laptop and it’s hard. I hope you’re able to get back on soon!
Thank you Robin, it seems like many machines here are broken after yesterday.
Good that you managed to find a solution.
Sounds pretty awful. I hope everything is resolved for you soon Irene. Sending you a hug.🌼
Thank you very much
Oh no Irene that’s terrible. Hope you are able to get your router and computer working again! Glad you at least have your mobile.
Thank you Suzanne and yes, I’m grateful to have my mobile and that it wasn’t recharging at that time.
Fingers crossed your problems are resolved quickly. Electricity can do dreadful things to computers and equipment 😦
Thank you and I agree, much are destroyed here now
Ohh that’s so unfortunate..be well…
Hope all is back to normal soon Irene.. xxx
Thank you Sally
No one is going anywhere Irene. We will all be here when you come back. Take care!

Such frustrations life tosses at us, lobs at us, or hurls at us! I hope everything gets sorted out soon. We’ll be here waiting for your return Irene.
Thank you Colleen
So sorry to hear this !! I hope it is not too cold where you live ! See you soon on WordPress again !
Sorry to hear this, Irene. I do hope you can get your pc up and running again. If I understand right, you do have some electricity?
Thank you Sylvester and yes, I got electricity back yesterday, but my screen is dead plus several other machines are either dead or don’t function, very annoying.
You’re welcome and I’m glad you have power. Sounds like a power surge.
While they repaired, we got some electricity inside the house, but not in a good way, which broke much here.
Okay, I understand better now.
I hope you are functioning at full force soon. Hurry back Irene. ❤
Thank you Holly, I will do my best
I know ❤
So sorry to hear you have had this problem Irene and had a power surge that wiped out our PC and modem.. Sending my thoughts my friend.. And do not worry about answering.. Love to you xxx ❤
Thank you Sue ❤
Irene that’s awful. I hope you get sorted soon.
Thank you Tric, I hope so too
So sorry you have so much trouble. Sending good energy too!
Thank you Bee
Where do you live?
I live in Spain
Hoping things get better for you soon! 🙂
Thank you Tom
Oh how dreadful. Good luck getting those issues resolved.
Thank you Joey
I hope this incident has not affected your health in any way, dear Irene!
Thank you Dolly, I’m happy, that we got the electricity back before midnight, so I could get some warm here again. It is winter here too.
How did people live without electricity? I am glad you are warm and comfortable, dear friend! 😻
Thank you Dolly, I have lived in two houses here in Spain without both electricity and usual running water and it was tough, but we learn.
Yes, I got it back and stay warm now 🙂
Human beings are infinitely adaptable, certainly, but you have to take care of your health! 😻
I do my best, Dolly.
Ohh, such awful news, however, do not worry, situation will improve! We will be waiting for your back! Take care!
I hope everything can be fixed up soon Irene. Please take care of yourself.
Thank you Mavis
I am so sorry dear Irene! Stay well and I am thinking of you sister xoxo
Thank you sister. The contacts in my living room stopped function an hour ago, so no warm here for now. I hope the electrician will come tomorrow. At least it is evening now.
Wish you a happy weekend, dear friend 🙂
Thanks for the update Irene. I hope you get back on line … and have heat soon!
I’m looking forward to get all to function again, Val.
So sorry to hear, Irene. But no worries. We’re not going anywhere 🙂 ❤
Thank you Tina
Sorry to read this, and sorry for not having seen your post earlier…. I hope you can get your screen and routeur fixed or replaced soon, but you don’t have to worry, as others mentioned it, we’re not going anywhere in the meanwhile 🙂
Thank you and hugs for you too
Sorry to hear about this Irene. I hope everything is up & running for you soon.
Thank you, I hope so too.
You know you are in my heart and prayers, Irene. Life sure has a way of throwing obstacles in our path. I wish you only the very best from out of this! 💕🌸💕
Thank you Amy. I haven’t been able to cook since day 9 and it is also winter here, even without snow. So warm food is usually much appreciated. I hope for tomorrow, that something good will happen. You are right, Amy. Much love to you ❤
I mainly use my mobile! Hopefully you can still get around with the app. 😄
Thank you, Jason.
I can’t post as earlier, because I need my photo programs, but it is okay to read from the Reader here, even if I prefer to use my PC. Hope all is well with you 🙂
Awww well I still post with photos from my phone I take. But my photos stink lol.
I use the program to write my logo, Jason.
Your photos use to be good 🙂
LoL well you are kind as ever! 😄👍
So sorry to hear about your electricity and computer! My best to you!
Oh that is such awful news to hear Irene and I’m so sorry that you have to worry about this on top of everything. Sending much love and prayers your way and a very special wish for you from the striped rocks. Hugs to you and hang in there.
Thank you, Rhapsody.
I hope for the best today, did so yesterday too, but nothing happened.
Fingers crossed and continuous prayers coming your way.
Thank you so much, Rhapsody 🙂
You are very welcome. 💙🦋
Hope everything will get better for you soon! All the best ! 🙂
Thank you, Cristina
I’m so sorry to hear that you’re going through this rough patch Irene. Technology has really changed how much we depend on our devices. I hope everything gets sorted out soon.
Thank you Steph, I would be happy just to be able to cook again. Last time was one week ago.
Something did burn in the cables and the house owner isn’t very helpful either.
We take so many things for granted and everytime the power goes out I’m reminded of how much I rely on it. A week is way too long to not be able to do the basics. It’s a shame the owner isn’t helpful however I bet if the situation were reversed it would be different. It boggles my mind how so many people can be so nonchalant about events affecting others.
I can only agree with you, Steph.
Sorry to hear the news Irene. I hope that it all works out for you very soon. Will be thinking of you and hope to hear from you soon. Milanka
Thank you Milanka, I hope so too.
Hi there Irene… just coming for some news, when you have a minute 🙂
I hope the electricity work is getting done… *warmest thoughts* 🙂
Hi Cyranny. It is not done yet, but I think one step closer today. I’m still without PC, ceramic top and washing machine since day 9.
Thank you for your kind concern, wish you a happy day 🙂
Oh my… Another patience challenge!
Have a lovely week 🙂 xx
Exactly and thank you
OMG, I feel so much with you! I hope and wish that soon everything will be alright again! My best wishes for you!
Thank you, I do still fight.
I just visited your website/blog. I didn’t find a site to read about, who you are or other sites about your blog. This is usually the first to check out at a new blog, when I wish to see, who is blogging.
Sending positive vibes.
Sue told me about this on a day when my computer was finally working and the blog site was fixed. And I was sick as a puppy at that time! I have been fighting a sinus infection for a long time now and I’m ready for it to go away — or I’ll just find a small bucket, pierce my nose and hang the bucket there so I can let the nose drip! Just now beginning to leave home for a few hours at a time and really paying the price for each minute of it after I return home.
Were you able to replace your computer? If not, would you want my Android tablet? I have problems making it work right for myself but I think you know so much more about them that you wouldn’t have any trouble at all. Only one problem with it, I put it on “text to speech” and that slowed it down to almost going backward, , and I can’t get it off. Just too impatient right now! If you can pay the postage I can figure out how to send it.I might even be able to figure out how to get my personal information off it without erasing the whole thing, as I have done before. Just let me know if you want it. Possible warning — it is RED! My favorite color at the moment. Has a red case also, and a way to plug the keybord into the tablet.
Hugs! ❤ ❤ ❤ ((()))
Thank you so very much for your kind concern, Angie. I had my PC into a shop for check together with the screen and they found out, that only the screen was dead, so I got a new screen and do now have a working PC again. I have had some challenges after I got it all home, as there have been someone, who try to login at fx my WordPress account. I did have 2-step verification before, but now I changed all my passwords for everything online. This is why, I have been silent since I got it home. I have been in contact with several professionals to get all to function again, because I did have good programs for protection too and those are not in best shape now, but they will be again. Until then I will not be much online for security.
Good to hear, that you are getting back to a better health again, dear friend.
I do have an old tablet, which I also tried to use, but it is too old and the internet is not working to well at it. Then I have my Android mobile, which has been my only device for a while now.
Still my ceramic top for cooking isn’t repaired yet, they are awaiting for a new PC to come home to install in it.
My washing machine is in for repairing too. So this last time has been stressing. Keep your tablet as a backup, if your computer gets challenges, it is not funny, when such things are happening.
Big hugs for you too ❤
What a horrible situation for you. We’ve had power surges and power outages here before, and several years ago my computer was struck by lightening, so I know what these problems are like. Not so bad in this building because we are the first ones to get service restored, but in the house I rented before coming here everything just shut down. My computer was hacked at one time, but I finally switched to the Opera Browser and it all seems to work out better. I sure hope this all gets cleared up for you soon. Thinking about you every day.
Thank you very much, dear Angie ❤
Hi Irene, awful situation! I hope that things go better for you. When you do come back to us, check out my poetry, caelidotblog.wordpress.com/blog/
Hi Camile and thank you. I’m still fighting, but in the right direction.
I think, that you are a new blogger in here and welcome to our blogging world.
Please read this post: https://irenedesign2011.com/2016/10/11/dear-readers-new-followers/
I’m sorry you had to go through this and hope the repairs will be better. Take care!
Thank you very much.
Hi Irene. I’ve been away due to a death in the family and then didn’t feel like writing for a few months. It’s nice to be back but I’m sad to hear about your experience with power and your computer. I hope all is better soon and you are finding ways to enjoy this unscheduled time off from blogging. Perhaps there will be many adventures to share with us when you return!! Take care, Melissa
Thank you, Melissa.
I’m sorry to hear about your news and understand, why you haven’t been in here for a while. Take you time and remember to take good care of yourself too ❤
Hope it’s all sorted now Irene… knowing the SPANISH, I understand this problem happens often, killing our products too! Acceptance comes after so many years❤️❤️ much love, barbara x
Thank you, Barbara. My home is close to function again, as usual and yes, it can be tough going through.
Sorry you’re losing your connection to your blog and etsy site. Hope it all gets sorted out in short time and you’re back with us here on WordPress. Take care my friend.
Thank you Lilly, I’m on the way back now, but it has been a little tough.
Sorry for the rough patch but glad to hear you’re coming back.
Just when I looked forward to meeting you. I’ll be waiting when you return. Best wishes to you!
You are welcome!
It sounds like a rough patch and I do hope it all ends for you soon so you can enjoy sunny skies xxoo
Thank you Christy, I’m on the way back, it just took a huge part of my abundance to go through.
Hope you get back onto your techno feet soon. It’s something we depend on so much these days, and can feel like returning to the dark ages. Also hope your finances are blessed and don’t take a big hit.
Thank you Rowena. I waited very long time to get things back to function and it demanded mostly of my abundance, why I haven’t been posting since yet, but it will come.
