Things have taken a short pause around here but I wanted to make a quick update so you know what is going on. Our renovation has been delayed about a month by the incessant rain we experienced for most of February. At this stage we are looking to start in early May.
Two days ago we came home from work and discovered that we had been robbed.
The two laptops that contained every picture of our children for the last seven years were taken, and a string of pearls given to me by my dad when I graduated from university. While Legoman did back our photos up to an external hard drive, it appears that the back up is incomplete. I have not fully investigated how many years of baby photos are gone yet as I need a bit of time to get my head around it first. For a prolific photo taker like me it is a sad, sad day.
However, there are several things to be grateful for. We are all ok, we are insured and how it heartened me to realize that nearly every important moment in my kid's lives for the last two years has been kept safe on this little blog. I intend to make some time to print out more of my favourite photos and display them. Our wedding photos ( being pre digital era) are all safe. The policeman who came to fingerprint the house recently lost every image of his life for a decade, including all his wedding photos, when his external hard drive blew up.
So, I thought I would use our situation to remind you all to back up those irreplaceable photos of your children and let you know there are built in functions on iPhones, iPads and Apple laptops that once you have enabled them, will let you track where your device is. Thankfully, my camera was not stolen and as soon as I can borrow a computer from my mum, I have lots to share.
