Blogger Is Making Me Very Grumpy.

Grrr - blogger is playing tricks on me.

Yesterday my template seemed to get eaten up and half my blog background seemed to disappear into the ether.  I have spent some of this morning trying to fix it and the combination of very slow internet and a Macbook that keeps shutting itself off has meant things have not gone smoothly.  At one point my header went missing.  I have no idea where it went but it hasn't come back!  To be perfectly honest I am not quite sure what my blog currently looks like as it is so slow to load that I can't actually see.  I have a sneaking suspicion it is mainly orange which was not the plan.

However in the interest of my sanity and the safety of my Macbook (which has come perilously close to being frisbeed into the paddock on several occasions) I am giving up for a while.  Hopefully this post will publish..... But then again who knows?

Take care and I will see you later, hopefully with a better-dressed and more harmoniously accessorised blog.

Edited to add: The internet sped up enough that I could play around with a few blogger templates.  So at least the blog is no longer wearing the equivalent of an orange prison jumpsuit....  Alas the old template is gone for good.

It is orange but I can still read the words and that's all that matters to me. I thought your blog title was going to read, "this blogger is making me thirsty". LOL You probably do feel like a stiff drink. LOL

Mine went funny for a minute this morning too, but then came good. Think its an internet/blogger issue (it probably would have resolved had you not done anything?) Header is no longer there, but this looks quite refreshing, like you are renovating!

Ugh! I have a lot of problems with uploading photos at the moment, the whole thing keeps crashing and it takes ages! Hope yours is back on track ASAP09

I have noticed increasing issues with it as well...I wonder if as they are getting rid of Google reader then they are also going to unwind this part of it...Who knows. But hope your internet sorts itself out!

Mine went haywire a white back and I can't even remember how I fixed it. I now use Google Chrome when I want to do a post as pictures wouldn't load up when I used Firefox. Perhaps give that a go! Frustrating to the max, hey!

Sounds like my week last week. The brand new laptop was nearly thrown against the wall in frustration. Hope you manage to get the blog back... xx

Oh, I hate that. Life is too short to be spending hours updating your blogger page, when it was fine in the first place!

I hope it returns to its former glory soon. xx

Seriously, is there anything more annoying than blogger having a hissy fit? It completely ate an entire post of mine the other day and it was a long one too and there was no getting it back. I was more than grumpy. This still "looks" like you though but I hope you sort it out soon. Mel x
