Computer madness

Standard

To be exact not only was the computer acting crazy so was the site I was connected to. Let me explain. On Thursday I opened my account at ‘Very’ and bought a new pair of shoes which arrived on Friday. Excellent service I thought and these were the shoes I actually bought, not the one shown in the other post…new-heels-1

And believe it or not they cost a mere £9.50 or thereabouts. The heel height is as I said, four and a half inches and they are lovely to walk in. Today, Sunday as I write this, I decided to invest in some new nylon stockings, six pairs of one type costing £4.50 a pair and five pairs of another type costing £3.50 a pair or thereabouts and with postage they cost me almost £46 I think. I didn’t make a point in remembering the detail. I used a different site, one which specialises in the sale of lingerie, stockings, corsets and other feminine wear. They are called ‘Stockings HQ’, what else? I have an account with them and it is where I purchase all my stockings. I had no problems in carrying out the purchase. Later again I decided I liked a certain pair of shoes I had seen on ‘Very’s’ site and started to make the purchase. I have an account with them but for one reason or another my details were not recognised. After several attempts to put things right and not succeeding I decided to give up but when using the computer to connect to another site not related to shopping I noticed there was a conflict between the systems which auto-fill some of the sites I visit. Chrome is the culprit for often auto-filling data as another program is already doing it. I didn’t set it up that way, well not purposely but the effect was annoying to say the least. I was finally able to re-visit Very and make the purchase…….. new-heels-2

I think the heels are five inches. I say that because the information had not been put in the advert but looking and comparing with the first pair they are higher. This pair cost me over £48 including the postage at £3.60. Why did I buy them, when I have all these in one wardrobe…. pics-455

and others, not all stilettos, in another wardrobe? Simple, I love shoes. In the picture above there are eleven pairs but there are actually thirteen pairs. Two of them are out of sight to the left. The pair at the extreme right are the highest at five and a half inches, the red and the white pairs are five and a quarter inches. The next group is around four and a half. The pink and fawn ones together with the next black ones are four and a quarter inches high and those out of the picture are three and a half. Now I have two new pairs! Anyway after making my purchases five minutes later the computer crashed and needed a re-boot. This is the old machine running Windows 7 which I prefer. The Windows 10 machine isn’t much used except for when I have to update security or Windows, which does it automatically when switched on. So there you have it, a bad day at the office.
