A Self-Portrait.

I love this skirt. It twirls and swirls and it makes me feel like a proper young lady. It's soft and silky and frilly, and I just love it! Anyway, I just liked this one. :)

I am in the process of clearing up my hard-drive. I don't know how it ever got THIS disorganised. My RAW files take up a lot of space and I only had 2% left of space. Eek! I don't delete the OOF ones or anything so have been doing that. By accident I deleted on of my novels, an unfinsished one that I wrote in the summer. My favourite. :) I managed to recover it but it won't open. I do so hope I get it back. I might have a hard copy somewhere but if not then those beautiful words will be lost forever. Sometimes I despair over modern technology. Need to go burn my pictures to the external hard-drive.
Love, Lulu :)

I like your skirt, too! Very feminine and pretty. Too many girls have no interest in looking like a proper young lady these days...

Sorry to hear about your novel...one of the downsides to technology, I'm afraid. Hopefully, you can salvage it.

Love the skirt! It's gorgeous. I love clothes that just feel right.

Ugh I need to back up my stuff too. I'm getting close to running out of disk space, but I'm so not motivated to do it :(

Hope you get your novel back. Definitely don't give up until you get a real expert-type person to give it a try, they're amazing at finding things you thought were long-gone!

Love your skirt! It's so pretty. I use to love wearing dresses and being girly, but with 2 toddlers, I rarely find the time to be girly anymore. :(

I'm sorry about your novel. Hopefully you will get it back.

Thanks for reminding me to clean up my hard drive! I am constantly needing to free up space and burn cds!

Thanks everyone, i really really do appreciate your visits. :)

BTW, I didn't mean my words (in my novel) were particularly beautiful!!! Just words in general. Hope I didn't sound vain or anything.

LOL Christie, thanks!

I LOVE this, Lulu! So feminine!

Okay, I SO know what you mean about the hard drive. I'm stressing at the moment, too, because my computer has about 1-2% available space, as well. Eek! I don't know what I'm gonna do.

I really, really hope you get your novel back. :-(

Lulu
I love this self portrait~
It has such a soft feel to it & such great composition.
I would suggest to everyone to get an external drive or two for keeping your images on. It is much better all around!
Thanks for being you Lu~
You bring sunshine to the world
