Soul Journal and Computer Glitch

Well, I was all set to show you what I have been doing today. I started uploading the photos of my Soul Journal which I have started, following Sarah Whitmire (as if I didn't have enough to do already! lol). I've spent most of this afternoon working on the first two pages and was feeling really pleased with myself. No sooner did I start putting the photos on the computer than I get a warning "Low virtual memory"! What does that mean!?!! Apart from anything else, it meant the laptop seized up and I couldn't do a thing with it. Even switching it off didn't help! You may have gathered tho' that I have managed to coax it back in to life but I daren't open Photoshop again until I get some more memory, if that is all the problem is.
Out of necessity this is going to be a short post with no pix for the moment. Yesterday we had a lovely day at Heckington Show. It's a village show which is in its 141st year and although I have lived in Lincolnshire for many years this is the first time I had been. It was great! Piccy's to come!
Today is my birthday and I've had a lovely day playing in my shed with DH bringing me cups of tea, sandwiches and a roast lamb dinner. Well, I did come in for the roast lamb dinner. :o) I'm off to fetch a birthday brandy now and have a go at Picasa to see if that will work.

Happy Birthday and Sarah says hello back - she has gone off exploring for a couple of days but is not enjoying the rain!

Happy b-day, julie, glad you had the perfect day, good old DH, he obviously knows, what makes you happy LOL
My OH has 4 gig of ram on his computer and even his gives the same message when he has lots of windows and progs open. He says you need at least 2 gig of ram to run the latest version of PS, don't know what you have.
I also have a problem sometimes when PS and Word are open and I've got 2 gig of ram on the Imac.
Hope you get it sorted soon so we can see the pics.
Thanks for dropping in on my blog, I was delighted with my stash.

Happy belated birthday!! Sounds as though shed tinkering is a fab way to have spent it and roast lab dinner? Excellent.

Sorry your pooter's playing up - they can be such a pain.

Guinea is now (semi-) famous!

A very happy birthday to you! It sounds as if you had a lovely day. I'm having computer problems as well and have completely lost Word and Works. I've done something daft, but what?? The Picassa thing happens to me to, and I just let it get more memory from somewhere else and it seems to sort itself out. It's done it 2 or 3 times now. I think it sets aside a certain amount of memory for such things by default, but it needs adjusting if you have lots of piccies. lol Annabel (she of ex-wittering rainbow fame!)

Happy Birthday Julie. Hope you get your computer fixed, I'm looking forward to seeing the photos of Heckington. My uncle took us there a few years ago when we visited the UK.
