Please Meet My New...

...laptop! It's a present from my parents and it got delivered on Tuesday afternoon. It's something I have chosen not to blog about in the past, but this year has been rather tough for me. I have gone through two eye operations with very painful, slow and tough recoveries. I'm recovering from the second one right now (some of the blog post you have seen during the beginning of the month were pre-scheduled ones as I physically could not see to write them!) and I still don't know whether this is something I have to go through again and again for the rest of my life. Not something I want to think about and something I try not to complain about.

However my parents have felt very sad for me (and rather helpless I guess, being in a different country) and wanted to buy me something to cheer me up a bit. I had no idea they'd been in secret contact with Ross and wanted to buy me a new laptop. I was speechless when I finally was told! :)

It's a Dell Studio 17 with 4 GB of RAM and a 500 GB hard drive (very much needed LOL!) And it's GREEN!! And I totally love it to bits!! :)) The 17" screen is amazing!! I totally have the best parents in the world - ever :)))

I'm currently spending all the time installing everything and moving my files over. I'm having some fun and games because at the same time I'm moving from Windows XP to Windows Vista. Oh joy! Still... I feel like the end is in sight (or "blurry sight" right now in my case!) soon and I already know that I loooove this machine :)
