Advice please...and arm update

gosh i  haven't posted for a while...i tried to on my dolce vita but blogger said i had run out of photo space and had to buy more space...
i'm wondering if anyone else has had this happen...
i know that some bloggers have been having problems with photos...
is this connected to that or is it something entirely different????

i've not heard of having to buy more space but that doesn't mean it doesn't exist...
i would be grateful for any advice from anyone who may know something about this...

meanwhile...my broken arm update...
have had a new set of xrays taken and they show that healing is still taking place...
the arm is broken in 2 places...ouch
arm can come out of sling...yay...but put back when tired...
physio to start next week to get it moving again...
i can't even lift it up...it's just too heavy...and painful

more xrays in another month to check healing...
still not allowed to do anything with it...
i'm so grateful to all the wonderful bloggers out there for their friendship and in turn being able to read so many varied and inspiring blogs...these really keep me going at this difficult time...

mr armchair is doing a fabulous job taking care of me and jo jo...
i think he's getting into the swing of it all now...

happy sunday afternoon everyone...perfect autumn weather out there...

You poor darling - oh, I do hope you have a lot of patience with yourself! I haven't and here we are 12 months later and I can really say I'm feeling really good. Just rest up - only time heals - thinking of you!

Oh precious, it is true. My dear blogger pal Jackie had the same notification and had such trouble until she found out that PICASSA (which I didn't know this, but we all have it) keeps track of the number of photos you use. I have not received this notification yet myself, but eventually will. I don't think it costs much, but you will have to look into it. Google Picassa and see if that helps.

NOW FOR PARTY TIME! Oh dearest, I am thrilled that your sling is off. Therapy will help you so much to gain that range of motion back. Your therapist will give you the number of times a week to exercise, but MOVEMENT is the best thing for you! I was having some issues with a pinched nerve last week all through my spring break and it was WORST for me to just lay around! I cannot believe how much better I feel by MOVING ABOUT!

OUR PARTY....oh dearest, I plan on having a big bash all month long for us gals. PINK BUBBLY...OH YEAH...BEACH? CHECK! We shall dream and enjoy.

Have a wonderful day and I hope you resolve your photos issue.

BISOUS, ANita

Oh Dzintra...I so hope you can find out what is happening with your photos...did it help you about the PICASSA information? AND your therapy starts today!!!! Oh I hope that too goes well....yes dearest, the fresh sea air on our birthday journeys will be good for you.....we will all travel together!!!!

Sending you much love and a gentle, very gentle hug!! Anita

Hi Dear Dzintra
Sorry to hear the arm is still bothering you.. but glad it is coming along.. albeit slowly!!

re the photo storage.. I use a test blog before I load my actual posts.. and I know I have zillions of unwanted images in there.. so every now and then I have to go through and cleanup.. mind you that means i occasionally delete a shot from an actual post!! haha.. oops...

the other thing too.. each picasa album only allows 1000 images.. so sometimes [if you load directly to the album rather than through a post]... the album might be full and then one needs to create a new one.. although from the sound of it.. you must have used up the data limit rather than # of images..

if you can go back and delete some stuff you no longer want.. [not through posts.. but directly through the albums].. then that will save you needing to purchase..

hope this helps and doesn't just sound confusing.. send me an email if you want to know more about this..

ciao.. PS>. thanks for the blog birthday wishes.. xxx Julie

I thought Blogger was totally free? I've never had this problem, but then I'm only a random blogger these days....

It sounds like you're doing all the right things with your arm, hopefully it won't be too long before it's usable again. ♥

PS. Mr Armchair is a legend!

Oh dearest SISTA.....today is the day for FREEDOM from the sling; therapy will take a bit of time, but exercise is what you need to get the motion back...we are GOING TO THE BEACH!!!! Have a splendid day. Anita
