And that was that.
I tried everything, although I was nervous to restore settings. Normally I can phone Angus and he will tell me what to do. But he, Amanda and her sister and husband and the children have been taken on a boat trip up the East Coast of South Africa by Amanda's parents. This is a celebration for both their 60th birthdays this month.
For them that's super; for me it's a disaster to have Angus and Amanda offline (they're out at sea) when I have a computer or Smartphone problem.
In desperation I phoned the young proprietor of the local supermarket and he told me to bring my laptop down to his office.
I did; he clicked a few things; set up "restore" and within minutes my computer was up and running.

Grant walked with us earlier this week. I managed shadows of us and a real image of Skabenga
This morning the dogs and I were out there alone. Even though winter is fast approaching, I managed photos of a few little wildflowers on the course )the light was very low so images are blurred!
Back at home, I snapped Rina's late mum's dahlia which is blooming again
My plumbago just a hasn't stopped blooming since the beginning of summer!
The camera can't quite capture the color; this variety of my plumbago is a deep royal blue
