The craft fair sales on Wednesday were excellent, one of my best ever, so a good day. Then yesterday I tries to print something and the printer stopped working. Tried the diagnosis and there is a problem with the cartridge alignment and the black won't work.  It is only two years old but I can't be without a printer so headed off to Currys and bought a lovely new printer. £70 off, just been reduced that day. Got home, couldn't get it to connect to Wi-Fi, grrr. Tried several times and rang the guy who sorts out these things and he is coming this morning. He said lots of the new printers are difficult to install theWi-Fi.  Great! I'm sure he will sort it, but that's more money!
