And Today Is...?? (On My Desk Wednesday...only that'll be Thursday!)

onmydeskwednesday late thurs, originally uploaded by fancypicnic.

Excuse me...can anyone tell me what happened? I mean, where did yesterday disappear to, exactly? How can you just 'lose' a day, just like that? Wham, gone - right off the face of the earth?
I was obviously having too much fun. Yesterday morning, I received an early birthday present. I know - lucky old me!! What was it, then, that caused my day to vanish in a blur? A new slide scanner/copier, that's what.
Now, that may not sound like the ultimate in birthday luxuries to some, but to me it's perfect! I'm so excited! At last, I can delve into my childhood again, and revisit long since forgotten days. I've been having a whale of a time, dipping in and out of the 1960's and 70's; having a giggle at my parents' outfits and shoes; having a moan at the hairdo's my mum insisted I sported and re-living old school holidays spent lying in the garden reading books on psychedelic sun loungers! It's fantastic!
That's my entry for this week's On My Desk Wednesday - a handful of old slides and that neat and dinky black box snuggling up to my computer. What you can't see are the bags and bags of more slides waiting to be revealed, stuffed under the table!! No-one'll get fed for weeks!

What a great way to spend a day though.....a real scream. You have given me an idea, because my Dad has our lives documented in thousands of slides that never see the day. Hope you have many more hours of reliving lovely memories x

I'm with Hens teeth on that ..ditto in everyway.
Was it expensive?Do you need an expensive programme om Computer to use it? My sons bought me a tablet and stylus for my birthday but I don't have photoshop on my laptop so I haven't used it yet!
