Technology and me are not friends.
I got a 'new' Fitbit from my girlfriend Chris D the other day, and for a couple of days it worked just fine.
Then yesterday, although the Fitbit itself was working, it wasn't syncing with my computer. So, I couldn't check my numbers, steps, sleep and so on.
After mucking around with it for HOURS, I got it working and syncing on my phone, so at least I could check my numbers.
But it's still not working on my computer. Grrrr.
Steve and Bex are due down sometime today, they are staying for Easter. He reckons he can check it out and maybe get it working again.
I hope he can. But. I have done everything the help line suggested? *sigh*
The reason I really wanted to be able to check the numbers was because I wanted to work out if I could get it to 'track' my 'steps' while I was on my bike or exercycle.
I cut one of Keera's socks in half, and I use it to hold the Fitbit on my leg! Works a treat, and is 100% accurate too.
Bang on the steps, and distance. I'm rather chuffed with that. Now it will track that exercise too.
The exercycle is in the lounge, so I can ride and watch the telly at the same time, that makes it less boring.
It's too wet to get out on my 'real' bike right now sadly.
Today... well not much on really. Kids have school, Keera is at kindy for the morning, and I'm expecting Bex and the boys sometime during the day. Steve is coming after work... THAT will probably take him ten times longer than usual, knowing Auckland traffic! Rather him than me.
Well... that's all for now... catch ya later.
BE CLEAR WHO YOU ARE HAVING A GO AT ON FACEBOOK... that's how misunderstandings happen.
I've been mega upset for ages this morning, thanks to a post on facebook which I was CERTAIN was directed at me.
Almost had a knee jerk reaction.. ALMOST.
ABOVE: Kelly posted this cute photo of Rena today. She's saving butterflies from their dog ... I'd be saving them from the weather!
We have Cyclone Cook about to hit... expecting massive amounts of rain.
Which is dreadful, cos the country has already been inundated with rain and floods the past week.
There is talk that if the winds get too strong our Auckland Harbour Bridge will have to be closed! I don't think that has ever happened before! Talk is, this storm will be the worst in 50 years!
And this is JUST BEFORE Easter! Thousands of people will be on the roads heading away for the holiday.
I worry about Steve and Bex coming down from Auckland! Or them getting BACK on Monday!
Sadly, Mother Nature will do what it wants.
Well... it's been busy here this morning/afternoon. Russell arrived for morning tea, then Bex and the boys arrived just before lunch, and Steve arrived at afternoon tea time.
Everyone got here safely, and in good time.
Steve took the afternoon off, so he got here before all the traffic built up coming out of Auckland. Lucky!
I've got Chicken Tikka Masala for dinner tonight... not used this mix before so I hope it's nice.
ABOVE: The latest soft toy Dante has to lug around the country... he has quite a collection! Bex made it for him, a Spiderman Sheep.

ABOVE: Even Archer gave it a go...
ABOVE: Then his Dad got silly... and started throwing them all up in the air. *sigh*
ABOVE: lots of fun. Yep.
Right I better go and sort out dinner.... even though Steve is actually doing a very good job of cooking it himself.
Dinner was awesome, the evening has been neat. Coronation Street has just finished and I'm going to bed.
