Still no camera, still no pictures back. Looks like my harddisk is gone forever.
I'm considering buying the Canon 400D in stead of sending my 300D out for reparation...Reparement will cost about 150 euro's. My camera is 3 years old and I made almost 20.000 pictures so a new, little more advanced camera might be a better option.... What would you do?
(****edited***** Yay!! just ordered my new 400D and it's arriving tomorrow :))

Arrgghh, and as if this is not enough for a bad start of the year I had to go to the doctor last week because of really heavy pain in my right chest, which made even my arm, back and shoulder hurt with every breath I took. It was really painful and a bit scary too! Found out I'm having Tiezes Syndrome. I had never heard of it. This is what I found about it on the internet:

Your ribs attach to a large bone in the center of your chest in the front. To help you breathe in, your muscles raise your rib cage and to help you breathe out, they relax and let your ribs drop. Therefore, your ribs form a movable joint where they attach to your chest bone. It is common for people to get arthritis (or in my case an infection) in these joints which hurts particularly when they breathe. Tietze's syndrome usually goes away in a few weeks or months with no treatment. However, you can block the pain with arthritis medication or take a xylocaine injection into the painful joints.

So I got painkillers and hope it will only take a few weeks in stead of months!!

The last couple of days I've been working on an assignment for Creatief met foto's.
Alice was so kind to let me use her camera so I could make some sneak peeks!

That's it for now, thanks for stopping by!
Have a nice week!
Birgit

Difficult decision about the camera. Buying something new is always good to feel better ;)

Take care, Astrid

Lieve Birgit,

Ik moest vandaag in Winsum zijn en ik dacht direkt aan jou!
Jee......Wat een slechte start voor je!

Ik hoop van ganser harte, dat je snel van de pijn af bent!
Wat zul je geschrokken zijn! Ik wens je van harte beterschap en tot ziens,

Lieve scrap-groetjes, Jenny.

Ik wens je veel beterschap. het lijkt me een pijnlijk syndroom en ik hoop dat je er snel vanaf bent. je voorproefjes zien er weer prachtig uit. Ik vind je kleurgebruik altijd zo mooi en soms zo subtiel. Ik kijk uit naar het magazine.
Veel plezier met je nieuwe camera.

Hey, how's your new camera??? Did it arrive today?? I sure hope so!

That doesn't sound so good, that syndrom...Hopefully the painkillers will help to ease the pain?
And the sneaks....ok, I understand you can't show the whole project now, but hey... you know I love bright colors don't you?... How long do I have to wait? (can't even buy the CmF here.... wehee)

Het Tietze's syndroom...ken ik...hebben we nog heel hard om gelachen met mijn tante toen ze het had. En dan vooral om de naam en de plaats waar ze pijn had ;-))
voor de rest niet natuurlijk want de pijn was blijkbaar ook de moeite bij haar.
