Thanks for help with the emulsion question. I don't think it would be Primer so the water based one sounds hopeful. We can buy tiny little pots so you can test the colour - might be a cheap way to try.
I do use Paint Shop Pro most of the time, Sharon. I have the odd little bash with Photoshop Elements, just to keep my hand in and to use one or two effects that I like. I find Elements has certain things that PSP doesn't, such as gradient maps and I also like some of the restore photo filters. Mostly it is what you get used to and find easy to use, I think.
Disaster - my laptop died yesterday. Luckily I'd backed up most things but I am a bit worried about my Talks folder. I shall have get it to a specialist in data extraction and see if they can retrieve it. It's all my fault, too, as Clive wanted to get me a new one and I kept putting it off. I hate new machines. He has been very noble about not saying I told you so, especially as I am now having to use his laptop. I have resolved to save the worrying until after Christmas.
We had such a lovely lunch for Fiona's birthday. Here she is with the wood-working son-in-law who is doing an impression of Professor Winston with a cracker moustache.
The two cousins are having a great time and Lauren was happy to join Sophie in doing the kids fun pack. We all failed to do the Christmas anagrams - even Clive Grey, BA! I blamed the Margheritas.
One good thing about the lack of laptop - I can't do my article. Hooray! Off to the kitchen for a festive cook-up.
