I hate getting bogged down with all the things that I put my hand up to do!! The last few months have been quite a trial. I have had to endure some major computer and Internet problems – created by my Internet Service Provider going bust and leaving me in the lurch. The new company caused major problems and I had three people trying to solve the issues for me including one guy who deleted all my programs on my computer. I am still getting them back, but by and large I am well and truly back to some sort of normality.
Then I dropped my cellphone in the lake. I did know that it was not well, before that incident, but the water didn’t help, so I had to buy another one. I don’t like plans, so I buy them, and I had to buy it in a hurry as I don’t have a landline and it was my only contact with the outside world. I chose to buy another Galaxy4 Samsung. Identical, the girl said. It may be physically, but the new apps nearly sent me spare as I tried to learn the new one’s and download them. It took a while and everyone and then I remember one that I had previously used and decide whether I want it again.
In the midst of all that I chose to buy a Samsung tablet – and had to learn that. All the while I was trying to catch up on an amazing workload.
In the midst of learning the new devices, I discovered an App called “To Do List” – which I downloaded onto my tablet. Wow!! Has it made life easy for me. It’s funny as I am a big “To Do List” person – usually have a notepad, but am finding this one great. It is called the Ultimate To Do List but I have not upgraded to the “Ultimate” bit.
It has made me more organised and freed me up to do some writing. I’m actually going “great guns” on some work that I am keen to finish.
I went to Adelaide for the Adelaide Writer’s Festival – though only spent one morning there. Just a couple of days in my home city, and then back to Brisbane.
I am working on a program for doing Oral Histories – have done a couple of interviews and am planning to get out and about to promote it. More work to do.
