Do you remember in my last post when I tried to give money back to the bank, had a leak in the kitchen and found hornets’ nests ? Well, it’s got a whole lot worse !
A couple of days after publishing the last post and while I was having fun answering your comments, my laptop produced a million vertical lines, made mechanical clunking noises, went black and would not switch off.
After a night of “praising” my Dell laptop I sent it away to be fixed locally. As it didn’t work, the village Spanish computer man either sent it to Dell repair in Madrid, or to a beach lounger on the Costa, or to a laptop dancing club. Who knows !
What to do ? No laptop !!! Arghh !!!
The cats don’t care.
I do have a Tablet … in a box !
I bought it a year ago and looked at it. The cable sockets were so tiny that an ant with a magnifying glass couldn’t see them and none of my laptop cables would fit. Too big !
I switched it on. My vibrating hands tapped, swiped, squeezed and stretched. Weird things happened. Nothing did what I wanted. Almost becoming an expensive frisbee I returned the Tablet to its box.
A year passed, until now !
No laptop means no blogging …. an unboxed Tablet is a 1% chance of blogging especially as I have to start from scratch. Oh boy !
I spent half a day trying to sign in to Gmail. I knew my password was right … “gspot” … The word corrector had changed my email address first letters of my name to capitals, not all letters in lower case and I hadn’t noticed ! This Tablet WILL, by the time this is published, become a very expensive frisbee !
Via a Google Search I found my blog. I spent another half day trying to find where to Log In. A stupid WP monkey hid it in the small “Follow” box at the bottom right of the page by clicking on the three dots. I did remember my password … “Won’tPress” …
So here I am, almost at the end of drafting this post. I really do need to be a 12yo Tablet whizzkid and have nearby a 45 (not inches)-24-36 woman on whom I can tap, slide, squeeze and stretch (not necessarily in that order)…. my Tablet resting on her 45 degree slope.
I digress. The writing on blog pages are either too tiny for an ant with a magnifying glass to read or it zooms in to 3 words on a page. My vibrating hands !! Oh boy !
(Insert ant with magnifying image here)
Can’t do it.
On trying to upload an ant with a magnifying glass image to Add New in the Media Library, WordPress said that I needed their special App for my device. I followed the instructions like the good boy I am. Pressed “Install”. Nothing happened. In small red writing underneath, it exclaimed with glee >>>
! Your device does not exist
Silly me ! Of course it doesn’t exist ! It’s a very expensive frisbeeeeeee !
At least we can communicate, can’t we ? Sort of !

My next post will be in November as this Tablet is making me crazy !! No change there then 🙂
