I know that expression “First World Problems” has become something of a cliche. However, I like it because it helps me to put problems into perspective. Things have been going a little awry here, and they were starting to make me very grumpy. Then I realised that they were First World Problems, and easily, if frustratingly, dealt with.
The main problem was that my big computer decided not to start up. It was my own fault. We were having ceiling fans installed and needed to turn off the power. I had forgotten to turn off the computer before the power went off and it had a little hissy fit. I had a much bigger one when I found out that I couldn’t get it started.
It was a very simple thing, and the technician said that the computer probably fixed itself in the car on the way to the shop. I just wish the computer or the first technician had told me that when I dropped it off a week ago.
It’s not as though I didn’t have computer access. The iPad was just fine, but I am used to doing somethings on the big computer. (See what I mean about First World Problems?) One of those was blogging, which doesn’t work well for me on the WordPress App. Does any one else have that problem? So I haven’t been blogging and I haven’t been reading your blogs….now it is full steam ahead!
I must tell you my exciting news ~ tomorrow I am going to meet up with not one, but two bloggy friends! It turns out that both Kate and Elladee are in Melbourne and we are going to have lunch in the Botanic Gardens. It will be a delight to meet the wonderful, generous, interesting women that live those blogs. What fun!
