I’ve had a lovely review from Betty for my latest poetry book, Pregnant with Death.
Thanks chockymuch, Betty 🙂
And flip. The reason I’m quiet on here at the moment is because my laptop has died and I don’t like to use this WordPress app on my phone too often. It’s just so finicky to operate.
The laptop has had a good life (about 12 years old) and has seen me through some experiences, helped me publish six books and we’ve made many friends through WordPress over the years.
So hip hip hooray to you my friend and farewell.
Hopefully it won’t be too long before I find a replacement but these things can take time as there’s so many out there nowadays!
Thanks again, Betty!
Why am I so relieved? It’s because I’ve found a file I thought had vanished.
My laptop has been blowing a storm for a while now and has crashed several times and I’ve had to reinstall Windows a couple of times too. After this last crash it’s been working for a few weeks but still blows like me climbing a mountain!
Anyhow, I lost a file which contains over 300 of my little poetic quotes which sometimes pop into this coal house of a brain of mine. And yes I have everything backed up to a portable harddrive but the file was missing from there too … until a few minutes ago.
I operated a particular search on the documents folder for the word ‘teddy’ and there it was nestling all laid back and eating a honey sandwich in the company of a totally random folder which of course I hadn’t looked in as it would take me ages to open every folder.
So during one of these crashes the file must’ve been moved by the system for reasons of its own divising, so
