For one minute, walk outside, stand there, in silence, look up at the sky and contemplate how amazing life is.

I feel a bit of a fool for panicking when everything except my phone failed me. These things shouldn't happen to the likes of me 'cause I don't cope well when things don't go right.
When the laptop went into inaction I thought it was the mouse. Yes, I still use a mouse!! I changed the battery, thinking that would solve things, but IT DIDN'T. At first I thought the laptop had packed up as well because the mouse wouldn't work on it.
I knuckled under and persevered in an attempt to work the thing without the mouse. It was like groping in darkness because I was a 'remote mouse' lady who had forgotten how to work the damn machine without one.
I tried unsuccessfully not to panic but that didn't work either and I feel ashamed to have bothered people when all that was wrong was weather interference. You would think someone in authority would have tapped me on the shoulder and given me the awful news instead of watching me go into an almighty flap.
Well, this morning I had another look and guess what.... EVERYTHING WORKED.
According to my neighbour the whole area where we live was deprived of computer access. Something to do with ice!
I think I should ask for compensation for a damaged brain. Okay, I promise not to panic in future, but time will tell.
