Weekend Coffee Share: I factory reset my phone

a cup of coffee, a magazine and a potted plant with pink flowers. The text reads weekend coffee share, I factory reset my phone (and other stories)

Hello again. Have you ever factory reset your phone? I will be talking about that later. Meanwhile, I am back after a short break from publishing any blog posts. I have been writing lots of drafts though, so plenty of new content is coming…

Ice cream anyone?

Ok, so, if we were having coffee we would definitely be talking about the weather and complaining about the heatwave! We had record breaking temperatures this week in the UK, and it was extremely uncomfortable. Now we have rain in the forecast for most of next week, but I am not complaining.

Family Time

We had some family time recently, and it was lovely to catch up. My son had more surgery not long ago; still trying to fix long term problems caused by his cancer diagnosis. Incidentally, I am going to rewrite the blog pages relating to his cancer eventually. It is just a really difficult subject for me to address. Anyway, he’s getting on as well as he can be, so I am grateful for that. Things will never be normal though, and that is what people often fail to understand.

Technology Fails

If we were having coffee I would be moaning about my phone. It is only 9 months old and has recently developed a fault whereby the screen freezes and the only way to get out of it is ā€¦ yes ā€¦ you’ve guessed it ā€¦ turn it off and then on again.

I have got to take it back to the shop, but I feel that it’s going to be so much hassle and I keep hoping the problem will go away. I have tried a factory reset though and it did nothing to make it better. It just made me sad that I had lost all the conversation history I had with my son.

What’s Next?

I have lots of new craft posts coming up and also some great Wordless Wednesday (photo only) posts to share. Please make sure you are following me so that you don’t miss anything.

If you would like to leave me a comment, you can do so below without the need for a WordPress account. I read a post on Twitter recently where a blogger said that they would rather have no comment at all if the reader wasn’t going to leave meaningful feedback. That’s not me though! I would love it if you just said hello or whatever šŸ™‚

I think this is a quicker coffee this time, so apologies if it feels like I’m rushing, but, I need to finish some other posts and get them scheduled. Thank you so much for reading!

    Lots of obstacles this year!!! I bought a whole new phone and got a new number…but on purpose. I have been trying to write from amore emotional level and have found that is draining. Right there with you. I saw the post on Twitter too about the comments. Sometimes people are moved by your writing but don’t have the words to articulate it. All comments are welcome onmy end as well. Glad we could catch up today

      Thanks so much for commenting! I often struggle with finding the right words and so I might just say “thanks for sharing” or maybe just leave an emoji so that the writer knew I had visited their blog. Now I think twice! I have had the same mobile phone number since I got my first phone about 20 years ago, and it would be too complicated for me to get a new number, but I understand that it suits some people to change their phone number. I am glad we could catch up too šŸ™‚
