My Mac isn't working properly, the track pad has a mind of its own and its freezing after twenty minutes of use. Its frustrating, how can one write! I've spent far too much time looking for a solution myself. It might be the battery at fault? The machine is sixteen months old, I'm disappointed.

Progress on the novel skidded to a stop, Word is affected, as is any keystroke. I can tell you there have been times when I've wanted to chuck the Mac out of the window. Never mind the 'Maccy Love' although to be fair, I've had issues with Windows PC's and laptops in the past. They are all rubbish when they go wrong! I really wanted to write another word, in place of 'rubbish' but good manners prevailed there. Not much makes me feel as helpless as not being able to fix my laptop.
I didn't meet up with my friends either, I was disappointed, one of them is unwell, and I understand all about that, we will reschedule in 2014, when hopefully things will be resolved. If that friend is reading this, then I'm hoping you are well on the mend now.
The family meal did go ahead, it was lovely to get together, and the food was lovely too. Its increasingly hard to get everyone together these days. Next time will be Christmas. Ugh! I've mentioned the 'C' word, not usually uttered until December where it belongs don't you agree?
Work last week was horrendous! Everything I touched seemed to be problematic, mostly I just get on with it. I'm in a service industry. Stuff happens! But, if I'm honest, it started to get to me, and the week was miserable.
I won't even mention the washing machine! Albeit to say, I now have a new one installed, and the service at Curry's is excellent, no wonder I keep returning...
On a positive, I managed the flash fiction challenge for Phoenix Writers, its not too bad writing 200 words on your phone. The meeting was well attended as usual, everyone eager to read, and offer constructive critique. I'm off the hook now, I won't be back in the Chair for two weeks as I have a prior engagement.
The week ahead is busy. Full of scheduled stuff, mostly work. Its hard to juggle it all, so I'll be happy with any writing this week, I need to get my Mac fixed, this is my priority. After that I'll rework two chapters of my novel.
I hope you week is good, and happy, and you are productive!
