Still a Blogger

to do list

I know it’s a while since my last blog post and that I have blogged less often in recent times but I am still very much a blogger and I will get back on track.

The reason for the slow down on the posting front is that I have long-ish to-do list. Things on that list are in danger of segueing from stuff that needs to be done soon into stuff that needed to be done yesterday so before that happens, and I go from mildly distracted to stressed to insanity, I better devote most of my time and energy to getting them done.

It’s Sod’s law that just when I need it most I lost my mobile phone. *weeps*. It’s the first time I have lost a phone and I am cross with my self, partly for being careless, but mostly because it’s an iPhone and if I had switched on location finder I would have been able to pinpoint its whereabouts using the Find my iPhone app on my Macbook *kicks self*. Natch I retraced my footsteps but sadly no joy.

Still it’s not the worst thing that could have happened. I replaced my phone today and I am thankful that I didn’t also lose all the contact details, photos and apps that I had on my old phone as I backed them up not so long ago and I was able to restore them via iTunes to my new phone.

I will be back, most likely at the end of next week.

In the meantime Happy Weekend!

  1. Oh no… losing a phone is the WORST! I got an iPhone last November and I often think of how lost I would be without it (note to self to backup contacts in the event of such a mishap). I hope that you continue to make progress on your to-do list over the weekend πŸ™‚

    • Yes losing a phone is maddening but I am so glad I had it backed as recreating what was on would have been the pits. It’s so worth doing a back up every so often.

      Thanks for your good wishes on the to-do list. πŸ˜‰

  2. So sorry you lost your phone and you remind me to back up my iphone. Good lesson!! Glad you got a new phone and will be back blogging soon.

    • Thank you so much. I was so glad that I backed up my phone not so long age. Since I got the new one I am constantly checking to make sure I still have but I expect that will wear off after a few days. πŸ˜‰

  3. See you soon with your DONE IT list πŸ™‚

  4. My phone broke 3 times already for very different reasons so I know what you are going through! But you are smarter than me: I have never backed anything up in my whole life. πŸ˜‰
    Enjoy the weekend, B!

    • A phone that broke three times that must have been real hassle Francesca. They are so hard to live without. Your stay in Italy is probably coming to an end soon so I wish you a safe journey back to America.

      Take care and enjoy the rest of the weekend. πŸ˜‰

    It used to be that mislaying your purse would have been the heart-stopper. Hope you are soon back on track – and good luck with that long list of “to dos”. It’s worth it!

  6. Dang, losing a phone (or breaking it) nowadays is a huge pain in the neck, not only for the temporary lack of accessibility that it entails, but also for the huge number of information, images, contacts, apps, whatever that it contains. At the very least the cloud is your friend in retrieving most if not all of such information.
    Sorry about that incident, B, but glad to hear you got a new phone and you have been able to salvage most of your information.
    Be well,
    Stefano

    • Hi Stefano,

      Yes, it was great to salvage most of information – praise be for data stored in a cloud. What would we do without the wonders of modern technology. Altho that said I sometimes think it would be nice to go back to simpler times when we weren’t always connected.

      I hope you had a good weekend.

      All the very best. B. πŸ˜‰

      • I am in the same conundrum, B: technology is your friend… to a point! For certain, our ancestors were less stressed out than we are. Although we have to recognize that most of them generally had to go through at least one major conflict during their lifetimes so all in all we are still better off I guess… πŸ˜‰

      • Our ancestors had such tough physically hard lives’ – and yes you are right they usually saw one major conflict in their lifetimes when battles were much more spread out than they are now. If only we could put an end to war. #wishfulthinking πŸ˜‰

      • You’re right, dear B… Someone said so a few years back, remember:

        Imagine there’s no countries
        It isn’t hard to do
        Nothing to kill or die for
        And no religion too
        Imagine all the people
        Living life in peace…

        It is utopia, but nonetheless nice to think about it now and then πŸ˜‰

      • Dear Stefano,

        I wonder if anyone who listens intently to Imagine ever forgets the sentiment the song expresses.

        I love, love, love those words and if only …

        Yes, Utopia but it’s good to dream sometimes. πŸ˜‰

        Good wishes from B. πŸ˜‰

  7. Just take your time getting caught up and before you know it you’ll be back!

  8. Glad you’ve replaced your phone – nightmare scenario if you’d lost all your contacts. Look forward to future blog posts but no pressure!

  9. Sorry to hear that you lost your phone. I don’t exactly loose mine…sometimes I just don’t know where it is. When my husband gets home, I’ll tell him my problem and he calls me and I track down the ringing. πŸ™‚

  10. It is not a good thing to lose a phone. You are lucky that you had backed it up and were able to put your things on a new phone. Nice blog.
