It's been a very steep learning curve since April.
So will try an experiment of a new post.
Now, I've decided from time to time to create new posts on RESTLESSINFRANCE blog...
It's all changed!!!!!!
For a moment I thought new mails, phone numbers, phone, modem had lost access... but it was just me not taking time to consider.
LIFE is rushing past at speed... too much to do in too little time. I am trying to maintain calm, not get exhausted, depressed, have a panic attack or let the groin / femur and shoulder tendonitis or eye headache issues mess body and mind at my age!!!!!!
Yesterday taking vaccine 2, the pharmacist praised my improved verbal French language, when I told him the challenges I have had with ORANGE insdtallation of a new live box and my first ever smartphone at the age of 72, so having a new contract when I would rather not do smartphones and grapple with learning to be a technician! After 17 years it needs to gain from immersion, plus, having challenges that i would dearly love to simplify!
Buying a mobile from Apple, speaking French and English, via UK Greece and France with Apple and my bank when hey sent me two ...oh la la observed about 10 hours of time and is a long & tangled tale.
Orange has abosrbed probably at least 15 hours of my time this week not to mention last week .....but problems are bneing resolved. Another appointment tomorrow ...
This afternoon, another issue - so I called technical helpline again , and the sending of mails to a certain personal mail address will stop tomorrow and return to the courriel address which they had for commercial techno stuff!!!!!!!
When she had reassured me that ALL WAS GOOD, I said I was on a step learning curve of learning and understanding... She praised me for my age and said she wishes to me like me when she is my age and able to succeed with learning at this age!
It's only a number... but yesterday I went to the funeral of a man who died aged 77 and my grief for that person and his wife who will live alone has rather discombobulated me 'cos I could see her frightened aloneness as she stood in almost disbelief that a well revered human beung is reduced to ashes in an urn under the ground.
I dont want to be trapped like that. I wish my ashes to be released.
