Since last December I have been re-installing my life. Mr. Swiss (age 82) had so many problems I do not know where to begin. Walking was always difficult, and then he managed to get pneumonia and afterwards he broke his hip joint. He was in hospital for a week and then transferred to a clinic in Switzerland to help to recover after having a new hip replacement. .He was away for a month until January and his health did not improve. I had daily visits from the care people only in the morning, but otherwise I was on my own. Eventually I was near a nervous breakdown with the stress and Mr. Swiss was transferred to a golden oldie home, luckily just along the street to where I live. And now I am reinstalling my life.
And then I lost my iPhone. It was found, but was the victim of a car driving over it, so for the past week I have been re-installing a new iPhone. I am now nearly there, actually I now have everything I need, but I so like my app for buying goods at the local store, without using cash. I can still do it with the card, but to install the programme for smooth runnings I need this little machine to digest my postcard and for that I have to enter the code it supplies me with. That is no problem, but this machine runs on a battery which has a life of a year and yes, the battery has died. I called the post and they are sending me a new machine which I will have in two days. OK not so bad, it is free and I can put my plastic card into the machine at the cash desk in the store and the bill is paid without cash in the meanwhile. It is much easier when I have the app. The assistant at the till just uses her pistol and aims it at my phone and then everything is done. As soon as I receive the new gadget I will reinstall all my details.RDP Tuesday: Reinstall
