We all seem to be adapting to our new 'stay at home as much as possible' way of life. I think this will be the new normal certainly for me for a very long time. I won't be fighting to get to parks or beaches anytime soon. Or going on my foreign holiday in September.
Over the last month I have had cause to ring my bank, the council, my solicitor and energy provider. Non of them excepting anything other than emergency calls! I was able to email, message and have an online chat to sort my problem.
She can't do that. She doesn't have a mobile phone capable of receiving the internet. She doesn't have data on her mobile account or understand what broadband is. In her words 'she has never needed it '. But Lockdown has forced her think again. She will be ordering a new mobile phone once we can see people again. Her daughter and myself will be teaching her how to use it, when it's safe to do so. She is already terrified but I've assured her in the nicest way that playing with it will provide a huge learning curve, plus almost all devices are Idiot Proof!
Obviously we all use this sort of media to blog and I'll be the first to get frustrated when they change stuff. I'm not finding the new version blogger easy. I'll even hold my hands up to accidentally deleting some comments and I apologise for that. But imagine having to learn this because you have to. How many other people have been effected like this, I bet we all know someone.
Back soon. T x
