My Life Of Late

Sat: Fireworks lit the laptop’s screen. Graphics chip. I’d bought a new machine the day before Lockdown closed our shops. But all had seemed well and so…

Sun: Powered the laptop. It groaned and whined. The fan. I persisted and meanwhile downloaded a year’s worth of Window’s updates to my new laptop.

Weds: Sister phone. My father has tested positive for Covid

Thurs: Phone call to say the owner of my property is selling. I have to find another home.

Apologies for not reading your posts. My life has become a crucible of late. I’ll catch up as soon as.

100 words written for Sammi’s Weekend Writing Prompt: Crucible.

    I’m sorry you have to find a new home! I’ll also say a prayer for your dad. I hope you don’t have a lot to move, and that you find something quickly! The good news is your computer works now so you can use it to look for a new place!

    Oh wow, when it rains it pours! I am so sorry to hear that you’re having to deal with all this stress! Do what you can, stay as calm as you can be, because what else can you do? I hope your father is okay, and I hope the rest all resolves well and quickly too.

  11. I’m just getting caught up myself and have nothing new to add to this thread except more prayers for all your situations. I was just thinking how much I enjoy your area via your photos. You’re right, though, you will get a brighter, warmer place nearby. Hope your dad continues to improve.

    Hi Crispina! Wish that was all written for the prompt. Hope everything is fine by now. All the best for 2021.

    • No, it wasn’t written for the prompt. It’s the truth of that week. Things are beginning to improve. My father is pulling through. The laptop works! And I shall find somewhere else to live… maybe somewhere warmer, with better views from the windows
