So there I was earlier, beavering away writing my previous post when one glass of white was followed by another of rosé ( on an empty stomach tbh ) and then I decided I wanted to buy ( by download ) Spain’s  ‘This Summer’s Greatest Hits’  album. It’s a tradition. I buy the current year’s pop compilation ( in Spanish ) every time I have a Summer holiday here.

I don’t quite know what happened and the next thing I knew I was staring at a blank screen. OH SHIT! And they say you can’t get malware on a MacBook. Okay okay. Stay calm. Just reboot. Three reboots later and it’s still the same . I take the battery out. Still no joy.

OK, factory reset it is then but I cannot remember how to do it. I get on to Mr Apple to learn that I can only do it with the boot disk….which is back in London in a drawer. Aargh!

So do I go to Gandia tomorrow to buy a new MacBook Air ? Can I afford it ? Well, my credit card can no problem. Do I need a new laptop ? Well, yes I genuinely do. Those of you who read my earlier posts will have realised that the machine I have been using ( from 2007 ) really isn’t up to the job and is on its last legs. 

OR do I use my iPhone?  At least it’s fast. So here we are having a test drive on writing a blog post on the phone. So far so good.

I’ll sleep on the big decision if this post is OK.

Why on earth did I download whatever it was? 

IDIOT!
