It’s been months since I joined Instagram. Yesterday, after months of trial, getting cross, error, and giving up, I finally worked out how to get pics onto my account. You have to use your mobile phone. For someone hopelessly devoted to larger machines – desktop or laptop or even netbook; I’m not fussy – this was an entirely new concept and I’m not sure how I’ll cope there, but that’s a story for the future. We’ll see how I get on over the next few months.
Winter has arrived in N.E. Switzerland and in a lot of other places too, including my website (you may only see it on a desktop pc, but it’s snowing very gently here – I love it! Wish it was only snowing very gently outside, too…) Over the next few weeks we’ll be getting the site organised for next year, so blog posts will be a touch infrequent for the rest of 2017, tho’ I’m planning a ‘Swiss Christmas’ one in a week or two.
Meantime, my books have various promotions and special offers coming up around Christmas, so watch out for some bargains. Most importantly, The Saturday Secret has had its last proper deal as a charity book, and I have sent a Fr.300.- donation to Doctors without Borders.
This makes a total of Fr.500.- altogether – slightly more than it has brought in so far, but I’m confident that by the time its year is up in February, we’ll have reached the magic number.
I’ll leave you with some picture-perfect Swiss snow. If you’ve never travelled by ski-lift, this is what it looks like, and no, I didn’t take it…
