It seems technology hates me lately
My cellphone suddenly stopped recognising my SIM card. No SiM cards installed, it said.
I had to send it for repair. Then when I put the card in an alternative cellphone,( a dual SIM one), I typed the code for the other SIM and my phone got locked. I spent an hour going from one service provider to the other to get it unlocked.
Yes, because I actually ended up blocking both cards.
Never had so many troubles with those old phones who just made calls.

Last week my stepmother was admitted into the hospital because she was getting weaker by the day and they couldn’t find the source of the problem. They just knew she had a serious infection.
As if this wasn’t enough as a source of worry, my father depends a lot on her and it was pretty hard to find someone to take care of him. Luckily my stepmother’s nephew found a lady who checks up on him in the morning and in the evening.
Now my stepmother is finally out of the woods but she needs to go to a nursing home to be able to recover fully, which brings up again the issue of my father.
Pretty hard to find a solution when I live in Portugal and my father in France. Luckily I have family over there who are helping me but still…
It’s science in the summer time and I was on the waiting list for an activity called “science on stage”. I was number 44 in the waiting list so I wasn’t expecting to get in but last Tuesday I got a text saying my registration had been confirmed.
I thought it would be about the lighting and sound of the theatre but no. They were showing several science experiments like if it was a magic show. It was so much fun! One of my favourite was the electo pickle where they used a pickled cucumber to close an electrical circuit and lit up a light bulb .
This is my entry for this week’s lens-artists photo challenge.
The hallway of the hostel I stayed in in Porto during the Urban sketchers symposium. Amazingly high ceilings.
