About Me

My photo

My Blog SCRIBBLE AND EDIT reflects my love of creative writing, design, literature and film. Check out my Poems & haiku, Romantic Flash Fiction; Blogfest Entries; Blog Awards and other prose and Flash Fiction. Do bear with me, as I will reciprocate with those genuine commenters on my blog.  BTW I sometimes withhold comments for challenges until later. Comments about the post are much appreciated. Thank you.
Comments based on others' comments can lead to misunderstandings that spread like whispers!

The only SURE way for me to follow you back is if you leave a comment. However, if your Blog has a black background and white writing then it makes my eyes squiffy...

Throwing caution to the winds

I was busy catching up on my blog commenting when the worst happened. I contracted a  t r o j a n  m a l w a r e  v i r u s.

It was so invidious that I could not remove it in the normal way and had to switch off and rush it to the computer hospital where it's been for the last few days.

While it allowed me to get on with lots of non blog/computer things AND I managed to lose some weight by upping my NEAT and keeping on my feet most of the day, it did bother me how easy it is to get these nasties.

I admit I didn't follow my normal protocol when I notice strange occurences during my Internet browsing AND so there is a lesson to be learned there. I was so behind with comments and reciprocating visits to others' sites that I threw caution to the winds and am now seriously out of pocket. I truly hope you don't get it. I'm back now feeling slightly wary, though.

I am currently reading Into the Darkest Corner
by Elizabeth Haynes, which is quite intense...
