one of the last tasks, load up my ipod with cool audio books. turn on the ipod and…
it’s blank. nothing. nada. WHERE IS THE HAPPY LITTLE APPLE SMILEY FACE?????
i can’t live without this ipod! ARGH. especially when travelling, absolutely everything is on here, all music, books, my life! i need this to make jewellery, to make glass beads, to drive to florida, to sail around, QUICK run to the nearest ipod doctor! fast!
2 hours later … apparently ipod batteries aren’t indestructible. they last approximately 400 charges, and since my baby is 4 years old i’m sure i’ve gone through them. also be warned, ipods do not like cold, never leave an ipod in a car overnight if you live in a freezer. after a reset (press the centre and the top at the same time) my baby came back to life long enough to accept a plug-in. i know the battery is on the last legs so until it can be replaced i’ll plug in at all times. keep your fingers crossed, it’s still alive. i’m saved.
