Exploring life experiences at home and beyond – Destination Happiness





“Mum my organ isn’t working!”

Hitting the keys– no sound. Why always on Christmas morning? Why can’t Santa leave toys that work? Just once!!

The roast is cooking, minutes before pork crackling becomes char, potatoes crunchy enough to be mistaken for pork crackling.

Remove the grey selector. It cracks as I pull it. Nothing out of place. Remove the keyboard to see the wiring. Plastic tearing as I prise it off. I ponder the maze. I can’t fix this.

I glance at the power point in the “OFF”.

Guess I didn’t heed” IF IT AIN”T BROKE DON’T FIX IT !


Author: Travelling Macs

A mum to 2 grown up children who always make me proud, a wife and a full time school teacher. I love eating great food but am not motivated to cook. Love traveling around this great country in which I live. Often found traveling with my husband Brian. I write for pleasure and if it's read (and enjoyed) by others then that's a bonus! 2014 saw me begin the 'new' me. Working hard at leaving the fear of 'what if' behind and replacing it with YOLO adventures. :)

  1. Haha! Those power points in the off position were the bane of my existence when I lived in England. We don’t have that issue here in the States! Cute story.

  2. Reminds me of our rental house where there are rooms with two switches, one for the lights, the other for the outlets. I had something plugged in to charge and didn’t realize nothing was happening. 🙂 Welcome to the Fictioneers, by the way.


  3. Dear Macs,

    Welcome to Friday Fictioneers. I guess, having never been to the UK, I wouldn’t have known what a power points were. Since Dreaminofobx commented it makes more sense. Cute story. I look forward to reading more from you.



    • Hi Rochelle ,
      Thanks for dropping by after reading my story. I only just found the Friday fictioneer but I’m glad I did.i love writing fiction.
      It’s funny how despite how small the world is in connection it is still large in its little differences. I’m Australian, guess we got ‘power points’ from the British.

  4. I would do something like that. Not known for my common sense, you see. 😦

  5. “If it ain’t broke…” Now I wonder if that’s how that saying came to be in the first place. 🙂

I enjoy reading comments so don't forget to add one please :)
