A Service Interruption Announcement

Hello and Sorry for the lack of updates and unanswered comments. It's been 3 weeks since we moved into the new home and we're still without a phone line nor broadband for that matter - no home phone = no broadband since everyone's on adsl over here.

In the last 3 weeks I have been leeching internet wherever possible from friends - carrying my trustee laptop with me wherever/whenever I go over to someone's house and from the nice dude 2 floors down who offered and set us up with his wireless connection. Unfortunately, the problem with leeching is that you get access whenever the router was up and running or when you're at your friend's apartment. This has lead to a shorter presence in the www and I've not been able to actively visit all of my favourite blogs nor update this little blog.

I won't bore you to death with my frustration of trying to get a phone line activated in our apartment. To summarise, my frustration = "BT CUSTOMER SERVICE SUCKS" - except for the 2 kind ladies who work on the phones at BT who were my saviour when I was at the point of releasing a flowery splurge of message to the next person who would be at the receiving end of my phone call.

In the mean time, here are some of my favourite photos (from travels and miscellaneous things) to fill the emptiness....

These things take time... looking forward to when you're back online and hoping you get some helpful customer service folks to move mountains for you!

Hey - I'm off to Spain today - barcelona! Malaga looks as if you had a ball. Just one question - what's that big glowing yellow ball in the sky?? :o)

Btw, you've been tagged!

Hope you are enjoying the new place! It gives me some time to read your archives, so there is never some wasted time!

Ah, getting things connected... good luck with it. When I first moved into my place it seemed to take FOREVER.

Thank you everyone for your lovely comments. I did get connected not long after that. But have just been ridiculously busy.

Things should quiet down now that our guest has left. Service shall resume shortly :)
