Feels like we have been away for ever. I think it must have been the high level of activity. I find that active holidays seem to go slow and lazing holidays go fast?
Still on dial up back here at the 'Shoe Box'. Disclaimer: I say 'Shoe Box' in the most endearing way..... it's our home now..... we love it here, it's big enough...but a 'Shoe Box' compared to the last place. We're a nickname family so 'Shoe Box' it is until someone comes up with something better. I have comment moderation (without anon) on again so 'nasties' leave me alone on this one ok!!!
So Telstra where is my ADSL modem? 3 weeks ago you said it was in the mail, 3 business post days away. I am about to call you again for ..oh.. the 11th time. Last call was 58 minutes in duration, I kid you not... something about their computer not being able to 'bundle' at my address. The time before they kept calling me Mrs Focker (no joke)... as the number was still attached to someone else. They asked for my residential address and I said, "only if you promise not to send anything there in the form of mail, as I only want my PO Box as my mailing address". Guess what was waiting in my mailbox when I got home?... mail from Telstra... but NO modem! So the objective of my day today is to get one. I think I will start perched on the counter in the nearest Telstra shop. I will stay there until someone throws a modem at me. Now if only I could access the internet and look up the nearest Telstra shop!
Oh and super P.S. Katrina has made over my Cape Cod Designs bloggy too. I did get a glimpse of it when I had internet access on my holiday! ... but now the page takes too long to load.... on dial up. Let me know how it's looking! I kid you not... that one was only one draft... exactly what I asked for... no changes!... she's so good!
