Internet down!

This morning, for some reason best known to itself, my computer dongle wasn’t picking up the WiFi signal. So I had to find other things to do rather than spend vast amounts of time reading blogs, the Ship etc.

So I planned all next week’s lessons, wrote loads of emails (to send when the internet connection was back up), wrote a letter to my mum, sorted out some overdue paperwork, and did a bit of job research. I made a delicious Chorizo and vegetable clafoutis for lunch, and cleared the kitchen.

Then Mr D came home from work. We had lunch, and I swear that the computer knows when its Master is in the house, as I tried (for the umpteenth time) to connect to the internet, and, why lookee here, I’m connected! So I immediately spend the rest of the afternoon wasting time reading blogs, the Ship etc. And fighting off Bib-the-evil-kitten, and (let’s be fair) applying for a job (or rather, asking a company if they have any jobs.)

I really think I should stop turning on the computer as a matter of course in the morning. I find all those lovely, interesting bookmarked blogs too irresistable! I might find I get other things done if I leave the screen blank!

Oh well. Thanks to my IT technician: Mr D, psychically mending computers since 2005

Here’s a photo of Bib when she was tiny, so everone can go “Aaaaaah!”

    Kitten adoration over, thank you for the opportunity!

    I have those blogging breaks, where I state in writing that I won’t be visiting anyones’ blogs… telling everyone is the only way I can stick to my resolution! And of course, loss of internet connection is also very effective…

    Jane, this site doesn’t do followers, I’m afraid. You’ll just have to come on over now and then to see if I’ve written anything.

    Bib is now about 6 or 7 months old. We’re not sure exactly how old she was when I adopted her – the vet reckoned 4 weeks by size, but 5 or 6 by developmental stages. I brought her home on 1st June this year. Sometimes she is gorgeous and sweet, and other times she’s the Devil-in-a-little-furry-suit!

    Typing this with a very large and heavy thirteen year old Charlie lying the length of my right arm!

    Whenever I have been on holiday without my laptop, I always resolve to limit its use when I get home. Doesn’t seem to work that way, though.
