Just as i settled in for a quiet weekend of movies, blogs & mercifully only one party on . . . where did my internet connectivity go?? Seeing i had a tonne of sewing, i kept myself busy in the studio, watched Atonement (torture for an Army wife) but by Sunday i was detemined to get a connection!! Well, 3 hours of my life i'll never get back, spread over telephone calls to India, Malaysia, Bigpond-customer-service-land . . . i finally had to accept i needed a tech out to the house, "how long would that take??" i moaned to Gupta . . . i miss blog land & business emails might help you know, run my business . . . oh, only 20 minutes!! Bless the lovely young man who flew in, fixed everything, including wireless router, had to listen to me talk lovingly & longingly to my husband on the phone, while he reconfigured the childrens' laptops . . . 2 hours pass & i'm still offering him food & drink (i was starving) . . . i stopped short of asking him if he needed the bathroom before he left.
Ahhh . . . welcome back internet!! So long $179 call out fee!!
It did rather cap off my weekend with children behaving poorly, missing my husband terribly, running out of eggs - all things can lead to tears you know . . . surely Monday morning will work out better?? I know, i'll treat myself to a new hair cut, lovely!! But no, planets not aligned, even though i got a walk up appointment . . . the fire alarms went off in the shopping centre, "please evacuate". So i did the groceries while talking to my sister on my mobile, her fault, she called, she asked how my day was going . . . life is back to strawberry goodness again. Seeing i only had time to pop a few strawberries in my mouth for lunch, on they way out the door for school pick up - i thought this Reprodepot print was rather perfect.
