My husband has been out bush for almost a month now in hot humid Brisbane & tries to call in every couple of days. I have to say technology has come a long way since the days when he'd go out & i wouldn't hear from him at all during an exercise, little babies or not (i'm possibly the world's more relaxed & patient wife). Skype is working a treat, the children can see his face & chatter away about their day, their new teachers, classrooms, friends, it's gorgeous & natural. I've love it, i can chat meaningfully & hand sew at the same time, glee!!
PS so good to be running at full internet speed again today, ah, i'm off to visit blogs, tally ho.
