Sunday’s Blog


After dinner last night I sat down to write my blog.  disaster – no Broadband in fact no internet, no phone nada.  I couldn’t work out what had happened.  I had been using both the internet and the phone before dinner, so what had happened.

sick computer

A call to Telecom was quickly answered – sometimes we hang on for ages before getting connected, but not this time.  A very helpful man checked my line and said that there was a phone off the hook and would I please check.  I did this with no change to his reading.  He then asked me to go and unplug all the phones and the internet.  This done his reading was still that a phone was off the hook.  So a technician was booked for today.  So apologies – no internet so no blog.  The technician did come at the appointed time today and unplugged all the phones and plugged them in again and all came right.  Oh the joys of technology.’

What else to complain about?  Well yesterday morning when I turned on the computer I was amazed (and delighted) to see just how prolific Lenore Diane had been.  I really enjoy her posts, the glimpses into her family life with her boys and those other thoughts that race around that great brain.  I counted 23 posts from her.  Of course, it was just WordPress having a hissy fit.  Only one from was Lenore Diane.  But I enjoyed reading all the other posts  whoever they were really from.  Thank you!

Nothing much has changed today except that she posted only 20 new posts.  Are you slacking off Lenore Diane?

And the rest of the Antibes adventure?  Well watch this space.  It will be continued tomorrow.

  1. Technology can be so much fun–as long as it works! Then it can be a bit unruly. 🙂 Glad you’re back online.


  2. Sometimes the vagaries of technology make me dizzy! Glad you are back posting on Sunday even though it’s not Saturday. 🙂


  3. Wish the WordPress would pitch a hissy fit for me. I can’t think of a darned thing for my next post.


  4. It’s frustrating when the internet ‘breaks’. It’s like it only works if the stars are aligned just right. Glad you’re up and running again.


  5. Glad you’re back. I’ve had more phone problems in the 10 years I’ve lived here than in all previous years combined. And I’ve never been able to understand why the first thing they tell you to do is unplug all your phones. Like what does that accomplish?


  6. The frustrating thing Thomas is that apart from climbing the telegraph pole, I did all that the technician did but it only worked for him. As an aside, I wonder how he would have coped if I had lived in a new development with power and phone lines underground!
