Still offline.... boo hoo

Hello -I'm still offline. It will now aparantly be a further 10-15 working days before Orange can send out my internet box etc. So I've found a pub with free broadband access and will be heading there of an evening next week to while away a few hours catching up with my friends.

Keep thinking I'll find it easier as time goes on, but there are so many thousands of things I used to use the internet for that make life more convenient that I am hating every single second without my connection. The major ones have been: I was an hour late for a rehearsal last week because I couldn't do an aa routefinder search and have no sense of direction.... I couldn't book train tickets to see my wee sister... although currently this is a good point as Ma and Pa booked them for me and I am therefore £50 richer (temporarily).

Missing you all!!!! Promise to visit you soon x

I remember when I was without internet connection for a week. I almost had a nervous breakdown!

I would go crazy being offline that long. Bummer.

Contact Mimi if you'd like to participate in promoting peace globes this year. Hope to see you there!

Have a great weekend!

Oh yes it's very frustrating without Internet connection, but on the other hand I would love to sit in a pub ! Welcome back (even if it's only half of you, lol)

Well, I second everything everyone else's said... look forward to your grand re-entrance!

So, what did you spend the £50 on instead, then, eh? :-D

I didn't know anywhere gave free internet access - it's great you've still got a place to connect up, even for a bit... does this mean every time you write, you're going to write double? :-)
