Anyone would think that the world was ending. Our Internet connection at home has gone 'wrong' so there is a painfully slow connection, which prevents almost all but the most basic stuff from downloading.
The children are bereft. They are in mourning for their online lives. J and I are also suffering, but are trying to put on a brave face and pretend that it doesn't matter. Afterall, we lived without the 'net for years, didn't we?
J called our ISP yesterday, and apparently it isn't their fault, but a fault with our phone line. Telstra will contact us within 3 business days (yes, 3 days!) to arrange a time to come and look at it.
This means that it could be some time before we have functional Internet access at home. Dire times indeed. I feel quite hopelessly depressed about this, which in itself makes me feel worried.
How can I be so dependent?
Are you utterly dependent on the Internet?
How would you cope?
I'm thinking about moving in to my office for the duration.
(Just kidding.... sort of)
Added to this, it has been raining heavily for what seems like days.
I realise that no internet and lots of rain are not really cause for whining, but I do need to whine just a little.
Anyway. Due to the rain and vaguely autumnal temperatures, I’ve been wearing jeans instead of my usual skirt uniform.
Navy J Crew sweater, Red Leon & Harper jeans, Repetto shoes. Grey Everlane shirt, new Rag & Bone jeans and new* Ferragamo shoes.
Note my hair got rained on, so my sleek, straight and shiny ‘do from the hair salon is now back to its usual wavy chaos. Never Mind.
*Ferragamo shoes that I got from the Op Shop (Thrift store, charity shop for non-Aussies). They were brand new so I snapped them up. They are a touch ‘old lady’, but I love the gold heels so I really don’t care.
Finally, I’m suffering a skirt conundrum. I like all of these, but am not sure which to get.
