'The Phone Company' Frustrations.

Hi All,

I have not completely fallen off the face of the Earth, I have only just had the phone line 'properly' connected, and am still waiting on the internet. It has been the most frustrating 4 weeks without the internet and email and I'm quite livid with 'The Phone Company' for stuffing the whole connection up in the first place.

Trying to organise several meetings for various things, a business trip to Sydney, a family weekend away with other families and keep in touch with family and friends via facebook has been impossible.

I won't go into too many details about the saga, but I had the trenching, the connection and an internet provider all sorted before we moved so there would be no delays, no internet or email 'downtime' and everything would run smoothly. It has not and I'm now going to have to play 4 weeks catch up on email and blogs once I am fully on the air. I'm currently in the local Maccas, making use of their free snail's pace internet...but beggars can't be choosers and I have to make do!

We are 'mostly' settled in, but we can't get the cars in the garage due to the boxes and some furniture, I haven't been able to download any photos from my camera as my PC monitor refuses to start after being laid dormant for a year, and unable to upload pics with no internet. I can't get quotes for the front fence, driveway or plantation shutters due to having no internet or email, and the frustrations continue!! What on earth did we do before the internet!!

With any luck, I 'should' be back on air next week, and I can't wait to catch up on everyone's news. 4 weeks is a long time without blogs, not to mention extremely frustrating!

I'll be back soon with some photos!

Hi Stormy!
I have missed all your updates on your blog and I just cant WAIT to see what you have done inside your house. I know you have bought and stored the most beautiful pieces of furniture so you must be so excited to finally put them in your home. Looking forward to your pics when you are online (We also had big internet issues when we moved in and going to maccas was a favourite pastime for Mr B and the boys LOL

Hang in there girl. It does get better. Yes the phone companies leave a lot to be desired. I don't think I know one person who has had a smooth transition. Took us about 2 months... on dial up. A-M xx

Thankyou so much for your continued support, Ladies! I can now report my PC and email are back up and running! I no longer am forced to use the laptop, so I can now upload some new photos! It's still very disorganised, but we are slowly getting there!

Life appears to be returning to some form of 'normality'!! We love our home, but it still feels like we are intruding on someone elses!

PS: Great to see you around Mrs B, it's been a while!
