Still Down

The phone line that was supposed to be fixed yesterday still isn't. Apparently it's not just us - hundreds of homes in the area are supposed to have been affected - but that isn't helping much.

I'm helping organise my school reunion. It's this weekend. Most of the work is done but, geez a phone would come in handy right about now.

Also, my grandma passed away. She was 98 and had a stroke the week before so her death was not unexpected and was even something of a relief but again, a phone would sure come in handy so I can keep up with the funeral arrangement and general family stuff at this time.

We're at six days without a phone (or, obviously, a computer) now and it's VERY ANNOYING! It doesn't help that we don't get especially good mobile reception at home so half the time we can't make/don't get calls and when we can they drop out half way through a conversation anyway! Did I mention that it's VERY ANNOYING!!

Hi Mandij, since you don't have computer access at home, you are probably unaware that I spent 3 hours on Facebook last night and want to be your friend. Wanna be friends??? XXX Anne

Hmmm, do I really? LOL, I already accepted you as my friend, Anne. I'm sneaking in a look here and there at work, lucky my boss isn't as mean as yours ;-)

Sorry to hear about your loss. 98 seems like your Grandmother really lived her life, though?

German Telekom is not only a telecommunications company, it´s merely a swearword over here. I sure do know what you´re talkin about, gnahhhh. Good luck from here that it doesn´t take literally ages to get back to proper telecommunication!

Murphy, sure it hits you know!

This is really strange...we are experiencing a great deal of synchronicity at the moment. My grandmother passed away a few weeks ago...3 weeks before her 96th birthday, and a week after a minor stroke - a not unexpected and finally very gentle death. So, love to you - more than most at the moment, I know what you are feeling. xxx

I'm so sorry about your Grandma. I sure do miss mine. Take care. Sheila

Red Dirt Mummy said...

Thanks, Iris. She was looking forward to her telegram from the queen at 100 but as Offspring #1 says, "98 is really lots."

I'm hearing Twilight Zone music right now MM. Love right back at you.

Thanks so much Sheila.

If you want a free, objective way to check the reception in your area BEFORE you lock yourself with a specific carrier, you should really check out "Got Reception?" (http://www.gotreception.com).
