And what a day to be back, because I’ve got a LOT to bitch about! Well, not a lot per se, but two very important things.
Firstly, after a night of not-very-good-sleep (upset tummy boo-hoo, and for once, not alcohol related!), I woke up at 8am in order to see Mr Moi walk out the door to go to work. On a Saturday. (Actually, while his work didn’t make today an official working day, it’s another weird ‘four-day weekend next week so work on the Saturday this week’ things).
This morning, armed with my newly fixed computer and a quiet Saturday morning, I sat down to start blogrolling. It feels like I’ve been away for so long, I almost wanted to main-line an internet connection.
Alas, this morning, fate was not on my side. I booted up the computer, opened Firefox and… nothing. I checked out the modem and it was gleefully blinking at me. Bugger… not working.
So I popped on an episode of Sex and the City (I was a relative latecomer to this series. I got it for free earlier this year, and am slowly making my was through seasons 1 and 2).
After two episodes, the internet was still not working, so I made myself a berry smoothie, and settled down for episode three of the morning when…
The power went out.
To be honest, after that I was so devoid of energy and motivation to do something that didn’t require electricity, that I went back to bed.
In the end, the power was out for about six hours. Hopefully the freezer didn’t defrost.
Welcome back to my world!
