loveStrange things going on with my little heart lately, weird whumpy feelings in my chest, missed beats and extra beats but not all the time, some days just the odd episode, and sometimes it goes on for ages. Most disconcerting. Had a trip to my Doc’s, and have to go for an ECG.  As this has been going on for about 6 weeks now am not too worried as I am still functioning and so far have not dropped down dead. Always a good sign. Concurrently our internet connection has also been intermittently irregular, sometimes I’ve had to sit on top of the router with my Ipad to get any connection, and haven’t been able to use the mac in my office upstairs for a few nights. Then sometimes it comes back and everything is fine.  Then it’s gone again. This too has been going on for about 6 weeks. I’ve reported the fault, 3 times, and even had an engineer out who gave us a new router and junction box. Then today it wasn’t working again, so another phone call and for now all is well.  Am thinking my heart is connected to the internet, wouldn’t be surprised as I use it so much for work, photography, and all the usual social stuff. Perhaps I need a new router :).

75/365 nemesis



This has been my enemy for the past week. Actually for the past year.  I am going to rant now, look away if you’re a BT employee.  Last year, a very nice scottish gentleman rang us up and promised us the earth with internet speed and goodness, if we would swap to BT. At the time we were with Virgin, and whilst it wasn’t maybe brilliant, we got on the net, did what we needed to and bob’s your uncle.  But, ooh we thought, lightning fast speed and for less money. Sucked in and spat out were we. Ever since we changed over we have had intermittent speediness and slowness, mostly slowness. We have phoned, a good few times, and a nice Indian gentleman, in fact several very nice polite Indian gentlemen, have pushed some buttons in Calcutta, and we have gained a little oomph to our connection. For a period of 3 months we really have not had any problems. Then last week we had an electricity outage. And when we were back on, our internet had slowed down to bugger all unless you sat right by the router. I have put up with that for the week, stressing to get my work uploaded and emails sent, and it’s taken forever. I’ve resorted to uploading from my ipad when sitting by the router. Which always is very speedy if you sit on top of it. Like it’s saying ’nuffingk wrong with me missis, see???’  Until I go to the computer room and then ‘sorry you are not connected to the internet’ even though it says you have a fab signal. It lies and cheats this router.

They’re sending me a new one…. to be continued 🙂
