it wasn't pretty...

i have been tearing my hair out for the past few days dealing with 'internet issues'...most of the time it didn't work, then occasionally it would tempt me with a glimpse of a window, be painstakingly slow and then disappear altogether again...it wasn't pretty in my house and after two days of this, i decided to take drastic action. i had two options, choice number one, lob the bloody thing out the window (which i realized would not heighten my chances of selling my house) or choice number two, ask my man.


i did not really ask, more like pick up the phone, shout obscenities down it and then huff and puff around the house until he came home that evening. when i returned later that night having been at my 'yak and yarn' meeting (a terribly important meeting involving women, talking and knitting in a coffee house) i enquired as to the state of our internet..."oh that, yep that's all fixed now". "well what was wrong?" said in a slightly narky voice..."nothing really just a wiggle of a loose connection at the back and it's all okay now"...so you are telling me i had spent two days of being very 'cross' and 'huffy' listening to people complaining "i can't get my homework done" or "i can't get on neopets" all because of a cable that needed a little wiggling...why oh why did i not pay attention in school, i am sure at some point a teacher would have covered that very important topic of 'technical issues' and the answer 'wiggle a cable'...


in between having a very 'hateful relationship' with the computer (please note, i do not name my computer, maybe if i did, it would feel loved and wouldn't loosen it's cables on me) i had a bit of R&R with Miss Margery (oh i do hope R&R means what i think it means) and the results are four pictures...


two of which i have for you to peruse...the other two are waiting for their pictures to be taken (alas my camera is also not playing fair this week) so i shall save those for later...

Oh! I love your new pictures!! So pretty!! :)

Aren't computers just so frustrating?! I feel your pain! I am the unfortunate "techie" in the house, and have spent many a day trying to figure out whats wrong with the computer. The worst was the two-days I spent trying to eradicate a virus that had lodged itself on the harddrive. Ick!

Hope you have a lovely weekend!
