Oh what a horrible day it was yesterday. Mr Furlong says it was a “gratitude” day.
Well, I don’t know about that.
There is no central heating for a third day today, with the anticipation of many similar days into the future. The repair man is busy. It’s cold.
The Internet connection was down for two hours the previous night and the night before that, and last night it crashed all night – tickets, kapoof, zero, finito, zilch.
It has taken many hours to find the problem – in vain. Many many hours resetting the router and trying another. And wasting the day. But it’s not US. Strange that our Internet only crashes at Peak Times don’t you think?
Our mobile phones went down too because the router has a new password.
Whatsapp went bananas. I had to back-up and re-install. I’m sick of things not working. I love the technology but hate it when it goes wrong.
Things did settle down yesterday. The Internet crashed completely!
But today it’s back on. Today we have the greenhouse heater on in our lounge. It roars to life when the thermostat starts it. So we aren’t that cold.
The flat doesn’t leak. We have electricity and hot water. We are not hungry. There are lots of things to be grateful for.
But what was REALLY good yesterday was Mr Furlong’s wonderful gluten-free cauliflower cheese supper which was sizzling hot with a crispy cheesy crust and deliciously scrumptious for people who were trying to be grateful without the Internet! (recipe on request)
