You may have noticed communications have been a little slow of late, my
access to the World Wide Web has been particularly tardy.
We’ve been in the depths of Devon for our annual holiday, to our favourite place, and whilst it seems mobile phones have replaced the need for the public phone box in the area
leaving the local phone box a little overgrown (even the spiders have moved out)
We thought the mobile ‘dongle’ we took with us would keep us in touch with the rest of the world, but things were moving at a snails pace.
That was until Mr Mac kindly lent his mobile wi-fi broadband router for a few days, which was a splendid thing, letting all of us to get Internet access at once with out tearing our hair out. But actually, what we discovered, was that good company, sunny weather and real surf were no substitute for surfing the ‘net and actually it is just fine and dandy to out of touch with the rest of the world for a wee while.
We are back home now, after a tedious, nine hour slog up the motorway from Devon to Derbyshire, the fridge is empty and the pile of dirty laundry is mountainous. But none of that matters.
Normal service will be resumed shortly.
