I am still patiently waiting for my internet to be connected again. New phone lines are finally working better, after much static and random loss of service, plus a lot of buck passing as to the problem.
The plan is now in place for mine to be connected - just have to wait for the technician to come and do it.
In the meantime I have 3 sets of cutrains and 2 sleepover bags to make, as well as the yearly Christmas boxer shorts for the grandchildren. That will keep me from thinking too much about the lack of internet.
