no internet and no home phone. how did i survive this terrible ordeal? i'm joking of course. although i did feel a little cut off from the world. i have unlimited calls on my mobile so it was all ok. the technician just left and it was a fault at the exchange. what did i do before the internet? oh yes, i had a life. i've just started watching dowton abbey. i'm up to series 2. i now see what all the fuss is about. it's great.
