We have had a cool rainy week, after sweltering heat and humidity the week before, the latest weather system brought violent storms and torrential rain over much of the East Coast.
Our phone and internet have not recovered, although today ( a whole week after reporting it) a repairman did arrive at the house to look into it. More ominously we also heard today that another neighbour was told his phone would not be restored until 14th March.
Winter temperatures and heavy rain prevailed this last week, even the native animals seemed to take shelter. Our dams are overflowing, and the lagoon has burst out into the sea, the cycle of life renewing itself after the recent fish kill event.
It is strange living the disconnected life; many times a day I think of someone I should phone or email, or something I would like to look up online. We can receive messages on the mobile phone, by walking down to the beach or out onto the Point, but making calls this way does not seem easy! Using the internet at the library is quite comfortable, but we tend to only reply to emails, or delete them (!!!) in desperation. The atmosphere is not conducive to browsing, reading posts, or emailing friends. So I am waiting for our home internet to be connected again, and reading lots of books in the meantime. Sorry to be out of touch with all my online community, I miss you all.
Thanks to our nearby son and his family for their wi-fi to send this post … until next time …
