A short post.
I am tired.
For no good reason.
I have spent the day trying to reach companies.
Fighting with companies.
Complaining about companies.
In the end nothing was accomplished.
Telkom came at five this evening to put in the phone.
Then discovered that the “flat” is not attached to the house.
So it has to have a separate line.
It is regulation you know!
Turns out WE have to dig a fifteen metre trench.
And lay down pipes with cable he provided.
So…now I have to find someone to dig the frigging trench.
Then he will come back and put in the phone.
To crown it all I was walking in with fifteen metres of cable in my hands .
Jasmine took one look and thought “oh boy, a new toy”
She grabbed a chunk of it and tried to race away, pulling me with her.
The air was blue.
Two lots of installers came to quote on installing the cable TV.
I settled on one and he has promised to come and do it at ten tomorrow.
I am not holding my breath.
I am still trying to get someone to come and quote for the burglar alarm.
I want the crowd who do the main house.
However, the sales and technical part of ADT security seriously sucks.
The crowd who DID come and quote were out of the ballpark, price wise.
My mother informed me that she spotted a cute little field mouse today.
Where I am sitting at the computer.
Hopefully, it is a sensible little mouse.
And won’t try exploring up my trouser leg!
Now I am off to bed.
Perchance to dream.
Or maybe not.
Last night I dreamed I pulled a whole lot of steak out of Mex’s ear.
It wasn’t pretty.
