First of all, this is our house with the railings finished. Personally, I think Simon did an amazing job and it makes a huge difference to how the house looks. I also think it will impress the real estate agent coming tomorrow to look at and possibly list the house.
Second, today I am typing my blog on my iPad at Mama Sitas in Winlaw, a tiny enclave a half hour or so south of us. The reason? No Internet at our place. Here’s the situation. Internet went down last night at about 10.30 pm. Simon called this morning to check on it and Columbia Wireless told him that Ben was “working on it.”
I hared off with Sheila this morning for a 10K walk, came back and still no Internet. My turn to call the company. Well, our tower is on top of Idaho Peak and it seemed that Ben was working on the situation by waiting for the cloud cover to clear so that he could get up there in a helicopter. Now, I know about the long term forecast. I suggested that we might be waiting until April. The guy on the phone laughed. I suggested that I was dead serious. He shrugged (yes – I could see him doing that on the other end of the phone) and said well, hopefully not.
I suspect that Simon and I may be spending considerable time (and money) at cafes for a while.
And that’s it. I’ll post this and keep my fingers crossed that there’s a hole in the clouds tomorrow. Madly curious to see how the realtor assesses our house tomorrow.
