But this past week has been ideal for hexie flowers. I find them very relaxing and of course I have been listening to my books. I have nearly finished The Beekeeper's Apprentice, a very different take on Sherlock Holmes, and I am really enjoying it.
Now I have just written an Epistle, but decided it was too much information lol. So to cut the story short.
Yesterday morning the phone was dead (and I needed it). Managed to use my cell phone, which I hate and only use for emergencies.
The phone was still dead at 4 pm. So I found my account on the Internet, it was all paid up and I could find nothing wrong ....... but I did find Live Chat ..... so decided to give it a go. Well the girl was most helpful and we tried a few things, then she said she had to put me through to the Engineer Technician. But before she let me go she would ring me.... durrrr phone dead??? But only a minor lapse we decided she could ring me on my cell phone. What a headache. She tried 5 times and my phone just wouldn't accept calls ..... light globe moment ..... with the Sim card I have I have to have Call Diverts (tho goodness knows what that is) but I told her and we then manage to speak.
Now the Technician was a lovely most helpful girl but she had an accent and unfortunately I had to get her to repeat things.
If you have a Technician make a house call for a fault they charge you. But if it is on the line outside they do not. So she had me do various tests and then she tried to ring the land line.
Result ...... it is a fault on the outside line (so no cost) and they will direct any calls made to my cell phone, free of charge, until the fault is fixed. Does that mean I may learn to use the cell phone at last?
Now apart from the language accent, which can't be helped I call that excellent service. Well done Telstra.com
Which now brings me to the rain. Now no-one will believe me, but whenever we have a lot of rain the land line plays up. When we were on dial up Internet I lost the Internet.
They still don't believe me
but we had a severe rain storm the night before last.
Go figure that out.
