Topic: Hurtling to Obscurity
Yeah, I'm getting broadband, me. Famous last words.
I am superwoman, honestly I am. I fixed the bars that fell out of the window. I dealt with the toilet blockages (ew). When all the curtain rods fell down, I put up new ones. I called the AA about the car refusing to start. I found the cat that wetn missing, and deflected them from the new slamming the wardrobe door all night game by judicious use of stinky perfume.
I sorted out the estate agent's leaflets on my old flat, and learnt to live with how their fish eye lens had made my sky blue walls look vomit inducing turquoise. When Duch went ape at me for no reason on the answerphone, I politicked my way out of it.
I wore four sweaters so the raging blast of chill winds racing through my flat would not harm me. I spent the weeekend under a blanket. I retrieved a coat of sorts. I even tried to go buy a hat and gloves, without too much success.
I tried to walk the two miles uphill to the internet cafe to blog.

But I failed. The wind was whipping a new parting in my hair and I couldn't get up that damn hill. And sought refuge in my duvet. Sigh.

Ooh, same here re the hat and gloves and searching for an internet cafe (the only one nearby was broked). Jeez I'd forgotten how damned cold it is here in Amsterdam, walking nearby the canals. I'm longing for a pair of thick high waisted trousers and a vest. Hoorah for your broadband.. when's it due?

I *am* in Sydenham. I may pretend it's Penge, but that's just for glamour's sake.
Ehm, they haven't agreed I can actually get broadband as yet, I'm blogging from the LA Fitness front cafe at the moment - dearer than Crystal Palace, but at least they serve coffee.....

BT have to get back to Cunty Bollocking ISP and let them know when it can go ahead, so I'd say around October sometime at this rate.

Blogging on holiday! OoooooOOooooooOOOooooOOOOooooh!

She looked like a really really young version of Lindsay Wagner, but somehow not quite as fit. And I can't remember her name, but I have a perfect impression of the mud smear just across the front of her uniform in my mind's eye...
