Enforced hiatus

Sounds painful, and it is.

The blog is undergoing an enforced hiatus at the moment, due to a house move.  Its seems that it can take up to 15 days to sort out your broadband with my provider, which seems a pretty long time.  Granted, not as bad as when you had to personally know a politician years ago, in order to secure a phone from the P&T (Department of Post and Telegraphs), a forerunner of Eircom. 

I have now been assured that a shiny new broadband line will be in place next week sometime, unless some dastardly conspiracy is afoot (well, it is the Internet after all!).  

Meanwhile, it's a case of only getting to a connection once or twice a day for now... so sorry that comments on the previous posts have been taking so long to appear.  Thanks for your patience...  please bear with it for a little bit longer.

Hi GM, so you are abandoning the Manor for pastures new? Does one move from a manor to a palace then?

Lew said...

Good luck with the move, hope you get the net sorted quickly, I still love reading your blog..

Don't like the idea of being put out to pasture Ella, but going back the roots on the inside of the M50...

Thanks Lew. You're one of the blog's earliest readers. Fair play to you, and long may it continue!

BTW, sorry again about the delay in getting the comments up. In the shaky hands of Vodafone with regard to the new connection.

Moving home is regarded as one of life great stress factors. I trust the the house warming invites to your many readers are on the way!!
Good luck with the move.

The Gombeen Man said...

Thanks John. Yes, it's a pretty stressful business alright!

Dakota said...

Hope you have a stress free move to the new manor GM!

Thanks D.

Wish it was stress-free. The country's gone to the dogs, the Euro is on the verge of break-up in the biggest financial crisis since before WW2, and what am I doing? Moving house.

Remind me never to do this again
