To B.T or not to B.T, yet again

I got up at around half past seven this morning, a pretty normal time of day to get out of bed, (The only normal thing you ever do, I hear you say!!!) and, as usual, switched on the computer first. Then I went and made coffee, took tablets and all the rest before sitting down at the computer.

When I sat there, what a surprise, there was no access to the internet. There was nothing wrong with the system, I just couldn’t connect although BT charge me, like they do you, for 24/7 connectability.

What I found this morning is nothing new, it happens so regularly that I think that in future I’ll order the newspaper. Not quite as up-to-date but more chance of getting it.

The question has to be, why, oh why, up here in such a beautiful place as Shetland does BT get away with charging us the same price for a system that doesn’t work, as it does the rest of the country for a system that does work.

If you, Mr B. Telecom, have an answer to that, then I would be delighted to hear about it.

On the other hand, if you don’t have an answer, I’ve already heard the bullshit.

More hospital app's

Sorry I wasn't around yesterday ,folks. I had a hospital appointment and that, in effect, costs me the day. It means that I leave home just before ten in the morning to catch the bus into Lerwick, getting there just after eleven.

I do whatever I can justify (which usually takes about two minutes) and then, if I've got the day right, I'll get the three o'clock bus, getting home for perhaps half past four, but this bus only runs once a fortnight. Otherwise, it's a twenty to four kick-off, three buses and home for about five o'clock.

Regardless, it takes me ages and as I'm an alcoholic, hanging around in the town which is full of pubs, life is difficult. There is a link relating to that subject, somewhere on the blog, if you are interested.

But I'm home for a while now, a week off the top of my head, so it's possible that I'll have some some sense to write, fingers crossed ;))

Go on, have a look

I don't like Monday's

I don't like Monday's, not at all. When I think about it, I'm probably not the only one either. Compare today with the weekend when the sun was beaming down, there was no wind and it was lovely and warm.

Today it's comparatively cold, it's windy and the sun is in hiding. Not the same sort of weather at all. I did have thoughts regarding the garden but I must be honest when I say that those thoughts have dribbled away now. Oh dear, what a shame.

Must be honest again when I say that today I plan today to do bugger all.

There's always tomorrow :))
