What WILL the kids do?
Moving can pose some interesting situations.
Yesterday I organised the moving of the phone, internet connection and Foxtel. The Telstra Customer Service staff member was lovely and while the whole thing took 35 minutes to organise, it was a pleasure. Thank you Telstra!
The downside (or is it), as I described to Mr O in a text message:
We will be without internet for four business days and Foxtel will be moved Monday. What WILL the kids do!! LOL
His response, in double-quick time:
They will have to read!!!
I’m not at all sure how the kids will cope. NO INTERNET for six whole days once we include the weekend! At least, without Foxtel, I will not have to watch yet another replay and analysis of Australia coming fourth in the 4 x 100 freestyle relay. OK, they didn’t win: get over it, Australia, there are a whole lot of other things happening at the Olympics.
The kids are still coming to grips with the finer points of technology, but they figured out this probably meant no internet on their phones either (no wi-fi)! Mr O Jnr 2 piped up with the information they could – if they had credit on their phones. Wise young man, that one. My IT protégé!
I am collecting more boxes on the way to work tomorrow morning and have already packed my beloved dinner set. The house looks like a bomb has hit it and Mr O Jnr 1 came home from visiting a friend raving about how lovely his friend’s house was. Yes, well, I countered, I am sure his friend KEEPS HIS ROOM TIDY!!!!
I have a feeling Mr O and I will be exhausted this time in a few days.
