I’m so sorry that I disappeared as I did, but it wasn’t my fault. I was here. I was sat right here in front of my PC, as I always am, it’s just that I couldn’t get online. After continual issues with Talk Talk, my broadband provider, I decided to change companies, but Talk Talk wasn’t quite finished making my life hell. They didn’t release my phone number on Wednesday morning as they should have, but they did take away my broadband, phone number, and ability to make any calls other than 999 and Freephone numbers. It has taken my new company, who I have to say has been wonderful, to get the whole mess sorted out, as it didn’t end at Talk Talk messing up, the company who does the physical work at the exchange were failing to get the work done. If you are looking for an internet company that cares, put the customer first and even does things like phone you back to keeps you up to date with what is happening, then move to Plus Net. Although the whole experience could have turned out to be one of my ultimate nightmares, they turned it into just a bad dream. I have to admit that not having the internet, hasn’t been the greatest experience, and sitting playing card games all day long, is a bit dull. No internet means no catch-up TV and no box sets, just the plain offerings that I managed to record. I have missed so much it’s going to keep me busy, just finding them all again. I have survived my technology detox, even though I wasn’t looking for one, but I’m not sure that I could have put up with for much longer, but it wasn’t as bad as I expected.
I have to admit though there was one thing that I couldn’t but worry about, and that was all of you. I was sure that there would be people out there concerned as to what was wrong with me. I was also sure that there would be the odd one or two who might have started to worry. Well, I’m sorry for putting you through this, but there was nothing that I could do about it. If I could have even been able to send even a single tweets, I would have, but I was totally cut off from the world. So sorry. It is going to take me a couple of days to catch up with all the tweets in my inbox and to manage to get all the quotes, #PSMyWords and so on, running as normal, so bear with me, I will get there.
Sorry again if I worried anyone, but be assured, I am fine.

Well here it is, Monday, the day I have to decide just what I am going to do, rejoin the world fully or stay part-time a little longer. I have actually more or less made my mind up to rejoin, but it isn’t as instant as anyone might think as I work on the day ahead when it comes to the blanket everyone tweets, so the work I do today won’t show……
