This weekend the fates have conspired to ensure that Colonialist did no blogging. Starting with the electricity going off at 6 p.m on Friday, there have been regular cuts throughout the weekend. Then there have been urgent calls on my time for some business-related stuff. To add insult to injury, though, on Saturday:
Load-shedding came at six o’clock
So blogging I then had to dock,
When at eight lights came back on
There was something else had gone –
The internet now had a block!
In fact, phones and internet were out until late this evening – and then there was another power-out. Ironical, really, because the weather has been cold and (mercifully) wet – ideal for catching up on reading posts and things.
At least these guys pictured at Illovo must be happy:
(While doing limericks: My response to the Mad Kane Limerick-off Monday – jejune)
A girl once remarked, ‘That’s jejune!’
On hearing a popular tune;
When asked angrily why,
Reply: ‘F-for such sky,
M-must have been; May is too soon!’
The fates be damned!!! 😀
and my only complaint was I couldn’t see the first half of the rugby! you indeed were entitled to feel miserable
The strain on my sense of humour was intolerable – it promptly sued for divorce!
I really feel your pain….,,.from afar. 😳
And there, but for a bit of judicious scramming, would go you!
I feel your pain after staying with my sister who has miserably inadequate broadband.
Battling with these things does certainly affect peace of mind and blood pressure!
It make me wonder how we ever managed in the days before television and when having a landline phone was a luxury!
Of course, we had to endure many years without TV while reading all about it on overseas publications. The first time I saw an active TV screen was in ‘backward’ Zimbabwe!
We must have been the last family in Ireland to have a television. We would sit round the dinner table discussing the popular programmes and my father wondered how we knew so much about them. Eventually he gave in and guess who became a TV addict? My father!
🙂 Previous deprivation does that to you!

Is this due to weather?
The weather exacerbates the problems caused by ineptitude.
