Well, I have to say I’m not overly impressed with remote posting.
We are still without broadband, but Steve has set up dial-up connection sharing (dial up!), so we can at least do our banking etc. without having to resort to that horror of horrors… the telephone.
It’s all a bit crap really, and there is no outlook for when we will be fixed. We’re just waiting for our landlord to let us know if it would be OK to install cable instead. Then we could get rid of the landline completely, and save more pennies.
Yesterday, like a good girl, I went to the garage to check the tyre pressure on my new tyres.
I went round the whole car with the air thing, and although they were all about right, I put a bit of air in each one, just to keep it topped up. The funny thing was, the pressure reading seemed to go down slightly, no matter how much air I put in. After doing this on all four tyres, I suddenly noticed that there was a start button on the machine, which I hadn’t pressed, so no air was actually coming out of the air thing in the first place. Doh. I was too embarassed to go round all four tyres again, so now I will have to find another garage where I can top my tyres back up.
Steve was very kind though – when I told him about it he asked if he was allowed to laugh before he did.
