Managed to move house successfully on my own. Well, that's a slight exaggeration since I did have a firm of movers. But my kids are pretty organised about moving (we do it so often) so they are a great help. This time Sloph has already left home (grown up and moved away, not far away) and Bee is conveniently on a school trip in Japan. Only the sofa has refused to move in. Despite everything the men tried, it refused to come through the door. It could have been worse. We did have two but now Sloph has one of them, and they were old. Still recycling furniture is difficult. I was going to offer it to a charity, but it seems it needs a fire certificate for them to accept it. I can't imagine that a sofa bought in Finland, and moved to Lithuania and Greece on its way to England, has ever had a British fire certificate. So not sure what I can do with it. It seems a shame.
So now we are located back just off the Cowley Road again At 9.00 this morning I went off to the internet cafe to catch up on two days emails, as everyone in the road who has wireless has learnt how to put security on it, and I'm still waiting for Virgin to connect our internet.
But Cowley Road is not an early morning place, it seems. So I had to go back and get the laptop and enter the much condemned Costa Coffee to use its free wireless. I was feeling a lot more charitable towards it, but soon I found the wireless didn't give me Skype and wouldn't let me send emails from Outlook. So all I could do was read incoming stuff. The other wifi-ers said that they all had problems. So only one cheer for Costa Coffee then. It's the first time I have come across a wifi system that didn't have full capabilities.
Down the road I spotted this item in a games shop window. Somehow I think a game entitled "Where is Moldova" can only be played once. But who knows?
