Our internet is finally back!

It has been off since Monday... Apparently it has something to do with the solar flare that occurred but I don't know. Mweb only said that it was a problem with the Telkom exchange in the area and nothing more than that because they didn't know either lol.

Telkom... I called them once to tell them that the internet wasn't working and then again to cancel the fault as it was a general problem and I didn't call after that to try get more information because I didn't feel like holding for half an hour haha!

Either way, I am glad that the internet is back :)

Inconsiderate Neighbours: Follow Up

My brother told our domestic worker about the person who came to complain about the music yesterday. Our domestic worker then told us that our neighbours on the other side of the house (not the ones that make noise), and the people next to those neighbours both complained about the noise! LOL!

I asked her, "How do you know that?" and she said that she was talking to her sister outside the house and saw the lady next door go out her house, complaining that "there's so much noise" and that she "can't live like this anymore" and that she "was going for a walk now".

I can't recall how she knew the people next to that lady complained but I laughed so hard.

Inconsiderate Neighbours

I am not a prude. I am not snooty. I am not a snob. I am most definitely not a kill-joy or boring. I am actually quite an understanding person, I enjoy having fun and making "fasaria" (in Greek, it means making a fuss, being noisy, adults say that kids are making "fasaria" when the kids are being annoying and loud).

The neighbours to my right are quite the loud bunch. Their kitchen is on the same side as my bedroom window, i.e. if we had no wall separating the houses, walking out of their kitchen would walk right to my bedroom window. So I hear everything. So when they are loud, there's a threshold. At first, I will be patient, maybe the child is being naughty and will eventually get reprimanded. Or the child isn't listening when the mother calls. Or the kids are having some fun being... Kids. All fine and dandy in my books. I love children, I intend on having children of my own someday so I know that I'll also go through these things and it's all very nice and well.

Then the noise continues...

Home Sweet Home!

[Note: I've updated this post to reflect my new watermark on my photos.]

And we're back! Yesterday actually :) I'd like to wish my readers a very happy new year and I hope that everyone is able to achieve many awesome things this year :)

The place we stayed at had NO signal indoors. It also had no internet access (we stayed at an apartment). There was some signal in the sunroom (second lounge) and most times we got signal on the balcony. Though I couldn't make text-based posts or anything from my phone. It was a mission just to find signal to BBM!

So what I've done is I've post-written (is that the right way to describe what I've done?) posts about each day of the holiday, with photos. Feel free to scroll back and read about the holiday!

Also, two little souls were in quite a bad mood today... I have a feeling they aren't happy we went away :( we also got them new baskets which they didn't seem happy about at all...

Woooo the cross-ness just oozes from their little faces :(
