Weekend Update

IMG_6085-846x400I’m having the mother of a time with the internet and blogging at the moment. I recently ungraded to a new macbook air 11inch which has been fantastic in all ways but for the fact it’s missing an SD slot.  knew this when I bought it but you can buy USB card readers so I didn’t anticipate it being an issue, well we’re about 2 months in and I’m on my 3rd reader. The first one snapped in a child related injury, the second one was more substantial and initially looke to be perfect but then stopped working (AND I think it was interfering with my wifi connection) and this third one is a bit hit and miss. So photos I’ve taken for posts and still on various memory cards waiting to be blogged. I would usually be able to use my desktop but we move in 3 days, 3 DAYS!! So I’ve boxed it up. On the moving topic I’m fairly certain the home move we’ve done with our internet provider has affected our internet connection as it’s missing around 50% of the time which is again super irritating when trying to post on here but even more so when uploading to YouTube.

So all of that combined with being surrounded by boxes of stuff and knowing how much more I still have to do means there might be some sporadic posting over the next week or so. I still have a couple of belated #30in30 ‘s I need to put up and TONS of house related things I want to post but we will just have to see how connected we are when we move in on Wednesday! In the meantime I plan to be one of ‘those guys’ and hang out in Starbucks to schedule some bits and bobs so it’s not complete radio silence until we’re settled in to our new home.

PS. Once we’re in and normal service resumes I’m thinking of making the weekend update a regular thing rather than a #hatemylife rant post, whaddayathink? Over the next few weeks there might be quite a bit to round up with the moving process so it might bemore interesting than my average week..

    Good luck with it all! Everyone has internet issues when moving house, for some reason ISPs just like to add more stress into a stressful time of life! I am kind of looking forward to seeing housey posts but my bank balance won’t like it after I went to Next to hunt out that chair you mentioned (sooo comfy) and ended up buying more bits I don’t really need and eyeing up rugs.. and lamps… and drawers…

    Do you ever use your mobile personal hotspot? I’m not sure how much blogging it could take but it’s worth a try xx

      yes! I actually survived on my hotspot for 2 weeks between internet providers once but it’s like my house has become an internet blackspot.. it might be my laptop but I’m waiting til we move to figure that out!
