How would you cope if you had no way to use the Internet for a week?
If you want to join in here's what David would like you to do:
Please answer today's question on your own blog, any time until next weekend. Just link to this blog (or to this post) so I can follow the progress of the discussion.
Now if this was at work it would be a problem because a lot of my work is done via the internet. However, the problem would soon be fixed as we have a large, efficient IT department who would probably have the internet connection working fairly soon.
If I was without internet connection at home for a week I would probably cry!
Having thought about it -
- I could probably fill my time quite productively by taking up exercise. I have a Pilates machine gathering dust, I could go swimming and there are some lovely walks round where I live, though I don’t like walking in the rain or snow.
- We have an office full of books at home and MWM brings 3 or 4 books home from the library every week, so I could catch up on my reading – I love a good book
- All my cupboards and wardrobes are in need of clearing out, then there’s the loft – we have enough stuff to start a shop, perhaps I could sell it on Ebay once the Internet was up and running again.
- Our dining room needs decorating but we haven’t got round to it, so that would be a good project, I could rope MWM into that too.
- I could help MWM tidy the garden. It looks quite forlorn at this time of year and there are a ton of leaves to be collected.
- I could do some baking. I used to bake every Friday evening when the boys were at home, but it doesn’t seem worth it now because I don’t eat cake and biscuits as I seem to be on a permanent diet and MWM doesn’t eat them either, because if I’m on a diet then so is he!
- I could spring clean the house but MWM does such a good job of the cleaning since he retired that there’s nothing left for me to do.
- I could write letters to friends but they’d much rather get an email.
- I could go shopping – I’m really good at shopping!
However, whilst all these things are very productive, I would rather stick pins in my eyeballs than do any of them, with the exception of shopping, so I would probably spend my time composing posts ready to copy onto my blog once the internet was connected again.
I think I'm addicted!!!
