Dealing with Telstra is a nightmare, especially if your internet provider is... not Telstra.
Happily the family all arrived on time Christmas Eve and since then my father has finally been able to work out a way to get ourselves hooked up onto the internets once again.
I have a LOT to catch up on. A lot to catch you all up on as well, it's been very, very busy in my little corner of the world, but it's all good things for now.
Right now I have to go finish baking my father's birthday cake (he requested a sponge!) and get ready for his birthday dinner.
Hopefully I'll get myself organized and focused again soon!
That is if I don't get distracted again by the ocean... it's been absolutely -perfect- these past few days.
