Put Another 50p In The Meter!
I’ve just had a stark reminder of how much I rely on the internet in my day-to-day life.
Last week was extremely busy for me: NQT observation lesson, visit to the Council’s central training room where I’ll be delivering a session on WordPress and Wikis on Wednesday 1st, contacted the Tech support people because WordPress is blocked by the Council’s firewall/filtering software, drove from Perth to North Berwick to participate in East Lothian’s Extreme Learning session, drove to Perth for a School Board meeting where I made a pitch for a new website (successfully!)… and all that was just Wednesday!
On Thursday, I was out of school all day at a training session for NQT Mentors. Thursday night was spent dealing with a poorly 15 month old who wasn’t really in the mood for being calm… Friday was a packed day at school, so it wasn’t until I got home that I finally got the chance to try and catch up with email and blogging… Except…
The Dell that is our direct home link has a dead fan… and Dell have stopped making them or supplying them… and then to add insult to injury, our modem has died and it will be Monday before an engineer can come to the house to fix/replace it… the net(groan) result of all these mean I haven’t been able to connect to the internet for a few days and I’ve realised just how much of my life I live online nowadays…
Anyway, for anyone that’s been expecting comments or posts or email replies I apologise for my silence! I’ll catch up again over the next couple of days.
On the plus side… I’ve seen a couple of friends, and spent a lot of time playing with my 15month old. (Memo to self – must do this more often!)
Anyway, has anyone else had a similar enforced absence from the online community? What did it make you think about the time you spend online?
