I'm back! - athene

I'm back!

So, um, sorry for the complete absence the last few weeks. Unexplained internet issues meant I couldn't get lj to load *at all*, and most other internet sites were really slow and sometimes failed entirely, especially if they were quite picture/graphics heavy. I have no idea why this happened, but last week it started working fine again, just as suddenly as it had started being weird in the first place.

Fingers crossed it was a temporary glitch, possibly with the internet connection rather than with my laptop, although it's so old and slow these days anything is possible.

But hopefully all is well again, and I can start catching up with everything I've missed since the start of July!

In good news, however, this enforced absence from the internet does mean I have caught up on a lot of reading, and watching things I have recorded off the TV (watched the entire second series of The Last Kingdom over two consecutive weekends, which was fun - Destiny Is All!). Still need to update my reading list post with everything I've read, though. I'm doing particularly well on non-fiction books and magazines/periodicals at the moment. \o/

That's awesome that you had some time to read. Internet connectivity is such a mystery at times as far as will it work or wont it, it may as well be magic.

:D

I've definitely been enjoying the reading and catching up on TV things, it's nice to just have a break and not be constantly checking social media sites and whatever. But it is frustrating not being able to get online when you have things you need to do.

I think it's nice to spend some non-digital time from time to time! But very nice to have you back :D

I'm actually really enjoying having a few days offline most weeks lately. I'm getting a lot more reading done. But I probably need to get online more often and at the very least check my e-mails. I keep going two or three days at a time without even switching the laptop on, which is probably not ideal (although I assume in case of emergency most people can text to let me know I need to reply to something urgent).

Might see if I can spend a few hours having a proper catch up over the bank holiday weekend.

We know what you're like *g*
If everyone uses your gmail (and you can set your other e-mail to forward things to it) you can easily pick up your gmail on your phone :)
