Our new internet connection didn’t happen when it was supposed to and, as a result, it’s nearly a week longer than I anticipated being fully back online. Somewhat frustrating when you’re running an online business.
Our move from the old home to the new one went relatively smoothly but I have no idea how we accumulated all that stuff. The new place has heaps of storage but I don’t want to be filling it all up. Need to try and live more simply somehow. I have an ‘opp box’ at the moment where I’m putting clothes I no longer really need and just today a flyer was put in the letterbox for a local CFS fete coming up – they’re seeking stuff to sell at the fete. Reckon we can help them!
The kitchen was finished first and then our bedroom for the most part before I tackled our office. I knew I had 3 or 4 days to get sorted but it was worrying to find that the plans we’d had in place for connecting our new DSL service did not happen in the way we had hoped, even though we had booked it a month in advance. When it came down to it, Telstra told us our internet service provider had to connect the pole to our house but the service provider told us it was Telstra’s job. We got stuck in the middle and sought advice. In the end we located a private technician who was qualified to do the job and he got us connected. I believe this guy has a niche business and I’ve since heard horror stories from other VAs and small business operators with similar tales to tell – sometimes waiting many more weeks.
If you live in Victoria, Australia and you’re suffering this same fate, send me an email or fill out the contact form and I’ll put you in touch with this guy. He was worth his weight in gold.
I am grateful that my clients were patient due to the extended delay and I look forward to getting stuck back into work this week on my regular basis.
