We had no electricity this afternoon for 3 hours

Our electricity went off at around 4:30. I’m writing this while its still off but I cant post it since I have no internet, so when this posts it will be back on. The whole area and surrounding areas have all had a power outage. My mom lives about half an hour from me and she has no electricity either.
I am sooo bored. We arent bad enough with having to stay indoors and away from people and then this happens. My dad and moms neighbour told them he was in touch with the electric company and they said it was going to be off until around 7 PM.
Grrrr! What will I do with myself?
There’s literally nothing to do! No internet, no radio, no tv. I guess I can read but I’m trying to save power on my phone.
My next door neighbour very kindly gave me a flask of hot water so I could make a hot drink, so I’ve made a cup of coffee for myself and I’m sitting here drinking it and contemplating what to do next.
Its going to be a very long couple of hours lol. 😀

Monday peeve

ITS LIZ. SO TODAY WHEN I WAS FINISHING UP MY THERAPY SESSION WITH EILEEN…THE TAXI PULLED UP TO TAKE US HOME. NORMALLY THE TAXI DRIVER WAITS AND EILEEN WALKS US OUT TO THE TAXI WHEN WE’RE FINISHED. NOT TODAY. TODAY THE DRIVER VERY RUDELY WALKED IN ON US WHEN WE WERE STILL CHATTING, AND IN THE MIDDLE OF WINDING DOWN THE SESSION. HE JUST OPENED THE OFFICE DOOR AND CAME IN AND WAS LIKE, IS SHE READY? EILEEN VERY PROMPTLY GOT UP AND SAID TO HIM THAT WE WERENT READY YET. AND THAT I’D BE OUT IN FIVE MINS. ALLS I COULD THINK WAS HOW DAMN RUDE OF HIM? I KNOW HIM, HE’S A DRIVER I CANT STAND, HE OVERCHARGES A LOT AND I THINK HE’S A MONEY GRABBER, SO I WAS HAPPY EILEEN PUT HIM IN HIS PLACE. HE DESERVED IT. HE SIMPLY HAD NO PATIENCE TO WAIT FOR 5 MINS UNTIL WE WERE READY, HE JUST THOUGHT HE’D RUDELY WALK IN ON US. WHEN EILEEN CAME BACK INTO THE ROOM AFTER TALKING TO HIM SHE SAID, WELL I THINK HE’S GOTTEN THE MESSAGE. AND I THINK SHE WAS RIGHT BECAUSE, WHEN WE WENT OUT TO THE TAXI HE APOLOGISED TO HER ABOUT WALKING IN ON US. AT LEAST HE DID THAT, BUT STILL. SOME PEOPLE REALLY IRK ME.

Teething problems with my new tv remote

god! sometimes I hate being blind. I am having some trouble with my new tv remote. The guy who installed my sky tv package showed me how to work it. And I thought I remembered, but today I forgot where the back button was again. Not even my mom could help me, as she’s very technologically challenged. In the end I found it, after much trying and failing. So alls good now. My tv is working. I can watch the tv. I think now that I’ve found the back button for myself, I’ll remember where it is on the remote. I do wish I could see though at times like this. It would make things so much easier. Ah well. At least it works. For a while there I thought I wouldnt be able to enjoy my new tv package at all. And if I didnt find the back button to allow me to change the channels then I wouldnt have been able to enjoy it. What a disasterous hour I put down. Way to make me grumpy. Thanks a lot blindness, sometimes I hate you lol.

I dont believe this but…

Ok, this is crazy but my broadband provider are asking me to pay 5.99 a month for the use of an email address. Imagine that! I am refusing to pay it! I refuse to pay for an email address. I mean there is Gmail, which I am now using. Gmail is free! It is more than adequate for my needs! Why would I pay 5.99 a month? Another subscription? No way! So I am canceling my email with Eir..who are my provider. If any of you had my email addy, please update it. My new one is
manyofus1980@gmail.com
Any of you my blogger buddies can feel free to email me any time!
I am always up for a chat!
I am so annoyed at Eir though! I pay a lot for my eir services, which include TV, phone, broadband etc. This is just a money grabbing thing, if you ask me.

Stressed out having to deal with the customer service department for my phone company

so well, i’m stressed out. why? because, I had to deal with the customer service dept of my phone company. except, it wasnt my complaint. I was phoning on behalf of my mom. You see, I topped her phone up yesterday via my bank account. I topped it up by 20 euro. She’s meant to get an offer for 20 euro a month, so she needs to top up by that amount each month. Not a problem, except when it is. Eir, who are her phone provider, are having technical difficulties, and there are issues with the bank, so the bank took the money from my account, but eir are claiming they havent recieved it, and the bank are claiming that the issue is with eir. So really, we dont know who the fault lies with, just that there is an issue and my mom has no access to her phone. I rang both eir and my bank, but got no satisfaction with either one. Never mind that when I rang the phone company I was on hold for 30 minutes. 30 damn minutes of music playing and me almost going crazy waiting. We’re still none the wiser now and mom is down 20 euro as she had to repay me as the 20 was taken out of my bank account. Then she went to the store and got more credit because the customer services person told her that if she topped up via a voucher it would work. I’ve told her its probably best not to top up via the bank again, as this is our second time having issues with it. Needless to say I am totally stressed out, as if I hadnt enough on my plate already. I certainly didnt need this today.

Bloody canvasers

Here where I live, In a couple of weeks there is going to be a general election, to bring in a new government.

Poloticians are out canvasing on a daily basis now.

I just had one of them come to my door, talking a load of bullshit.

He gave me tons of reasons why I need to give my number 1 vote to a local politician, to which I just said, yeah, ok, whatever!

I am not interested, I dont even think I’m going to vote!

I am also not interested in answering my door to canvasers!

I only answered the door because I thought it was my PA whose due to get here soon.

Now I wish I hadnt!

If you ask me, politicians are all liars! They promise you the world until they get in to government, and then they do absolutely nothing to fix things or the state of the country.

Its all just a ploy to get in!

I’m simply not interested. I hate politics.
