At last, we have a phone line. as promised for the 7th of July. I expected it to be ready for use come the stroke of midnight, so you can imagine my heart dipping every 20 minutes when I would check it, and check it again. Turns out a man has to come round and poke around with the sockets. But at least they sent an attractive man. If only I had a little more skill with the language here, I could have asked him to sort out the broadband.
So I was quite excited to finally have a landline, and the second he was out the door I was dialling. Of course, nobody was home.
