New Apartment!

It's been almost another week since my last blog so I feel I should write one.

House/Apartment Move
As you know, last Friday we moved to a new place 10 minutes from my parents place (where we were previously). The move went well, nothing got too damaged which is always good! The new place is taking shape slowly. We still have no sofa or internet connection of our own. The sofa will be delivered on the 24th of Sept, and we are currently logging onto my parents internet through one of BT's "Hot Spots". Luckily we are in the middle of a decent "hot spot".

If a customer is signed up to BT broadband or BTInfinity, then part of their connection (say for example 10%) is reserved to create a "hot spot". When a few of these connections in the same area are together it makes the signal stronger and the range/hotspot bigger (I think, im not 100% sure). Anyway, it allows you to log onto "your" internet (using your BT details) at a slower speed, but using someone elses hub.

So that's what we are doing. It means we have a slower download/viewing speed than normal, but at least we have access!

Everything has pretty much halted over the past week. I've done no sculpting, building or work of any kind :( My dad has helped to finish building the hospital wards, so I think we have 10 of those now for out large hospital! Apart from that nothing is happening...Gahhhhhh Hopefully this will change soon as I have none of my sculpting stuff here. I'll pick some up on the weekend and start doing stuff again :)

I think I will be happier when we have the internet is properly sorted as it's limited to a few hours a day at the moment, and I'll be FAR happier when I have somewhere comfy to sit. Kitchen table chairs are not comfy for long term sitting lol

Righty oh, sorry for no progress, hopefully there will be some soon!
Cheers...

  5. Sounds like the hard part of the move is over.
    No doubt you'll be happier when you have a bit more normality in your life (and a comfy chair).

    1. Indeed! Yeah some normality would be good right now (and that sofa!)

  6. The importance of a comfy chair simply cannot be overstated. Because my computer chair that I use in my man cave is the best chair in the house, I got a second one last Christmas to put in the lounge to watch TV from.

    I'm glad to hear the move went well. Moving house can be such an ordeal.

    1. I totally agree! I am currnetly sitting in the lounge with my computer chair (which will soon be my sculpting chair). I used to sculpt sitting on a sofa, but i'll be doing work from my desk from now on. At the moment it's the best chair in the flat... hopefully until the sofa arrives :D

      Hopefully Sunday I'll pop back to my parents house and pick up a few sculpting essentials (and that parcel!), then at least I can finally start working on things again... I need to get a car so I an go back and forth easier lol
