It’s been many weeks since I had “easy use” of internet facilities. When I left Brisbane on August 8th, I did not know I would have such “online challenges”. When I drove around Australia in 2012/13 I had only a little trouble getting on line, but this time it was different.
My Dongle created challenges. It rarely worked. I did get it “seen to” and a new card was provided, but it didn’t work. As well, my computer found it difficult to access available Wifi. Again annoying.
Back “home” in Brisbane, I continue to have trouble. The area in which the van and I are parked is not good for any reception. Which means I have to find a spot (daughter’s home, the library) etc to get some work done. It’s frustrating. But that is all about to end.
OLDER WOMEN’S NETWORK CONFERENCE
I will be attending this in the city and staying at a hotel there. Free Wifi. Oh, I so hope it works!! Then, I set off on another adventure.
On Wednesday I move into a house at Wamuran. I will be house sitting there for 6 weeks. YeeHaa!! Internet!!!
Wamuran? or Wam as the locals call it, is a little town on the D’Aguilar Highway. It is a fruit growing area – in the past more for its pineapple plantations, of which there are still some. There is a big mango farm behind the house I will be staying at, and nearby there’s strawberries and other berries.
DOG, CAT AND TEN PIGEONS
There is a dog, with escapologist tendencies, and an indoor cat (not allowed outside), and 10 pigeons in a nice cage not far from the house. There’s also lot of garden to look after. I will be there for six weeks. Oh, how I am looking forward to that. Hoping to get a lot of writing done. There’s also NANOWRIMO during that time, November the big writing month. So perhaps I can participate.
Oh, I do hope I don’t continue to have online challenges.
