Thankful Thursday

First of all I have to get this off my chest .... I am a bit flabbergasted in regards to our internet connection. It gets reset on the 26th of each month. A short time ago I checked to see how much we had used so far this month (we are on the 4th day of the new month)  My chin just about hit the floor when I saw how much of our peak internet usage has been used. A WHOLE 27GB for peak and 12GB for off-peak. We get 80GB for our peak times & 120GB for our off-peak.
I don't know what has been going on. The boys have been told to stop video chats & playing certain games online (I don't think they realise how much bandwidth gets chewed). I was also thinking perhaps that our wireless access password had been cracked so we changed the it. Let's hope that helps. So if I disappear anytime soon its because our internet connection has been throttled back to dial-up speeds again (it happened on Christmas Day so we just waited until 11pm when the off-peak kicks in).

Anyway now my whining is over on to my usual Thursday post ...


Here's what I am thankful for this week:
  • My new kindle. I am enjoying reading a lot more. I am currently reading The Ancient Future: The Dark Age by Traci Harding (an Australian author) and its really good :D
  • Angus - because he said he is AWESOME.
  • Mark because he encourages me to go yarn shopping (You just have to love that!)He told me this morning that he is an enabler & I agreed. Although I am one too when it comes to whatever he wishes to buy for his shed/shack/man-cave!
  • Brodie because he helps move BIG stuff that I can't move on my own & he can get things from shelves that I can't reach

What are you thankful for this week?
