Rejoice! Our email seems to be working. Good grief, Carruthers, break out the gin and book the dancing girls. Or nearest equivalent. After spending yet another hour on the phone to BT last night, they finally told poor Lord H that what had been happening was that the BT Yahoo account had unilaterally decided that everything sent into our inboxes was spam and was therefore delivering none of it. Now if only they’d thought to check that before … Still the people were very nice and hey it’s always good to talk. Ho ho.
So now we have access to the Yahoo account and I have rescued my missing emails. Phew! Which apparently means that the system will relearn that they are not spam and will possibly even send them to us. You never know. In the meantime, we know how to access the basic BT system so are able to keep an eye on it. Cue evil laughter …
At work, I’m attempting to keep my head down and not have to think too much. So no change there then. And my Thorn in the Flesh launch chef, Douglas, is already planning the menu for 27 February. It suddenly makes it seem much more real and even exciting (rather than terrifying). Gosh indeed! I’ve warned him about my allergy to crab though – it gives me asthma. My, that would make the launch memorable for sure. But possibly not for the right reasons.
This lunchtime, I’m skipping my Pilates class (naughty me) to have coffee with Sally from Student Advice instead. All very civilised. And tonight, I’m off to a poetry launch for local poet Keith Please’s latest collection, Firestrikes, coincidentally enough also at the Godalming Museum – so I can be underhand and get ideas for my own launch at the same time, aha …
Though I do have to be back in time for “Torchwood” – we have to keep Surrey safe from the alien threat, don’t you know!
Today’s nice things:
1. Getting my email back
2. Coffee with Sally
3. Thinking about the launch.
