I just called to say . . .

An hour and a quarter just to be shown how a phone works!

We're having a new VOIP system installed at work this week and we've all had to have 'training' in readiness. Now call me old fashioned, but I reckon a phone is just for picking up and talking to people . . . simple. Well, not if you use one of these jobbies.

Why do I need 99 quick dial numbers (I don't know 99 people!)?
Why do I need a built-in in-house directory with thousands of numbers?
Why do I need to know who's calling me when I've got to answer anyway?
Why does the caller need to listen to a tune if I'm transferring them?
Why do we need 30 ring tones? I can't wait for the cacophony.

Phones are just a nuisance anyway - people keep interrupting me!!!!!

Now don't get me started on mobiles . . .

Change is as good as a rest

I've been blogging elsewhere for the last year or so and thought it might be an idea to try a different 'host'.

I've had a weekend of pottering around in the garden and doing a few chores - washing the kitchen floor, vacuuming my car etc . . . life in the fast lane!

I did take a few pictures in the garden yesterday.
