After working at our line yesterday the 'engineer' downed tools and bogged off on the dot of 5pm. Could we make calls? Yes Could we receive them? No. Pearlie is getting all our phone calls. That's OK during the day when she comes to the door and scrakes at the top of her feeble old-woman lungs, "Berteeeeee!" but at night when the soaps are turned up megavolume she hears nuttin'.
Phoned BT this morning and they said the 'engineer' would call between 1pm and 6pm. They lied.
But at least I can now blog from the comfort of the utility room which is the only room at present with a telephone connection.
