They worked like cheerful Trojans all evening, making a shocking mess of the kitchen and dining areas as all the computer gear (except for mine and the printers), desks, kilometres of cabling, plastic boxes of obscure geeky paraphernalia was dispersed to make room for all my STUFF..it was scary how much equipment needed to be removed from space A and then be shoehorned into space B..(amazing how much dust there was also but we won't go there!)...
I was rudely awoken this morning by Pig just before four am as he thought he might want to go outside for a walk, I had been asleep since 1230 am after all...since then it has been all systems go getting it organised. I let the lads sleep until about seven o'clock, wasn't that generous of me?... made them tea and got them moving. It is now late afternoon and all is done.
Tim is happy...he now has his own desk, his (my) laptop all set up with two screens and I no longer have the frustration of having him set up all over the living room every evening - a definite win/win!
Chris will have his space to himself (when Tim isn't sharing it) and will be able to speak freely once more when engaging with his mates online...I am sure I cramped his style no end when I was sharing with him.
But, best of all...I have a space all of my own...I can craft, video, (in the daylight), work at my uni assignments etc without interruption or interference!
What a JOY!
So, anyway, Chris did something magical to our internet connection when he was setting himself back up in his new cave, with the result that we had NO internet connection at all. After several hours he managed to speak to someone who helped sort it out and I can now get on with the assignment I had intended to commence this afternoon...except that while I was waiting I made a birthday gift tag for Tim's sister's birthday because she does meet some of the parameters of the SBB September challenge. Tim usually doesn't say until the last minute if he wants a card made for someone, so I can feel smugly content that there is something ready and waiting for him that should fit the bill, at least where his sister is concerned!
Having made the tag I need to get it posted here on my blog in order to get it loaded onto the SBB site before anything else happens with this little network of ours...so it looks as if the uni assignment will just have to wait another day.
