Due to a fault at an Auckland substation thousands of Aucklanders were without Internet access last night and today. I was one of the thousands and have suffered through the 24 hour downtime with great impatience. I dislike my ISP. I’d change if it wasn’t such a huge hassle.

Hubby and I went to do our shopping today. Hubby made me wear my sunglasses and suggested that I wear jeans. I wore shorts and took off my glasses in the glasses place so they could fix a bit that had fallen off. No one said a word, although they kept taking furtive looks at my very colorful eye. If anything my black eye looks worse than it did when I first fell off my bike and cut it – sort of purple, red and now a bit of yellow creeping in. As I said – colorful.

I’m blogging at the Samhain blog on Saturday morning. My post is about Women Taking a Stand. All will become obvious when you read my post. Here’s the link.

    Oh no – hope you heal quickly! Big *hugs*.

    Glad your fall wasn’t worse. Feel better real soon and take care.

    Big hugs, too,

    Eeks! No internet AND a black eye!!
    If that ain’t fodder for your next book…

    Hope you heal quickly. In the meantime, walk a pace behind your hubby and when strangers notice your eye, quirk your head toward the DH.

    I’m actually feeling a lot better and look worse than I feel. People have been so weird though. If it was me, I’d ask what happened but they take one look at my eye, glance at my husband and carry one. Weird!
