My hubby is such a muppet..argggggggghhhh....well a few weeks ago our internet connection (with sky) started to run really, really slow so hubby foned them up to upgrade our speed (with having 4 computers running off one connection) but they told him we were already recieving the highest speed....So when the girlies went to bed we tried to find out which puter was slowing it down...much to my hubby's amazement (even tho I have been saying for weeks theres a either a prob with my lappy or the web connection argggggggghh) that it didn't make any difference if it was just mine or if all 4 were online.....
So anyways he decided to tell me last night we are changing from Sky to Virgin because their top speed is quick or something, and they are coming next Thursday to sort out my V-box and internet...and the Sky internet will stop tomorrow argggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggghhhh no internet for a week!!!! argggggggggggggggggghhhh think I need a good divorce solicitor, oh I could of cried...but anyways if I go missing you now know why...I'm in prison for murder lololol
