I Must Confess…I’m struggling to give up…
Writing this, I’m about to head off to my parent’s caravan for the weekend, where there is no wifi. There is some mobile reception but my parents do not own a computer and wouldn’t know what a dongle was if it hit them in the face.
Ok, in the interest of truth, maybe my politically incorrect Dad might have his own theory on that…anyway, moving on…
It’s scary to take your family, normally so dependent on the internet, away from their fix. Let’s be honest – what will we do with ourselves for the weekend? What is life without internet and wifi?
Will we actually have to interact and talk for a change?
We will obviously live and live well – I’m looking forward to a few screen free days away to recharge and spend a bit of time with the kiddos who will no doubt reward my long overdue attention with whining about how bored they are without wifi 😉
However, I am nervous myself about not having the backup of wifi. I will, of course, try to manfully hide it from the kids who will, no doubt, be begging me to take them to a wifi-ed-up Maccas by lunchtime Saturday.
But I will remain a little on edge all the same.
You see, I love this linkup. I love the fact it is growing nice and slow and strong. Do you know that 20 of you beautiful people linked up last week. 20! You made this mama duck so proud.
But that’s added to my sense of unease. I don’t want to stuff up your fun. Like a mama duck, I don’t want to leave my ducklings all alone stranded in a pond.
I’m hoping and praying the scheduling of the post works – that it does publish on 6am Monday morning.
I’m also hoping and praying that the linkup tool also activates at the same time.
Although I do this every week, and each and every week (bar one) the post publishes itself like magic, at least I have wifi to check if all is okay. At least I am there to fix any odd glitch that might threaten our weekly fun.
But today, I am still in the land where technology doesn’t exist so there is no safety net.
Ducklings, I hope all is okay in your world. But don’t stress too much about Mama Duck – I’ll be back in wifi land later today to read your tales and provide comforting words of wisdom.
And activate this post if the wifi gods are not on my side!
