Hi everyone — thanks for your good wishes. We’re in Toronto now, and the move went very smoothly — except for communications. There are no phone jacks in our house, and they won’t be installed until Wednesday, so we have no land line, just our cell phones — which we’ve finally switched to Toronto numbers, so nobody has our numbers, so can’t call us. And we had our cable internet installed on Thursday, but it hasn’t worked since it was installed — which is very annoying, and made more so by Rogers’ seeming lack of interest in fixing it, telling us how long it will be until it’s fixed, or in any way being concerned at the fact that the problem is entirely on their end and it’s now been three days since we were supposed to be connected, and we still aren’t. Not impressive, especially considering how much important stuff I do online — like changing our addresses with all the many, many companies who like to know where we live.

I’m writing this at the house of some good friends, while I’m doing laundry (and feeding their cat). I’m sorry I haven’t replied to all the comments from the last post — but I hope to be able to catch up fairly soon, if Rogers will cooperate.

And tell you all about the new house and neighbourhood, of course!

What a mess! Ian says check out, which is what we are now using in Nova Scotia, and it was instantly and magically available, and costs $10 a month.
Keep in touch (hah!hah!)

Ack! Not the internets! Hang in there, I hope it all gets taken care of soon :)

How annoying! But I’m glad you’ve moved in safe & sound.

Glad to hear you arrived safely. Odd the “no phone jacks”??? Considering it is an older home, I wonder what the previous owners used before cell phones? Hard to remember a time when we were not connected via the Net. Seems odd to wonder how we all coped before having access to everything on line. We depend on it so now…

Welcome to Toronto! A few years ago, I used to live in the area you’re in now. It’s great for exploring on foot. Enjoy!

Glad to hear the move went well.

Hope to see you soon.

Welcome to the east end!
Ah, Rogers…don’t get me started.

This comment is unrelated to this post, I hope that’s ok. I just stumbled across your blog and the post asking about knitters in Antigonish. If you still have questions, feel free to send me an email, I have the answers.
