Waiting for a new router


Hello Everyone
Just to let you know that my router decided to pack up this morning. I have to wait up to 5 days for Sky to deliver a new one (and pay £70 for it). I haven't told my children yet, I don't think they will be too happy!
I have just popped into the library quickly to send a few Emails but not sure when I will be able to get back online. I am hoping I may be able to use my mum's computer tomorrow so will hopefully catch up with some of my commenting then.
I hope everyone is okay.

Bye for now
