If you follow the link you will see why.
Having limited internet access is what really sucks right now.
Well I am comfortable enough in B & B for now and I have recovered the things that are important to me.
All will be well in the long term, but in the short term, it is difficult for me to maintain my various responsibilities, however it is important to me not to pass my misfortunes on to any one else and let them down with regard to stuff I had arranged to do with them.
Talk about fifteen minutes of fame, our block was headline news taking up two pages in the local paper yesterday.
More to follow when my situation is back to normal, sorry no video of the fire, safety comes first, but I hope to post a video diary or something on youtube :)
I have never looked smarter BTW, had to buy new clothes cos I only had what I stood up in, which smelt like a barbecued kipper.
Anyway my flat is relatively undamaged as I was furthest away from the seat of the fire, but if the fire brigade had not attended so promptly it might have been a different story.
The sh*t comes from dealing with all the bureaucracy you have to go through just to keep any kind of roof over your head.
I am through the worst of it now and have been able to go back and recover some essential items from my flat including my flute, documentation (which you don't even exist without these days) and my precious video hard discs which I was working on when the fire broke out and had to abandon.
