18 – 19 April 2013:
Well, after a hectic few days, I am back and ready to do. Over the last day or so, I have been restoring my website because some lovely person decided to hack into it and cause me problems. This kind of thing happens from time to time, but I wasn’t expecting it to happen to me. I was very annoyed when I found my site had been hacked, but in a way it was a wake up call because I can analyze logs that will help me prevent this from happening again. I don’t know why they decided to pick my site as a target, it seemed very weird. I forgot to mention that Steve’s site (The Wright Times) was taken down also by the same hacker. I won’t mention how I fixed the sites or what I have done under the hood of the software, but I am hoping the extra work will prevent it from happening again. So, anyway, it was a challenge, but I got through it and it didn’t take me long to get them back online, the only problem I did have was when I noticed the time, it was 3am when I finished and I wasn’t happy!
I want to touch briefly on the mobile saga again, the updates are that they still haven’t fixed the issue and their first line support are still unable to get me reconnected. When they rung on Wednesday they seemed very apologetic, but it still didn’t stop them from trying to charge me for a service I can’t receive. So, to be brief, in the end they gave in and said they would give 50% off, which I wasn’t happy with because I shouldn’t have to pay anything. Anyway, I was checking my bill today and it turns out they were trying to charge me an extra £40, for no reason, when I saw that I hit the roof. I wasn’t prepared to pay them any money because I have no service, no one should be expected to pay anything hen it is the networks issue. When I rang them up to explain, they took on everything I said, but they were confused by what’s happened because there were no extra charges, I mean how could you get charges on a mobile phone that is unable to connect to their service, I swear they make it all up as they go along. So, with that said, they credited me back the right amount to correct the bill and they also took more money off because it was their problem (yet again). I hope that their higher management ring me soon or else I will be starting legal proceedings against them for breaking their own contract terms, everyone has this legal right, so don’t forget, if mobile companies screw you over, seek help from the right authorities because you signed a contract and this means that they have to keep to their word as well.

So, it turns out that the mobile company didn’t deduct anything yesterday, and there were no notes left about the call I made. I was livid with them because I haven’t had service for five weeks and they were expecting me to pay for it. I think they have lost the plot, I will not be paying for my service until it is working, they are breaking their own terms and conditions as it is. I will be on the phone to their regulator on Monday because this is utterly ridicules. Anyway, I will discuss this further on Monday.
Today has been a very relaxed day, even though I have had pains through my shoulder, but it hasn’t dampened my spirits. I have been in a funny mood since last night, I kept on sending jokes to K, she must think I am nuts because I laughed my head off at each joke, I must have a very weird sense of humor, but oh well that must mean I am unique. This good mood has been funny to say the least, I don’t know why it makes me very happy and weird, but it doesn’t matter, it is better than being deeply depressed and sad.
Anyhow, the rest of my afternoon has been spent shopping and going to McDonalds for some more McFlurries, and yes I am aware that I eat them too much, but they are tasty. I will challenge you all to try them, walk into your local McDonalds and ask them for a Cadbury Cream Egg McFlurry without the chocolate topping, you will thank me afterwards, but beware, don’t have more than two because you will start feeling sick, I have done this and it does upset your stomach. When I had three today, it started making me feel sick, but I think that’s because I haven’t had anything proper to eat all day.
When the evening was upon us, I decided to have the noodles I brought from Tesco’s earlier. I wasn’t very hungry, but I needed to eat something more than ice-cream and yogurts. So, with that said, mum prepared my noodles for me because I wasn’t able to due to my shoulder pains. I don’t know why my shoulder is like this at times, but I guess it is one of these things I have to put up with. Anyhow, to be brief, the noodles were really nice, and I know feel very stuffed! I am currently writing the blog and I feel like I want to sleep, it seems crazy all this tiredness. I had a good sleep last night, well apart from I woke up at 5am needing the toilet (I know too much information).
I can’t wait for bedtime to roll along, my head will hit that pillow and I will be knocked out. I must remember to take my tablets tonight, it might help with the pain I wake up with. I know this will sound bad, but I haven’t been taking my tablets how I am supposed to because I have been feeling bad with depression, I end up thinking screw it because I can’t be bothered to move.
Anyway, on that note, it is time to sign off. Let’s hope that things start going in the right direction because I have had enough of all these issues.
