We didn't get to Calais after all. The weather's been horrible here all day and was set to be the same across the Channel so we decided against it. It was a shame but at least we didn't waste much money as our fares were only £3 each.
Instead I stayed for my slimming club (1lb on this week thanks to the bread pudding) and then DH braved the rain to meet me in town. We went for a coffee before treating ourselves to a pick and mix salad box from Morrisons for our lunch.
This afternoon has been spent trying to sort out our internet connection with Sky. We only swapped to them 2 weeks ago and the last couple of days we've had all kinds of trouble. TV and phone have been fine, but internet is more important for us and at the moment it's pretty unreliable so we're not best pleased. I must say all the staff we've talked to have been wonderful, polite and helpful, but we've probably wasted 3 hours in total with 6 phones calls since yesterday, and them trying to talk us through resetting it all and some woman in the tech department even had DH unscrewing the phone connector from the wall this afternoon. I'm keeping my fingers crossed all is sorted now, but not counting on it. It makes me anxious to try and go online each time in case it doesn't work and we have to phone up yet again.
DH has a meeting tomorrow with his partner about the educational software business they're setting up. They generally meet in the Toby Inn across the road from the Westwood Cross shopping centre near Margate. I might have a drive out there with him, stay for breakfast (all you can eat for £3.99) and then have a wander around the shops (all under cover) while they natter on about the business. Hopefully the weather is set to improve towards the end of the week as we were hoping to drive to Tenterden and maybe even on to Hastings for the day.
That's the current plan, but all could change depending on the weather.
