Well, everything seems to be back up and running again. Goodness, I was lost without my internet connection and my virtual world. It was made easier by the fact that I could still connect at school but I have several online communities - Facebook, the Open University Students' Association, Blogger (of course), my mailbox and the various other blogs that I read regularly - and not connecting felt hard.
It's such a different world nowadays, isn't it - so very, very different! And it's nice to be back!
