I would like to apologise if (and I am pretty sure you have) had trouble accessing my site. Each night this week from about 8pm Australian Eastern time, my site has become inaccessible. Firstly my hosting company said it was due to faulty hardware which they replaced. Then they needed to replace the hardware they replaced (!), because it was faulty.
Then I don’t really know what happened last night (the hosting company have fixed the problem but with no explanation), but everything totally disappeared! That one really freaked me out, because as I have had so much trouble with the site, I hadn’t backed up for five days.
Given that I don’t start working on the blog usually until 8pm once I have all the children off to bed, I have not been able to do as much as I would have liked to on the blog this week. I am really hoping that this is the end of it, because I have had such a frustrating and time wasting week. It made me feel quite grumpy and very angry towards my hosting company.
However, perspective is a wonderful thing and I did have the opportunity to read a few amazing posts this week. A post from Alison at Three Times Kewl – now she has the right to be angry and a post on PreSchool Mama about a mother who really deserves to be angry and frustrated at a system that allowed her child (who has Asperger’s) voted out of his kinder class.
I also have a couple of good friends in the real world who are going through some of the hardest times of their life. My site may have not been working properly but family is alive, beautiful and well and I am healthy. Things really aren’t that bad!
