My parcel still hasn't arrived. It's almost three weeks since it was posted in England. Mr A has spoken to the man at the sorting office several times, who in turn has phoned the sorting office in Mugla, but no-one can find my parcel. The man said to Mr A "all you can do is wait". Mr A said to me "all you can do is wait".
Last night my internet connection was lost again. It's exactly a week ago almost to the time that the same thing happened. I phoned TTNet again (I really don't know why I bother). They hadn't any idea what the problem was (they never do). They informed me they would report it to the engineers, and that all I could do was wait. Thankfully I was re-connected again this morning.
Mr A was due to start his job in Kusadasi today. He was advised to go over there before today, in case they had unexpected customers, so he could be called in at short notice. He waited...and waited and wasn't called in. In the meantime of course he is paying to stay in a hotel..what a waste of money.
So he turned up today to start work. The boss wasn't there, so Mr A phoned him. He informed Mr A that there was nothing for him to do this week. Mr A would just have to wait until Monday afternoon. So he's waiting. Pity the boss couldn't have forewarned him.
And I find myself consciously waiting and very much looking forward to my next trip to England on 18th April, to see my daughter and grandsons.
I'm pleased to say that the weather is gradually improving, so waiting doesn't seem half so bad when the sun is shining.
