The wifi in our apartment, always patchy, died sometime over the weekend. This has coincided with the near-death of the mister´s internet-enabled device. The internet on his device is fine, but the little swirling button that allows a person to navigate the screen can be rolled left, right and up, but not down. Unless you pull it apart then reinsert the swirling button so you can roll it left right and down, but not up.

I prefer life with the internet than without, but we´re on a rather fabulous holiday and I think it would be churlish to complain about anything in my life right now. If anyone has any ideas about how I could extend my life in Barcelona past this Friday please to be sharing them. Donations accepted.

I´d swap life in Abu Dhabi with the internet for a life in Barcelona without in a single beat of my heart. Half a heartbeat even.
