Last week, I was on a family holiday – and the sun shone too. And, for the record, it’s still a holiday even if you don’t go abroad. It’s only a staycation if you stay in your own home.
Sadly, I’ve been strugging with mobile connectivity recently. I finally got around to putting a 5G SIM in my phone. Since then the 3/4G signal has been awful and I haven’t even seen 5G. giffgaff’s Twitter support were worse than useless, eventually demanding a list of personal information in a direct message including things they should know (like the identifier of the SIM they had sent me, which Android refused to show me). In the end, I gave up as I needed a SIM removal tool… I’ll try again this week, now I’m back home.
Meanwhile, in parts of Dorset, I even got a French mobile signal (when I couldn’t get an English one…)
I may be struggling to get a 3/4/5G signal with giffgaff at the moment but I could pick up a signal from France whilst I was walking in Dorset (southern England) this afternoon… ????? pic.twitter.com/kAE1YvqzwU— Mark Wilson (@markwilsonit) June 1, 2021
One evening, whilst discussing family history, I found that my wife’s Great Great Grandfather was quite possibly murdered in the 1890s! The Coroner’s report suggests the body was found buried in a sitting position – so that sounds like foul play. It’s unclear whether there was a severed hand found nearby with some money but the newspaper says “hat” so that may be translation!
