Roof timbers and changing a pay as you go telephone plan
During breakfast I could hear a massive amount of serious hammering coming from the roof. It appears that there is a hole in the felt and that water has been trickling in over the years and is starting to rot the roof timbers.
I have a pay as you go phone here in Italy. The coverage is very good and the cost is very good as well. Included in the deal is 50 hours of 3G internet per calendar month. Each month a sum is taken from my account to cover this internet access. As we are to be leaving Italy for a few months this plan is no longer of much use to me. For some reason the WIND.IT website doesn’t like any of my credit cards so I need to do all transactions in the phone shop. I went to said phone shop last week and, although the shop was open, the woman who does the work was not there and no one else felt confident about changing my payment plan. Like the idiot I am I completely forgot that today is Monday and strolled up the road to try again. Today, being Monday, the shop was closed. Perhaps I will have more success tomorrow.
After a really nice stroll in the sunny weather I spotted the wood man who failed to deliver the logs. He looked suitably abashed but his overly dramatic gestures of amazement at his poor memory did not mollify me or lessen my irritation.
