When you get use to having a luxury, then it is taken away and then you get it back, you are all the more appreciative of having it.
For a year and a half Joshua and I have been without a home phone. Because we are now living in our own place (well, Mum and Dad's place) not a rented unit, we now have a home phone! Oh the luxury. My mobile bill is now going down drastically.
And we also have the internet after a month without it. So you can expect a bit more activity on here : ).
