Return to the Geneacave

It has been nearly six months since I have been able to access my genacave and its resources. Today I was finally able to sit at my desk.

During our house renovations my geneacave was used as a storeroom and was packed to the rafters with boxes and tubs. My files and books were hidden behind this mountain of stored items so my geneactivities were restricted to what I could do on the internet. I have let some of my genearesponsibilities slip during the upheaval and now need to play catchup.

Thankfully we were able to take a couple of holidays while the builders took over the house.  We managed to get home late on Christmas Eve so we could spend Christmas with the family.

We escaped from the renos
The renos are nearly completed and we are putting the house back together. First priorities were packing the kitchen, bathrooms and our wardrobes. Today I decided it was time to find my desk and I have managed to make a pathway there.

It was so good to sit on my office chair and connect my external monitor and scanner. I sifted, sorted, scanned and tossed some of the papers that we had dumped in there. I have so much physical and digital filing to do but at least I now have access to my technology.

Alas, when I tried to connect to the internet the signal was very poor, even worse than we endured on our recent cruise. My modem/router is downstairs at the opposite end of  the house from my study and I have to wait for the builder to come back from his holiday to see where I can now connect it.

So here I am working at our dining table in the living room where I can get an internet connection. At least the view is good and the breeze refreshing.
