Why Wont Skype send messages?

I'm in the US and I'm trying to chat with my friend in Australia. She's on her phone but has no connection problems. When ever a send her a message, it shows everyone on my contacts going offline and the "Not delivered yet" Wheel appears next to my message. It has literally taken twelve hours in the past to send a message. I know it is not because she is on her phone, or that she is in Australia because ALL of my contacts go offline, and it dos this when I try to message anyone! I am completely enraged at this, because this is the only way my close friend and I can chat, Is there any way to fix this?

What about your own connection status? Is it still shown as Online? The status icon (the one left of your name) must be solid green with a white checkmark inside.
