I'm whispering this as I don't want to tempt fate and lose our connection again. We have been back online again since Thursday after a visit from a very lovely BT engineer. Before he arrived I suddenly had a connection again but it soon disappeared. After much testing and fiddling with a new router the connection came back again and so far each day I have managed to get online - lets hope this is the last of our problems. We still have 16 months of our contract left to run with our ISP so we will be off after that - not sure who with yet but several friends and family have mentioned that O2 are good and have good customer support so we shall see.
So what have I been up to whilst I have had no internet - well I have done loads of reading and read the first four Vampire Diaries books, I am now on book 5 and have book 6 in the pile ready to read. I have started making my mince pies for the freezer though we have eaten quite a few of them too LOL. I have an empty ironing basket - a rare achievement for me. And I have done dreaded housework too. We have had a five day break in the Lake District but sadly both of us had stinking colds whilst away so didn't enjoy it as much as we should have.
I haven't done any scrapbooking but have made loads of Christmas cards for my second fundraiser which I did on Friday - I will put up some photos of that soon.
We also went to see this band in Eastbourne
I was a big fan of Level 42 in the 80s but never got a chance to see them live so it was great to see them at last. I had forgotten how much good stuff they had done and it wasn't long until the whole theatre was on its feet dancing.
It was also nice to see a band at our local theatre - we usually have to trek over to Brighton to see anything decent.
