The connection on the internet was broken and so the provider had to come out and fix it.
I am impressed at how quickly they did it considering how long it took them to fix my phone when that broke!
Being minus the internet has encouraged Beauty to play more with different things and we have spent the last 2 days clearing the front garden. The sand pit has been emptied of old sand and all that is left is for me to do is to wash out the pit and fill it with the new sand that I have bought.
This weekend I shall concentrate on the back garden, I have bought plants and I shall sort out the planters today.

Beauty has re-discovered a DVD of nursery rhymes and is playing them constantly which is so much better than the mini videos that she watches on the internet. On the computer she has the ability to start and restart a video like a DJ scratching and that is starting to drive me crazy.

However, after the millionth viewing of the DVD I am sure it will 'disappear' like Westlife CDs in the past!
A PIECE OF USELESS INFORMATION .....Did you know that I know all the lyrics to the album Parachutes by Coldplay.

Belle played it constantly when she was in the sixth form doing her A levels.

She also introduced me to Eminem!

Good that they came out and fixed your connection so fast.

Yay - good to see you back on-line. I had toyed with the idea of getting to grips with our garden too but a heavy fall of snow has soon put paid to that... funny that I don't feel at all disappointed!




An Irish Blessing

(A Blessing from St. Patrick)
May the road rise to meet you,

May the wind be always at your back,

May the sun shine warm upon your face,

May the rains fall soft upon your fields,

And, until we meet again,

May God hold you in the hollow of His hand.
