Well certainly the washing and ironing is a boohoo but having a phone that works is an 'at last.' I have missed being able to reply to our Julia and the rest of you wonderful Woywwers out there over the last 4 weeks because, to be honest, this is the very first time that O2 has ever let me down.
I have had their connection for over 14yrs because it serves the majority of the places we go to - not any more. My mobile web connection, although archaic, is T-Mobile and that was much better, but I can't email from it. Well, looks like I have to do a-think when my contract is up in December.
The holiday - it was special. My DH hates all sport not related to motorbikes. We watched almost every minute of the olympics. I was in heaven and he is now a convert eagerly awaiting the paralympics. We met up with special friends but missed another. We had fantastic weather and we drank far too much, - who cares...... We laughed, we howled at late night comedy tv, we walked around wonderful places, saw birds and animals that made us stop and stare, we had ' do nothing days', we drove miles, we shopped in Asda for groceries and spent £'s in Trago Mills in Devon - but for me, the best part of the whole 4 weeks was sitting on the quay side watching the Sunseeker Yachts being built in Poole, Dorset. I simply adore that sight. It gives me dreams like no other. They are only for the super rich but I dream of the places they can take you. Magical, just magical.
I have already shared a very special day with you that I had with my pal Sylvia and hubby Reg. Asa and Kobe are starting to shed their unbelievable coats ready for the winter but will still look wonderful. Sylvia spoilt me with hand-made presents and I leave you with photos of my work space and their glory:
