I am very excited to tell you that, at last, we have fibre broadband. Now, I know there are many of you out there, that have fibre and you've been uploading and downloading with ease. Not so in these parts. BT decided that it was "not viable" for them to connect about 200 houses. Some community minded individuals set up a group and lobbied BT. They said "Oh alright then but you need to pay our profit." This was roughly £25,000 so each household has paid what they were prepared to/what they could afford. It's taken a while but we're now connected. In fact that is one of the reason that my blogging has become sporadic of late, I get very cross with sitting and waiting to upload photos and Sunday evenings were impossible.
Today it has taken me a few minutes to upload the following pictures instead of half an hour ~ waaaayyyyyyyyy.
Something else that is super, whizzy, fast, my Afmaeli jumper. I've completed the body and I'm nearly to the top of the first sleeve. That's the beauty of knitting in aran weight yarn!We had a go at putting up our new tent which will take us to our music festival next weekend. This went up in our neighbour's front garden in a super, whizzy, fast 20 minutes. The dog approved, it has a sleeping pod and enough room to sit in as well. I may be going to a festival but I'm not crawling in and out of a tiddly tent! As you can see there was brilliant sunshine when we tried it. Not so today, there is more rain. I'm keeping everything crossed that it stops for next week.
And the last super, whizzy, fast thing, Master Clicky when fielding in cricket. He dives at the balls to stop them hitting the boundary rope and giving the opposition six runs, only trouble is, with all this rain, the ground is muddy. Not sure these will ever be white again.
So that's me for now. I'm off to do some ironing, yes you've guessed it, super, whizzy, fast and then I can get back to knitting.
See you soon, have a great week........Clicky Needles.
