We were supposed to be getting super-duper-extra-speedy broadband in the village.
It was promised for June and for about 6 months before that,
all the substations were situated and wired up ready to go.
Just a few select parts of the village have that super-duper-extra-speedy broadband,
we still have snail speed....
Any hoo - the substation down the main road has given me the number I needed!
I am staggered at your lovely comments about my attempts of window decorating - thank you :) I had also drawn on the French doors at home, but the pictures I took were not that great - however Eldest, despite feeling rather ill, patientially set up the tripod and took this image for me :
With all the torrential rain we have had recently, we opted to stay at home dry and quietly grateful that we live on the side of a hill and all the surface water just runs down the road and in to the calvert.
My heart goes out to all the villagers in the north of Lancashire and in Cumbria who have been hit by the flooding.
We had a festive get together last night over in Hebden Bridge with Himself's side of the family. Usually we are the last to arrive (this is quite normal for us....) however we were one of the first to arrive despite the huge lake-sized puddles and landslides on route. Members of family were being diverted miles around due to blocked roads, stalled cars and collapsing roads. The evening was spent happily catching up with news, stories and gossip as we enjoyed a lovely meal. Fortunately by the time we'd finished, the rain had stopped and the puddles had shrunk to more manageable sizes.
I might have another festive Ta-Da! to share with you tomorrow!
