Only half done.

The BT engineer has been here all morning and has located my Broadband problem as being an outside problem.   But unfortunately he has just been to tell me that he has "run out of time" - meaning that his shift has finished and as he lives in Durham he has to leave now.   The problem is an outside one and I am now 'back in the queue'.  Ah well, I can only be philosophical about it, otherwise I would go scatty.

At present my blue light is showing, so I shall leave just a short post.

Our day out yesterday, meeting my God-daughter and having a lunch out, was - as usual - a lovely day.  (Prawn starter, roast beef with the trimmings, coconut and pineapple pannacotta for me).

I took a photograph of the Mallerstang, especially for Gwil, as I know he has fond memories of walking it.   So here you are Gwil - just for you:

Fond memories. Thank you Pat. I shall in due course reciprocate.

How frustrating.

Are you are the back of the queue or the front?

Pineapple panna cotta? I have got to try and make that. It sounds heavenly.

Oh, those outside problems! We once had one that was descended upon frequently by various crews. It was all summer being resolved, one year.

Sounds like what I had.... a tiny wire come loose somewhere!

You are right to be philosophical about it; as long as you can't do much (or anything) about it, it's no use getting worked up about it.
Great scenery there!

I find that, in life, being philosophical about things can make a WORLD of difference in our level of happiness...

Amazing picture, by the way.

Gosh that photo looks so empty and wild - beautiful. Permanent connection with the internet will happen eventually, perhaps the reason the BT engineer had to come from Durham is because there are not enough service engineers anyway.

What a beautiful photo - all that space and peace and quiet. I love the way the sunlight just hits the top of the hill in the distance. Very soothing and far better than tranquilizers for ridding ourselves of our frustrations.
I do hope you get your Broadband problems sorted soon. I am once again prevented from using webmail. It returned briefly yesterday and I was able to delete loads of emails, mostly unwanted, but I daresay there will be another load when it has been restored. I shall have another word with technical support to find out what is going on.
Your lunch sounded delicious and what a lovely day to make the trip.

Beautiful hills. So glad that you had a lovely lunch out but frustrated for you that your Broadband has`t been sorted out.

Thank you for your comments about the blue tits. Good to know that you have a similar family in a hole in a wall!

Glad you liked the photograph Gwil.

Thanks for all the sympathy and support folks - we'll get there with Broadband one day. On at the moment so taking advantage.

Some view! Quite different from our sea and hedgerows which are, of course, lovely. But this has made my heart miss a beat.

Lovely countryside. Half done is not good - waiting is annoying I know - but we do enjoy hearing from you when you can get online.
