In one of the big storms on Thursday we lost power and the phone lines. It was only for an hour or so and there was a lot of chainsawing somewhere in the village. We still have lost one of the phone lines which just happens to be the one with everything on it including the Internet. John had a hell of a time with Sky to put out an engineer so we've now reverted to BT, who have GB based call centres, but we are still waiting, but it is the weekend. Thank goodness for the iPhones even though it's hard work using them sometimes! Stitch work is doing well. Ellie has found her routine with us and the other dogs so I have more little bursts of time. I have even managed to also pick up a pencil or brush most days too just for a quick 10 minute play with paper etc. to try and stretch myself a little. Hopefully all will be resumed shortly!
