Wordless Wednesday #88

Another photo from our 2016 #adventuredownunder, here’s hoping we’ll shortly be able to visit once again.

Cee’s Flower of the Day #111

What fun showcasing beautiful flora – flowers, shrubs, trees, bushes and leaves – throughout the year. These are my late mother’s favourite flowers and we’ve clumps of them all over the Domaine just coming into flower. Cee’s challenge is all about bringing a little… Continue Reading “Cee’s Flower of the Day #111”

Cee’s Flower of the Day #110

I’m back! Well partly at least, we still have to reset security system which may be later today or tomorrow. Please bear with me as it’ll take some time to get up and running again after being without WiFi for so long. I’m starting… Continue Reading “Cee’s Flower of the Day #110”

D Day – 2

If all goes well, our WiFi should be restored Monday afternoon. I have received endless emails and telephone calls from Orange to confirm the visit of their engineers. It’s been a very long 4 plus weeks and a complete pain in the proverbial. Once… Continue Reading “D Day – 2”

And now……

At the end of last week I decided that trying to get Orange to reconnect my office line and WiFi service was proving well nigh impossible. Of course, I’ve still no idea how or why I was disconnected but we’ll get into that (and… Continue Reading “And now……”

One from the vaults: Daddy’s girls

As if it couldn’t get any worse……

Switched on my office laptop this morning and the on/off button appears to have given up the ghost. It’s a Dell which has rendered over 11 years of faithful service. To be honest, I only use it really for our company stuff but obviously… Continue Reading “As if it couldn’t get any worse……”

Song Lyric Sunday #45

This week’s prompt for Jim Adams’ Song Lyric Sunday Challenge is Greet/Hey/Howdy. Lighting on the “Hey” I immediately thought about one of my fave songs by one of my fave artists, oft featured here. In my book, you can’t have too much Lenny. Thinking… Continue Reading “Song Lyric Sunday #45”

No Internet Service on Horizon

Yes, we’re now well into our third week without any office telephone line or internet service. The sad thing is that I have no real idea of when it will be restored. Lots of promises, but zero actions. It’s fair to say that Orange… Continue Reading “No Internet Service on Horizon”
