Hi everyone! I'm back from a very sunny Paris@!
We arrived home on Tuesday evening and I had hopes of catching up with some TV and linking to TSFT...not to be!
Virgin, our internet, TV and phone provider had got down totally! We still had our mobile phone and terrestrial TV, but by the time we had had something to eat and drink and found the help line phone number it was getting late. The engineer we spoke to said he could detect nothing on our internet and would send an engineer on Thursday morning!
When we got up in the morning still nothing - then suddenly just after nine everything bounced back to life and our duty manager announced on the intercom that for all Virgin subscribers the power had now been restored - it was a local 'thing'!
Wendy, our HKA came and then we had to go out for a food shop(and a visit to Styal Mill where we also had lunch!!)
When I came to the computer to upload my photos and it just kept refusing to accept them, hubby to the rescue doing it the long way round via his phone and laptop.
I was just about to start a blog post and POW!!...everything went down again and remained that way until bedtime(there had also been a brief blip during the daytime too)
To top it all the fire alarm went off at 5.45 this morning- if there is a fire in the building everyones fire alarm goes off. We were told it was a false alarm!
I went to get a drink and noticed that we were still not connected!
At around 8-15 when we got up everything seems to be normal.....and now the washing machine is acting up!!!
So...for now I have a journal page that I made on Eurostar on the way home - there weren't so many folk on the train and we had a whole table to ourselves so it was out with glue, ink and scissors and I made this page.
Some scraps of paper, doodling, a little bit of random stamping using one of my new stamps_ I wiped across it with a tissue as I didn't want it too bold and some stickers!
I am quite pleased with it and I am linking to Art Journal Journey where Alison's theme 'Recycle and Collage' has only a few more days to run.
I hope to be back later with another page I made on the journey!
Meanwhile, off to check the washing machine again to see if it will work - maybe it doesn't like the amount we seem to be giving it!!!
Thanks for looking, Chrisx
