Excuses and Daisies

I have not been about for a while as last Tuesday the contractor who cuts the grass verges managed to cut through the cable at the base of the telegraph pole. There were about 9 of us that were cut off. BT made very little effort to get it repaired so I had no phone and no internet.

One of the 9 people is a 95 year old gentleman who relies on the telephone line for his alarm if he is in trouble (suffers with angina). Anyway the family had to stay with him in shifts as it was not safe to leave him. They are such a lovely family. His daughter got on to our local councillor who took up the challenge and had many rows with BT on our behalf. He threatened them with the newspapers if it did not get sorted very quickly as some of the other people are also elderly and need the phone. Well, it took eight days before it was fixed and sure enough it was repaired and it was also reported in our local Evening Telegraph. Shame on BT.....

I have been playing withe various flower tutorials that have been around recently so, when my class meets next month, we will be flowery.

Colours: Marina mist, baja breeze, whisper white, cajun craze.
Accessories:
