We lost our internet connection last night and after it had been playing up all evening, thought it was just poor service. It made for frustration for both of us, so we had to give up what we were trying to do. We actually had an early night, literally, and sort of caught up on missed sleep for the last couple of nights.
I never caught up with my Sunday challenges though, and now I am behind on Mondays too!
Hubby checked everything this morning and it would appear to have been a power outage which affected the internet throughout the country.
I made some cards yesterday as I intend to do the same as I did last year and send family envelopes to one address which will contain all birthday and anniversary cards until Christmas.
My great great nephew (my niece’s grandson) will be 6 on Christmas Day, so I’ll be sending his card too, just in case they celebrate a half birthday in June.
I don’t pretend it won’t save me money on postage (currently 67p first class and 58p second class), especially as stamps are going up on March 25th (70p and 61p), second class higher than what was agreed and Royal Mail have said they will donate the proceeds of the extra penny to charity. As most stamps these days have either 1st or 2nd on them and no monetary value showing, I don’t understand why they couldn’t simply drop the overcharged penny from the cost on their data base. After all, when prices go up or down in the shops we don’t have this fiasco. But then we are talking government here.
Apart from a Christmas card with my sister’s new address, I’ve heard nothing from Down South, neither do I expect to if I’m honest, but it is family.
As with some kits, you can split the layers and make two cards out of each, which is what I did with the Bunnies above and the Cake cards above that.
I made twelve in all, including the one for my uncles 90th birthday, which I need to add ‘Happy Birthday’ to on the bottom as I forgot!!!
It is a bother when the internet plays hooky but you caught up with your sleep.
That is a definite plus.
Those are cute!
It’s amazing how dependent we are on the internet. For most of my life we had no such thing and managed perfectly. Now I don’t know what to do with myself when it’s not working.
Likewise. I’d never used a computer until 1989!
I got my first — at work — in 1985 or 86.
At least I’ve got my own personal IT guy. I’m hopeless with tech stuff.
So am I. You’re lucky. I have to pay a tech guy.
At least your outage wasn’t planned and deliberate. Often our ‘load shedding’ has been exactly at the time I am able to do some blogging.
Sums it up nicely.
