    Hi, as the thread is getting longer and my internet connection is not that reliable, to simplify things, I have now opened this new thread.

    Good morning to @Logan and @BigC and whoever comes by .. Have a nice day, just in case my ISP shuts me up..

    What kind of language is that? Wot? Eh? LOL!

    In the end, I went to twitter and straight away internet back on for more than 20 minutes.. Whoa! What a record.. I told the operative that his talking to me miraculously cured the connection. Without the internet, I felt like being cut out of the outside world. I saw all the notifications and when I clicked view this post.. it gave me no joy and another page of no connection.

    Good morning, after several unable to loads and DNS isn't responding, we're here..

    GOOOOOD MORNING TO ALLLLLL - The ceiling has been plastered. Son did it with a friend. After drying, we will tackle the other wall and the floorboard. At this rate, we will be swimming in it till Christmas. Thank heavens son hasn't got a job yet or the other way round? He has learnt how to plaster the ceiling and for once, he got along well with another older man.

    Went to look at Ryobi lawnmower again. The lady staff said that they sell all the bits cheap, but the battery costs an arm and a leg. So after all the frisson, came home empty handed, but bought some bargains. Don't think I can upload the pics as the internet is now OFF!

    @Upsy Daisy I am fine and give my best wishes to your sis. Will post in your thread if I can get there.

    Very dull and warm here, in my short sleeve T shirt. Just pulled the filter through the wall to get this connection. Miraculously, Yorkshireman sent me an email and ta-ra, internet is back on!

    Planted all the wallflowers, took berry out. Did a few other things, went to sit down, but the boys got there before me. At least they left me one space.;)

    @BigC we've always been with Virgin Media just for the internet,£43.00 a month. BT for the phone, don't know how much that is. We only have terrestrial TV.

    I wanted to click Like, but decided not to as it took ages for the click to translate into You and ??? like this. Engineer is coming on Thursday. The phone is ringing Yorkshireman and I am sitting here typing away. And miraculously, the internet has come back after ringing that number.
