We have had some bright but windy weather, just look at the lovely colour in our birch tree against the blue sky.
In the kitchen the chills I threaded up are drying nicely and make a bright splash against the pale paint.
Well I did warn you, now for the RANT, Why do institutions you buy services from treat you like idiots, cheats or criminals when you have the gall to ask for the service you paid for to be correctly delivered or billed??? Our phone line crackled and the internet kept going on and off (hence lack of blogs lately) but the man on the phone said his network checks said there was nothing wrong with our line. Somewhat testily my husband suggested as it happened when it rained or was windy and those conditions did not happen inside our house they had better send an engineer. That request was followed by emails and 3 texts saying if it was our equipment that was wrong we would have to pay £120 for the engineer and they were sure we were wrong. Immediately we felt at fault and double, tripled checked everything on all the computers in the house and borrowing a phone and plugging that in. Still crackled.
Said engineer spent 3 hours up a wobbly telephone pole down the road in the teeth of a force 6 gale trying to find a fault his equipment said was 7 metres from the house. Then we get a text saying everything was fixed but we would have to wait 3 days for phone and broadband to get back up to speed. No apology for making us feel at fault and not being believed or the inconvenience of receiving for a bad product for good money paid in advance each month.
And don't get me started on billing departments!
