Speed Craft Challenge 3 & Really?
Hi! How are you all this dark and murky Thursday. We’ve been busy- that is the group of girls playing along with Speed Craft Challenge & set up a blog for the challenge here-It’s simply called www.speedcraftchallenge.blogspot.co.uk . Due to the fact I have severely limited connection (aka my phone)- I’ve not been able to complete an Inlinkz link- but bear with us- we should have one up soon. In the meanwhile, if you fancy joining in, you can always leave a link in the comment.
Do go visit- it’s a lovely smart new site, and hopefully will be great fun!
Ok- so..onto today. It was my turn to pick. I chose this photo as inspiration
Some of the other girls thought it was hard- I just saw lots of options. Click to go Pam Garrison’s blog- it’s her upcycled garland.
It’s more eclectic than I usually do. Had I more time, I’d have die-cut some felt out too. The stamp set is from WPlus9 called Dockside. The leaves are from Xcut and the papers are random ones I’ve had in for a while. Buttons and charms from Papermania.
Do join in.. it is fun and a massive sense of achievement. Think of how many cards you could make if they all took you 10 minutes! Do go and check out the blog for the list of all the other crafters joining in the hop
I’m trying to remain calm whilst getting on with life. Sky are still silent.
My 33 minute phone-call yesterday went along the lines of ‘Mrs Baker.. please check all your details’.. because we think it’s your fault initially.
Then we progressed to how to cope with the problem.
I asked what exactly the problem was..appears that quite likely, it was the engineer transferring our phone line, not transferring it properly. Apparently the issue is it ‘that they’re a little snowed under right now’.
We then had a little chat about what we were supposed to do in the meanwhile. I work from home, my kids need internet for their work. What are we to do?
The call handler’s response was to ask if I had nice neighbours and ‘borrow some of their wi-fi’.
I’m not sure either of our neighbours have ‘that’ much spare data. We use a ton.
‘oh- and then you could buy them a nice bottle of wine to say thankyou’.
I answered him quite incredulously
‘so, we go and beg our neighbours to ‘borrow’ their wi-fi and buy them a nice wine at our expense for a mistake caused by you;.
He remained quite quiet at this point.
We then talked about using my phone. I asked if Sky would compensate me for all my phone data useage which I was quite likely to have used up in the process of 2 days.
Again, he remained strangely silent.
The upshot is,, we await a call on Saturday to work out what the problem is?!!! Then they book an appointment to come out to fix it.
So- we have no phone. No internet.
The kids are despairing. I kid you not.
No homework, coursework, game time, etc.
I am so ready to get internet access- you just try and transfer money on your money!
Hope you are all enjoying surfing. At this rate, I’ll be living in an internet café.
See you.. hopefully when I’m back in the land of the (cyber)living!! xx
