SLOW INTERNET

Hi everyone I hope you are all well.  Sorry I haven't been around to visit your blogs for a while but I do have a good excuse.


For the first time ever since I got my internet connected which was almost 8 or 9 years ago I reached my download limit. I couldn't understand why because I really don't get on the computer that much....who am I kidding....lol.  And then I figured it out, my son has been downloading games on his PS3. Once I reach my limit it runs on dial up speed which is so slow and very frustrating it took about 10 minutes just to open explorer so I just gave up and didn't even bother to try and get on. Natasha if you are reading this now I understand when you complain about reaching your limit.  I have upgraded my plan to the big KAHUNA and hopefully that won't be used up too quickly so I will be over to visit you all soon.



We have had some great weather over the weekend  We went to a friends today and all jumped in the pool.  The water was so cold but it was better than being out of the pool and putting up with the heat. 


Had to do alot of this today and we still got some colour. 



Do you remember this little guy do they still play the adds?

Not much has been happening around here just working on some orders and trying to keep up with all the craziness that is happening around this time of the year.  Christmas decorations are already in the shops and I can't believe christmas is only about 6 weeks away.  Where has this year gone.




Have a great week.

It's frustrating using up your limit, especially as it's always somebody else in the family who does it!
I remember the slip slop slap bird, boy did they drill us with that message!!

Hi Carol

I remember those days vividly, I upped my user quota, but really should now drop it back as I don't download movies or music, really a waste paying for the extra - thanks for the reminder!!

Thanks for voting too!
