What did you say?

Simon went for a hearing tear today following Vicky badgering about it – apparently he must be going deaf since he doesn’t listen…. 👂 👂

So the verdict is as follows:

Both ears are in good condition and there is nothing wrong with the hearing in either of them – they fall right inside the parameters of “good hearing”….

So, he needs to find a new excuse…..

Big Internet Day @ home

Hopefully today is the day that we receive upgraded internet here at home that can eep up with the needs of the household.

With living in a countryside environment, our broadband connection has never been that great and really suffered when the weather turns.

OpenReach have used our village as a test bed to trial Fibre to the Premises (FTTP) to be available in all homes and finally we are ready to make use of it.

The order was made on December 22 and today is installation day.

We should be treated (by tomorrow morning) to around 300Mb download speeds and 50mb upload speeds – a significant upgrade on our average 20mb down and 5 up that we are presently receiving. Well that and hopefully the complete removal of the dead times when we seemingly receive nothing much at all….

Hoping that we will be reporting good internet speeds and availability in the hours / day to come.

Fingers crossed 🤞

Happy New Year

Wishing all of our readers a super 2020 with health, happiness and fun all the way.

We have taken down the decorations this morning and put them away for another year – feels like a big job when it comes to putting the damned things away sadly – anyway, it is all done for another year.

We have also this morning booked our 20th Wedding anniversary trip which includes a 14 night cruise on board the P&O Britannia, travelling around the Caribbean, starting and ending in Bridgetown, Barbados 🎉

We will be leaving on Friday the 18th December so will be enjoying not only our anniversary away, but also Christmas 🎄AND the new year 🍾🥂

With it being Christmas time, it was super hard to get the right deal and locations, but we managed it so are now super pumped up for the upcoming trip 😃
