It's Time For Plan B

The bad news is our phone line is still not connected.
The worse news is that when it eventually does get connected it will take up to a further two weeks before our Broadband connection is up and running. This means up to three weeks or more of no blogging from home.


No use crying over spilt milk or disconnected Internet, though, so I have devised a cunning plan to combat this problem.

Now that the new house is pretty much unpacked and sorted, I have dusted off the ol’ laptop and will see how it goes if I type up blogs and sort photos at home, save them onto a nifty little USB memory stick I have on my keyring, and attempt to post the stuff from work. Time permitting, of course. We all know I am far too diligent to be doing personal stuff like Blogging when I am supposed to be working. But lunch-hours exist for a reason, right? Well, for a while, this is going to be my reason. So without any further ado, I shall share with you some photos I’ve taken over the last couple of weeks, ‘cos they came out nicely and you know how much I like pretty pictures!

This was a little birdie who was hanging around our house last week. He was just learning to fly and wasn't afraid of us at all. Look at him all fluffy and cuddly and stuff!

These are some of the rose bushes Hubby planted during the week. Pretty eh?

And finally, I was sitting outside in my garden one perfect evening having a smoke and playing with my camera, and these are some of the results:

Cool eh?

And now for a special treat, you get 2 posts in 1 day!

WOW luv the photos!!!
when do you go on your bike trip??
I can't believe it is taking this long to get your internet connection at home. You did not have a hurricane and not tell me did you?? LOL :)

Great pictures, Terri!

And thanks for going above and beyond the call of duty to bring the pictures to us. :)

Terri said...

Spookie - ... and I do love it when a plan comes together.

Kyknoord - Why thank you, kind sir :)

Anne - Ah yes, the fuzzy side of me... must be the hormones.

Beads - No, no hurricane although it came pretty close over the weekend. And the wind is still blowing like mad now, but at least the rain has let up. Where's summer again? Bike trip is in less than a month. Hm, best I haul out the map soon eh?!

Jason - Sharing the nice pic's with you guys is half the fun. What's the point in taking nice photos if nobody ever sees them?!

Hi stranger. I am glad to see that you have settled in nicely. I must admit that I envy your upcoming bike trip. Love the photos!!! Would love to get one of the full moon currently happening!!

angel said...

{sharp intake of breath} TWO POSTS... so soon after my terri-diet really started kicking in!
oh- and i just LOVE baby birds, the whole fluffy-short-tailed-big-mouthed look is so adorable!

Terri said...

Buddess - I'll have to give you guys an update on the bike trip soon. Sounds like a good next post, thx!

Angel - Try not to get too used to the terri-posts... we're not out of the woods yet! I managed to get to work real early this morning which is why I'm getting to post my comment. I might actually get to visit a few other blogs before the sh*t hits the fan here again...
I do missya though!!!
