Thanks ladies ... I'm trying to do a blog but my screen keeps going blue! ... :o(

30 May, 2012

 

Love the colour and the markings on them,Shirley..so pretty :o)..hope you haven't been swearing at your screen,to make it blue ! Lol..

30 May, 2012

 

Lol, Sandra, Sarah popped in on her way to work today and said "Ooh, Mum, the blue screen of death!" ... not what I wanted to hear ... bless her though as she's sorted it for me ... good to have an IT geek in the family! ... :o)

I'm not taking the blamefor your blue screen Shirley, my damaged cable does not come that far down south, Virgin have been to us because they said they have located a very high noise that points to our house, apparently they are receiving hundreds of calls from customers with computer problems, probally around a ten mile radius, they have found we have a split in our cable and its us causing the problem, going to replace it next week and then hundreds of people will be up and running, its not causing us a problem though, my computer is fine and OH laptop is good also,

31 May, 2012

 

Are you sure the high noise is not you shouting at Ralph,or singing ,Yorkshire ? ..you will tell us owt..damaged cable indeed ..ha ha..x

31 May, 2012

 

give up Bloomer, the engineers must have thought me a strange woman, the hole of Mirfield. Ravensthorpe, and Batty ford are effected by my cable, I just stood and rolled about laughing,Ralph was trying to keep a straight face and I am saying I feel really naughty about the cable.all the time I am laughing,

31 May, 2012

 

Oh heck,Yorkshire..trust it to be yours ! Lol..fancy it affecting all around your area ? Stop laughing,it's not funny ..hee hee.:o)

31 May, 2012

 

I know its not funny that's why I keep laughing, our neighbours keep asking if we have computer problems, I just say no,then they go on to say how they are, will all be fixed next week,

31 May, 2012

 

Think you are wise to keep saying no,Yorkshire..you don't want a lynch mob on your doorstep ! Lol.

31 May, 2012

 

alovely colour it is.

31 May, 2012

 

Lol, Bloomer and Yorkshire ... what are you two like? ... very funny reading your comments! ...

Thanks, Carol, hope you're feeling well today? ...

not comments Shirley, facts, my computer really has caused all this problem, now virgin have decided to replace my cable Tuesday and not Wednesday, going to be some happy people about when its done, I just find it so funny,

1 Jun, 2012

 

There will be some very smiley faces around on Tuesday then, Yorkshire! ...

just thought I would update you on Virgin/Cable, well these 2 chaps turned up at half ten yesterday and put some cable down a hole, left all the cable on our lawn, at 3 another chap came and he said he did not have the tube that it has to be threaded through, 24 hours later, no one has been and all the cable on the front lawn,if it stays there much longer some Rumanian will nick it,

6 Jun, 2012

 

Hmm ... strange how he didn't have the tube on a Bank Holiday ... methinks he fancied some time off ... hope it's still there in the morning! ... :o)

6 Jun, 2012

 

cable still on the lawn and he never came back yesterday, I ended up talking to three people at virgin, all of said there was no work registered to be carried out at our property, only when I lost my temper they said a technician would now be here friday afternoon,watch this space,

7 Jun, 2012

 

I bet that technician will be trembling when he arrives at your place tomorrow! ... He'll know you as that lady who lost her temper ... be nice to him, Yorkshire ... :o)

7 Jun, 2012

 

now 3.24 and I am getting more and more in a temper,sick of having to wait in and no one comes,

8 Jun, 2012

 

now 8.15pm,Yorkie..have they been? I heard a lot of swearing coming over on our side of the hill ! :o).
Try not to take it out on the poor workman..he is only the lackey..it's the faceless ones who are to blame..

8 Jun, 2012

 

cable fitted yesterday Bloomer, stayed calm, but now we have no telephone, god knows what they have done to the phone line, can't come out until next week,

9 Jun, 2012

 

If it isn't one thing it's another,Yorkshire..Come on,you
know they can only get one thing right at a time ! ..next week ? ....oh dear...they mustn't work weekends then..:o(

9 Jun, 2012

 

they do work weekends but have no engineer available, and your telling me to keep calm,just as well our friend made the call from her house this morning and not me,

9 Jun, 2012

 

Not much you can do then..yet another waiting game..so frustrating for you....hope it's Monday,at least..

9 Jun, 2012

 

telephone now working, cable men disconnected the phone for some reason,

11 Jun, 2012
