How are you? I’m good but I found going back to work after the Christmas and New Year break quite a struggle. It’s not that my job is difficult or stressful, in fact it’s the opposite, but all week I was coming home exhausted and really lethargic. After two weeks of being creative a lot of the time it was difficult to get back into the flow of the mundane. I’m sure it will get better in time.
When I woke up yesterday morning we had no internet, at first I wasn’t too bothered because my ISP is usually very good at fixing problems. In any case I had a meeting to chair in the morning so I went out fully expecting everything to be OK when I got home, which was not until late afternoon.
There was still no internet and T told me it had gone off before he went to bed the night before. Of course the problem with having no internet is that you can’t go online to find out what the problem is. Eventually I managed to find a telephone number so I could ask what the problem was. Apparently the fibre optic cable had been damaged and they were trying to find the break and replace the cable. Unfortunately the break was in a part of the cable running alongside a railway line. Access to the railway was restricted and this was delaying the repair.
When I got up this morning there was still no internet! So I made a few prayer flags instead. Actually that was good because that task was one of the unfinished items on my To Do list and had to be completed by tomorrow.
Finally early evening I got connected again, so here I am!
I’d like to apologise to all the people who have left comments on my blog and not received a response from me. I am really sorry, I have been intending to reply, but have been really out of sorts this week. Please know that I love you and appreciate your support and I hope I don’t appear rude.
The page above is the cover of one of the little books I made for friends and family for Christmas and here are the inside pages.
As far as I can remember all the images came from the Graphics Fairy website. The book is a recycled child’s board book measuring about 3″ by 3″. I made 12 books (I think) in total, all different.
Have a good week everyone and I’m going to try and get my head back into ‘normal’ mode.
I’m off for a cuppa now, see you soon
