Aaargh - no internet.

Hi everyone, what a nightmare it's been this week trying to change from one service provider to another. My husband, in his wisdom (lol), decided to change from BT to Talk Talk just for our telephone line, but as we have a contract for our Broadband had to stay with BT until March next year. However, last Friday when I got home from work and settled down at the computer to do some blog hopping, to my horror, no internet.

I then spent (wasted) two hours on to BT trying to sort out the problem and at the end of the conversation, they told me we couldn't have BT Broadband without a BT telephone line and Talk Talk said tthat they couldn't connect us without a MAC key from BT, who said they couldn't tell us the MAC key without an active line - aaargh, going round in vicious circles. Anyway, the conclusion, BT have ended our Broadband contract, but we cannot be connected to Talk Talk broadband until the end of next week. What a nightmare, it's like having your legs chopped off.

So, you are probably wondering, how I have managed to have this little rant. Well, I've pinched my daughter's laptop while she's at work just so I can have a sneeky peek at everyone's blogs to see what's going on. Oh and while I'm at it just upload this quick card I did over the weekend.

The stamp is a Do-Craft, FF stamp, which I've coloured with Whispers pens. Papermania background card, brads and an Anita's peel off. I'm still into stitching onto card, so as you can see, I've stitched around the card as well as though the middle top to bottom and side to side.

Hope to be back up and running by next weekend. Bye all.x
