As one Chapter finishes...

By NDODS    
Good Morning Campers

Just a very quick upload and update, whilst my Dongle seems to be OK. We have add nothing but trouble since we moved in on Monday. JUlie and Katie's mobile do not have a signal this far out in the sticks. The Dongle is is very hit and miss. The boiler blew up on Monday evening, and Snoops arrived home from the Cattery petrified. We will need a lot of time, as we all will to adjust to this somewhat remote location. We are still surrounded with packing crates and boxes, bit we are slowly working through them. My study is almost finished, so at least I can escape from the carnage...GrinGrinGrin

Speak to you all so, and once again I apologise for not having the opportunity to full appreciate your wonderful work.

Regards Nathan

A very well thought out, captured and titled image, Nathan. Sorry to hear things are not going as smoothly as hoped, but if you choose to live out in the sticks, which must be wonderful, then you will just have to put up with a bad, if not non-existent, signal Wink. I wonder what people did before mobiles/computers ???GrinGrinGrin. Take it easy, at least you have your study to escape to Smile Carol

Very apt image and title Nathan - we do not get a mobile phone signal in our house, we have to go outside and stand on the wall and we had to shovel the carpets up and ditch outside when we moved in (it was fine when we viewed!). It is our little oasis now though! It all takes time to settle inSmile

No apologies are needed Nathan - you have a lot on your plate. Moving house is one of the most stressful events in life - so take it step by step. If it's any consolation, we don't get a mobile signal where we live either! Loved your image - very appropriate and beautifully taken.
24 Oct 2012 11:50AM
Nice image full of meaning to everyone in different ways
Welcome to the wonderful world of country living , lack of mobile signal is great at times but perhaps not given your medical issues

Great use of selective focus Nathan, you will get there my friend but for the life of me I fail to understand that we can talk to people on the moon but cannot get a signal to use our mobiles, we are one of the worst countries for slow Broadband.

Cracking Title Nathan as your image says As one Chapter finishes...another starts, you will get sorted all things have there time but in the end things work out ok, Time is the factor, give it plenty and it will reward you in the end.

Glad to make this one 100 Nathan. A really great image, I like it VERY much.
You can get an Arial thingy to put in the Loft to make the Phones work Nathan, and I'm sure if you have a new Boiler, it will be so much better than the old one, and much less expensive to run, so not ALL bad on that score. Take care, and hopefully you'll be well settled by Christmas.

Hello Nathan, missed this as I was away on a course up at Leconfield. Hope things are improving on the home front.

I like the simplicity of this picture, with the textures, lines, focussing, angle and other stuff I don't yet fully understand but appreciate Wink
