Fab read Kniterella 🆙. I sooooo know that feeling of being cut off from the world, as you’ll have seen from my earlier posts. Glad you’re back online and all sorted 🆙. Awful losing ya WiFi.

Oh how adorable re your cat ❤️.

I’ve just watched new series of Dragons Den, soooooo love that programme! Makes fantastic viewing!

Amy Winehouse? - you might like to see the new thread about music icons I’ve generated. It’ll soon be in the right place of OFF TOPIC, but for now it’s in Ask The Community. Feel free to add your faves Knit 🆙

1 I finished listening to an Audiobook, Three Men in a Boat by
Jerome K Jerome

What a jolly good wheeze I laffed at their antics and their dog Monty was so funny.

2 My Homecare Manager got me 2 wks of groceries. So won't be hungry n did not spend all the budget so I'm glad I'm not skint.

3 My Gmail account is back! I could not get any emails for 3 WEEKS. I finally proved to Google it was me trying t get into my account. Honest the security is tight as blue****** fly.
I had t created a recovery email and new password. At least my stuff is working again. I read through over 120 emails. YouTube n Netflux was off, I felt really cut off, but now I'm happy as Larry.
I wonder who is Larry???

4 Judy my little girl (cat) plonked herself on my beading tray n had a snooze while I gave her belly rub. I could not make the jewellery while Judy was on my beading tray. She is probably in the wardrobe on the shelf fast ssleep. She makes me soooo happy when she pops on my legs, she stays quite a long time.
Sometimes Judy lays on my soft woolly knitting WIP's she luves a good head rub or tickling her ears.

Great! Here she is on my legs again. Bliss!

I had no idea Vitoria Wood had gone over the veil. It happens to the best people. I was really cut up at
Amy Winehouse going, what a FAB voice. So talented. Gone to join the 27 Club.

My follow up phone call from BT just now.........

Offered me six notes, to reimburse me for the six days loss of landline and WiFi

i seriously said “are you for real?!”

He went to his boss, who offered me the six notes plus £20 compensation.

i said “I’d like to cancel then as that’s laughable!”

He said “Hold on, “ and went back to boss :rolleyes:

She offered the six notes plus £40 compensation.

I said “Make it 50 plus the 6 and I’ll stay!”

He kept saying no :mad:

So I said “Put your boss on, Garth, please!”

He said “Hold on, no need, she’s nodding to 50 plus 6 if you stay with BT!”

I said “deal!”

Talk about hard work jeeeeez, but got result in end 🆙

Still waiting for the spotlight to appear, maybe wattbot has lost it. Worse still the selfie may of caused an overload of wattbot systems.


That is very uncanny. I was just sorted this out yesterday evening. Will post later today. Fame beckons @Jon1 😉

Jon is fine. Be surprised how often i call or mail people claiming to be my alter ego. Still waiting for the spotlight to appear, maybe wattbot has lost it. Worse still the selfie may of caused an overload of wattbot systems.
