Our BT Internet reception was so consistently poor that I closed the account a year or so ago and eventually transferred to EE mobile. This is far more expensive, but, by and large, reliable. We regularly need the maximum data allowance. Since Elizabeth joined us in July we have sometimes needed topping up. Suddenly, in the last couple of weeks, the allocation has been ingested through an insatiable, invisible, avaricious, maw. This morning, Nick, a technician from Peacock Computers, came to the house and checked all our devices, including the smart TV and my sister’s two computers. Culprits were identified, and advice given.
Having more confidence in logging on, I added a little more to ‘A Knight’s Tale’, adapting a small section of ‘Questions’.
Later this afternoon, Jackie drove me, via Barton on Sea, to South Sway Lane in time to catch the sunset.
Clifftop visitors at Barton, like this seated, bespectacled, gentleman, created silhouettes against the skyline.
A crow catching the lowering sun at Wootton was more exposed now many of the leaves are falling;
burnished bracken blazed among banks of trees;
Jackie’s handbrake application startled a browsing chestnut pony.
Lucy, a grey with kindly eyes,
chomped, first food from a trug provided by her owner, then from grass, alongside her tubby neighbouring bleating lambs.
These animals were tinged with the red-gold hues of the Sway Tower sunset.
This evening we dined on Hordle Chinese Take Away fare with which Jackie drank Hoegaarden and Elizabeth drank Cahors Malbec 2016, while I abstained.
