No Internet

2nd April 2024

We were without internet all day until 3rd. Becky struggled hard with it, and early that day Nick from Peacock Computers visited to solve the problem.

I saved a few pictures from our forest drive of 2nd.

We enjoyed banks of primroses, dandelions, celandines, daffodils and muscari.

The decorated post box on Pilley Hill now celebrates Easter.

Peaceful ponies wandered around the village verges.

This evening we all dined on Jackie’s lamb cobbler with carrots, cauliflower, broccoli and meaty gravy, with which she, Becky, and Ian, all drank Oxford Landing Sauvignon Blanc 2023; I drank Patrick Chodot Fleuri 2022.


  1. I think I must have sixth sense! My probably pressed Send on my email as you pressed Publish on this post.
    I love the pony images and I’m pleased everything is okay with you all. 🙂

  2. We realize how much we depend on the Internet when we don’t have it. I’m glad you got it back. I love the wildflowers on the bank. The crocheted bunnies made me smile, and the header photo is wonderful!

  3. By now we are so used to the Internet that if it is not accessible we feel like we are missing something. Yet we have grown up without it in a wonderful way

  4. Dinner looks so delicious! It’s tough being without internet, we are so spoiled with this wonderful means of world-wide communications. The ponies are so cute!

  5. I am glad the Internet problem was solved, Derrick. It sounds like you have good reliable help from Peacock Computers.

    Such lovely spring flowers, and I love the postbox Easter decoration. You have some talented crafters in your area.

    Your dinner sounds delicious, as always, Jackie.

  6. Nothing like having the internet disappear to realise just how much we rely on it! Glad things got sorted!

  7. Sweet ponies! Love the bunnies on the post box! They are smile-bringers! 🙂
    So sorry to hear about the internet problems.
    I wondered what was up when you hadn’t posted. So I checked in on your last post. I’m glad you were not ill after being soporific. I was worried you’d gotten ill.
    (((HUGS))) ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️

  8. I always enjoy the seasonal decor of the post box on Pilley Hill. Glad to know you got your internet reconnected and all is well!
