Hi. Did you miss me? I missed you guys. And I tell you what ... I really missed my wi-fi. Last week was half term and we disappeared to Wales to stay in a cottage with a pool table, a hot tub, a jacuzzi and no wi-fi. I would have happily given up the pool table, the hot tub and the jacuzzi and just had the wi-fi instead ;o) You don't realise your dependency on staying in touch with the outside world until it's not there. As it was, I had a couple of opportunities to grab 5 mins here and there in the odd cafe and to catch up with what people were up to. I just needed to reassure myself that I wasn't missing out on anything. I wasn't but I just needed wi-fi to know it.
Anyway, this meant that instead of a half term with the boys being glued to tech for entertainment, they had to do regular stuff like going to a zoo, learn to play pool, going for steam train rides ....

No wi-fi here!
I found the most wonderful interiors shop which was housed in an old chapel which was a visual delight for the eyes and made me want to redecorate my whole house from scratch.
And we let the boys have ice cream despite it being 5 degrees.
which was really our way to soften the blow that there was no wi-fi where we were staying .... at ALL. For a week.
Nooooo! No wifi for a week?!?!?!
Anyway, we are now back in the land of wi-fi and life is as it was originally. I get to wear something other than the below staples - it's hard to pack 7 days winter wear in a case the size of a carry on!
I told you I was a fair-weather fashionista! Boring but warm.
I think I might crack out something a little more colourful tomorrow!
