losing my connection...

Ooops! I appear to have been awol for about ten days without meaning to be. Firstly I went to see relatives for a few days, only to get back and find I had somehow lost my broadband connection - grrrrrr!

It was actually quite strange being offline as there were so many things I thought about doing and then thought - nope can't do that without being online. A little frustrating perhaps but almost like a mini detox in a way, as I actually managed to get some things done in the real world!

So there was nothing else for it but to head outdoors at the weekend and so off we went to the coast, even though the weather was pretty grey and miserable. When we got there we found these kite surfers just playing in the windy weather and enjoying the waves...

So much nicer than being stuck in front of a computer...

I have been of line for about the same time. Life has just gotten busy and I had to stop blogging one night I chose not to turn the pc on and I watched telly instead. I haven't watched t all year and it was quit enjoyable.

I am glad you got out and made the most of your time away.

If I lived near where you do I would definitely spend less time online. Great pictures! I can almost feel the breeze.
