Hi Bev, who are you with? Was offline for over 4 hours last night and about the same on Saturday. Not used to having problems.
FG, I don't mind being like BL's lovely plant.
Tina have you turned bright pink too?
BT are hopeless.....in every way.
Clearing up here-must have waved my and hard enough. Friend going on hols this week and it's always good when she's away.
Told her not to come back till october.....
Tina, I'm sure you are as pretty as my plant. It hasn't flowered yet, looking forward to seeing if it's like the internet one.
Just got in ,resemble drowned rat,had to collect car from garage,their car park was under water,forced to paddle.Drains along road full and overflowing,think we must have had a cloudburst.
Well, I think the colour of the plant would go with the name. Did used to wear it a rather bright red, but have calmed down in my old age.
That is a lovely plant though BL. I have put it on my list to see if they have one at the GC, as and when I get there. Have to wait for Winter to finish first.
What I found really annoying last night FG was that the helpline was a call centre!! Nuff said. Just went round and round in circles as they asked the same questions over and over again which were all in the 'troubleshooting' booklet that came with the modem. In the end, I refused to go through it all again. Chap last night told me they had only been on a crash course and all they could do was follow the book. ( 'Doh' smilley). Said he would get an engineer to call me today. Got a call this morning, guess who from.
Have made a complaint to BT.
Look on the bright side GillyL. You won't have to wash your feet tonight.
Never thought of that Tina T just goes to show theres always a silver lining.
BT's 'customer service'...isn't.
And good luck with your complaint...you'll never hear from them. They are unbelievable. We had dreadful trouble with them when my Dad died as they kept 'not cutting off' the phone no matter how often we told them. They eventually threatened us with court and I told them they could whistle for it. Guess what-they owed us money. Barely even said sorry to us. What made it even worse was that my Dad died while talking on the phone to my sister.
I won't repeat here what I think of them..but I expect you can guess.
Sun is shining and I need to make dinner. Hope the birds are enjoying all the food I spilt on the gravel earlier...
Fairygirl, I was so sorry to read your story about your father and BT. I love taking on big corporations who behave badly; a friend who I share a bottle with every week always asks me who I'm after at the moment. I used to get so angry, but now I treat it (for my health's sake) as a chess game.
Bt have changed there delivery system yesterday for BT Vision (a television thingy that enables you to record and see iplayer stuff on your TV not the computer) so I lost all my recordings, which I expected, but my TV would not go on. Spent an hour on the phone to Mumbai last night (free) and the instruction booklet for the new system arrived TODAY in the post; how could they get it that wrong?
My current 'bete noire' is Scottish Power who are unable to get my address right. I have pointed out to them that writing down an address correctly is far easier than delivering electricity to thousands of homes, and asked them; should I be worried?
Morning all it's a bit of a chilly 4C out there but looks like a day with potential. The under gardener wasn't impressed with this early start to the day and refused to move from her basket. is my
Today is my new nieces 21st birthday and here she is
21 days old today
Have a great day
Morning all it's cool here but sun trying to get out here's hoping just checked and all is fine around the garden & greenhouses. Now it's off to work and if it stays dry will help the kids in the school garden today as they have 5 planters to weed and fill with plants & veg have good day all. Blackest great photo best age don't talk back to yet at that age best of luck to your niece and happy birthday.
Good morning all Wet and chilly here but some blue sky to the west so fingers are crossed.
She is gorgeous Blackest
Morning all - we survived last night's wind - but frost forecast tonight . Will have to do the fleece thing in the GH, as all my plants have grown too big to have the propagator covers put on.
Work again today, but 48 teeny lavender plants arrived yesterday, so will have to do something with them when I get home this evening.
What a cutie, Blackest -Happy Birthday to her
morning all,its not raining!
Lovely picture Blackest ,brightens up the day.
Blackest, lovely baby
Blustery but curiously warm in the Fens, just dashed out in dressing gown to turn off paraffin heater in G/H. Have re-planted dwarf French and runner beans in the hope that something might germinate, but am keeping them on kitchen window sill so I can give them encouraging talks.
Artjak, like the sound of encouraging talks to encourage growth of beans,do you think they would appreciate music?
Morning folks....sunny n blue sky at moment. Try to get rest of my lilies in pots planted sometime today.
Hiya Fairygirl. That was a sad story about your dad. Last thing you needed was treatment like that from BT. Have good day today.
Hope everyone survived that storm last night
She is so tiny right now, practically doll sized, hands are so small she can barely grab my little finger.
Lovely cheery picture Blackest on such a miserable day.
Artjak & Gilly, my runners ( 2nd attempt) are in the conservatory and if they don't show soon I'm going to swear at them. Or worse I'll sing to them.
Morning all. No gardening for me today weather poor to say the least but can't moan too much as some of you have had far worse. Are we sure it's not Wimbledon fortnight? Usually throws it down here when it's on.
Whatever you do hope it goes well.
Morning all. Lovely pic blackest- yes too young to give you any cheek!
Dry here just now- more rain to come later..
Art- Is that why my tomatoes are so big??? Trouble is I don't know what it is they like then...they've had everything from Mozart to Regina Spektor to musicals!
Maybe the ones that were slow heard me on the phone to council then...
It seems most people have beans in the conservatory at the moment,KEF have decided to let mine listen to the radio.if no sign of growth by Sunday am going to let them listen to the Archers Omnibus edition.
