Morning :) Never mind about an Indian Summer, we had a monsoon (almost) yesterday! lol.
Anyway, today sees the start of a new challenge over at I ♥ Promarkers, where this week we are sponsored by Digi Doodle Shop and our theme is 'distressing'.
I used this cute image from Digi doodle shop, and distressed, inked and hand-stitched the prima papers. The dies are a mix of spellbinders and marianne.
Now talking of distressing and a bit of a whinge.... again on my favourite subject - my crappy internet and Avanti as an ISP!.
Below is the new price plan for my satellite internet:
So basically, I currently pay £23.50 (+vat) for 25gig a month @512kbps.
They now want to charge me £58.75 (+vat) for the same usage, or drop me down to a measly, meagre and very mean 10gig a month for the same price I am paying now :(
WHAT UTTER PANTS!!! :(
This will absolutely cripple me!... I am so razzed off. I cannot justify (or afford) £58.75 a month for the same amount of internet I get now, its such a rip off!..
Anyway, I just wanted to share that, as sometimes I get a little behind with my commenting, and its mainly down to watching my limit :) I will always visit back, but often I can only pop along a couple of times a week, so I hope everyone understands I have to space my usage out a little. Once they throttle me to 12kbps, the internet is virtually broken for me as it just doesnt load pictures!
I intend to fight them on this, as I am absolutely convinced that the Scottish Executive did not award them the contract for rural broadband and envisage it being this extortionate!
.......and breathe! :)
