Our service provider is ploppy poo pants. They really are. I tried uploading photos on my proof gallery for clients last night but no, not a single bit-rate was in order. I rang them up at 9pm last night and they said it was scheduled to be working again at 0300 and 57 seconds. I serioulsy thought the guy was taking the piss when he added the 57 seconds on the end. Sure enough I came to log on this morning (0930, i may add. I don't "do" 0300) with almost 400 photos to upload and again it was down. So much for the 57 seconds mate cos your 0300 was just as bull shit as well. Needless to say we are back online. I hate having to rely on the t'internet.
In the mean time - well, what a day belle and I had yesterday. Coffee, an hour-long lounge in Borders- reading and treasure hunting, admiring the fountains, a fashion show in the dining area of the trafford centre, toys and new clothes for ellie. She didn't want the day to end. And when we got home we lazily chilled out with little bursts from her telling me that her day was so lovely. So lovely, in fact, I had to film it from my camera (how cool is that? - im sure most of you can do this..... I urge you to try it. This is more for Mum and Mark but we like to share!) So here she is telling you about her day and some photies to match.
First she just flicks through the book. "Mum, erm, I think I might like to read all of this" (Sat afternoon in Borders is no picnic, but it was her day to do as she pleased) She kicks off her boots for a while, then gets real comfy. I'd love to say she posed for me but she was non-the-wiser with my clicking. She read Sponge Bob and Wallace & Gromit before we bought Cartoon Network. I mean, you gotta buy something after reading two for free!
This little lady amazes me. She struggles so hard at school but in her year 6 start up, she has become a child posessed with a thirst for knowledge and jabbering? Man, the wee minx does not stop. She wears me out. Its like she is making up for the last 5 years of fighting. I swear Marks's nan's passing is like a regression in Ellie .. call me nuts but I think some things are meant to be. And Mark's nan was so wise too. Whatever the explanation both Mark and I just stare at her, with open mouths but full of pride. University she may not attend but what she lacks for in grades, she makes up for in effort.
