MON DIEU!!!!

Hello World!

Bloody hell, I do seem to be having my fare share of problems with the internet at the moment. It took me 3 months to sort out what was wrong in the UK - uh, new router was all it required in the end (bastard thing kept pretending to work but wasn't actually communicating with my computer properly at all) - and now here I am in La Belle France and it's taken me nearly 3 weeks to try and connect here too. It's 1.15am and I've finally made it back into cyberspace on an ever so quaint old-fashioned dial-up (time to cook 3 course meal while it connects)system. I have a storming migraine and was going to have a bath and an early night until I thought I'd have one last try at trying to crack the French internet nut which has been slowly driving me even further insane than I was before.

I am painfully aware that I haven't even finished my tedious sailing tales yet (just one more part to go and then you're all off the hook on that one), and I haven't been able to properly acknowledge the lovely Arte e Pico award that kind Working Mum gave me - or read and comment as I have wanted to for so many weeks. All of this is probably going to have to wait till I am back home on a fast connection (God willing!) or I'll be here farting around in cyberspace for the rest of my holidays.

So, dear Reader, don't hold your breath, but I might be able to pop another post or two out while I'm over here (can you bear the excitement?). However, right now even the thought of cleaning my teeth before I can lay my throbbing head on a soft pillow is more than I can bear, so smelly breath it may have to be tonight...

On that glorious note I shall bid you bon nuit. Dormez bien. I shall.

Happy traveling. How do you get music to play on your blog? MH

Came via Hadriana. Looking forward to reading more. Hope the migraine goes away - have you figured out what triggers them? (I'm sure that's a bloody stupid question, but I had to.)

Hi, Hope your migraine gets better too. Where are you in France? I'm just being nosy. I will go through your back catalogue of posts when I have some time. I still have a friend living in Richmond. She went to Oxford (or "came down" from Oxford I should say!) She didn't read Modern Languages though...(Thanks for popping over to mine and your comments are not useless!)

The internet is the cause of many a migraine in this house, too. Or is it the paint fumes.

Anyway, get some rest and enjoy your hols.

Hope your migraine has gone by now.

Great as the internet is, it can be infuriating at times. Remember that for a long time we managed without it and we should probably leave it at home when we go on holiday.

Get some rest and have a good holiday.

I know, I know ... I hate to be without it too! I can be in the remotest remote place and I still like to check in. But it's true, we DID used to live without it ...
Happy holidays

Thank you for visiting me! I have to tell you that we are about to go to the south of France in search of warmer weather than here in the centre of France, which we hoped would be more noticeably warmer than the south of England, where we spent all summer gazing at grey skies and alternating drizzle and downpours. It's not always worse oop north :) And I'm trusting our internet connection will be at least respectable!
