My parents' internet connection is REALLY slow...

This time I did disappear off to foreign climes - I went home to England for a visit. All internet stuff got put on hold, mainly because my parents have a ridiculously slow connection (it reminded me of my uni days, when loading a page would take 10 minutes or more). Still, I'd have probably not been replying to e-mails, anyway. I was too busy having a great time: seeing family and school friends, sightseeing to keep the American husband happy and enjoying feeling completely at home. Plus I loved seeing all the wildflowers that were along the hedgerows - presumably a result of less spraying? I've never seen so many poppies.I'm back in the States now, though. Jet-lagged and homesick. I'll try to answer e-mails etc. soon, but there's a mountain of laundry to climb and work being done on the house, so bear with me. Meanwhile, hopefully your connection is faster than my parents, as I'm about to bore you with holiday pics:
Take care all.

  4. You would think that UK would get to grips with internet speeds by now wouldn't you ? Alas it is not to be .. I live less than 10 mins walk from a BT exchange and I am only guaranteed a 3mb connection.
    The photos you took are great .. where abouts did you visit?

  7. Console yourself with the thought that you're missing the British rain!! Lovely pictures. I'd come to the UK if I wasn't here already.

  8. Your pictures have made me realise again that this really is a beautiful country - maybe I should raise my eyes from the drizzle and the piles of laundry and notice it a bit more frequently!

  10. LOVELY pictures. I'm from the states, but think that the stork dropped me in the wrong country as I felt very at home when I spent 6 weeks in the UK a couple of years ago. Whereabouts in England do your parents live (I'm not asking town names here, just region. In a couple of years I'm hoping to do a year abroad and am looking for new places in England to visit. Your pictures make me want to visit :)!

  12. Such stunning pics, you must miss it so. I know I do after having lived over there for 6 years. I will definitely go back, such a stark contrast to Oz. Hope your holiday is brilliant! : )

  15. I am a UK lass down a UK country lane and my internet is dead slow, too! About dialup speed - so we are pretty digitally challenged, but I did enjoy your pics, and it seems that you have taken the sun back with you as it is very grey and drear here today.
