Better Technology?????

It was supposed to be faster and easier on 'proper' broadband but things never go the way they are supposed to. Since moving here our internet connection has been via a 'dongle'. Basically like a mobile phone connection which is frustratingly slow and often disconnects so when we decided to cancel that contract early and go for the 'proper' thing it was going to be so easy, wasn't it? Well, we are getting there and at times everything is super duper but never mind we'll get it sorted.
One thing that is sorted is my new purchase
- I have got a Gator which is easier than my quad bike and trailer to load and manouvere.

We have been very busy trying to get the improvements to the house finished and the access completed while the weather is dry - we haven't had much good weather but it has been mainly dry enabling much needed work to be done. It all seems never ending, we are probably trying to do too much too soon and cannot fit it all in.

Anyway, the Alpacas look fit and well. Toad Hall Storm (Charlie) had to go on the bottle for a couple of days as Gem had a touch of mastitis but all seems well now and Toad Hall Sunsrise (Chan) is growing incredibly fast.
