Communication is back!

We are back on the web thanks to this little (or should I say large) bit of kit! Normal service will be resumed,... as soon as work permits!

Climb a hill...

Yesterday morning Stray and I climbed the hill opposite the house. It meant I could take a nice pic of the village and point out the Badgers new set. Still no broadband,... but having given up on BT, satellite is coming on Tuesday so we will be back soon!

Deep in the Dales...

5 days I have been here, and so far I love it. It is so beautiful. More beautiful than I ever imagined. Just watching the cows and the views takes away any stress I may feel. The house is lovely, and warm, which is a first in 18 months as the shack in Guildford with its zero heating was freezing. Stray has been drilling and banging, putting up poles for clothes and building shelves. Oh and we have boarded out the floor in the loft. I have met a few of the locals who have already taken to calling me Badger. They seem really nice and they also seem to like me so that is good. I have been asking about how I can get involved in the "country way" and will be meeting the guys from the shoot on saturday to see if I can get involved and do some beating.

Frank is very happy and relaxed, he is very keen to get out and explore as am I but we are waiting one more day before he sets off into the dales alone. Below are some pictures along the journey from the village to Settle along a wonderful road which goes from Littondale over to the next dale which is where I am able to gain internet access in a nice tea shop.

We are still waiting on BT to get us broadband, but they have promised us Monday, much to the rest of the villagers amazement. So I shan't hold my breath, but fingers crossed all the same else its back to the drawing board.
