What makes today's happening even more miraculous is that you really wouldn't expect to require a miracle for it to happen. I know you might find it hard to believe, but today we managed, after an 81 day war with British telecommunication companies to have the internet connected at home in one of the largest cities in the world. I suspect some day soon, there is a post coming about how seriously unbelievable the problems have been, but I'll leave that for another time1.
As a result of this 81 day internet hiatus, I'm massively over stocked with holiday type pictures that haven't yet made it to Flickr. The latest photo I uploaded to Flickr was taken way back in March. Since March we've been to Germany (Berlin, Dusseldorf, Koblenz and Hannover), France (Paris), Ireland (Dublin, Kilkenny, Waterford, Cork, Kilarney, Ring of Kerry and Limerick), Wales (Hay-on-Wye, Abergavenny, Worcester, Cardif and the Brecon Beacons National Park), Stratford-upon-Avon, Yorkshire (Southwell, York, Whitby, Scarborough) and Denmark (Aarhus). Not to mention all the little things that have been going on around London.
So today I've uploaded the first two of a barrage. I plan to upload a couple of new photos each day until I've cleared my backlog. So check back at my Flickr page regularly for a while if you're interested (I should have my Flickr account back integrated here soon too with a bit of luck).
