Here are 3 pics taken of the weather on 3 different days during April so far,
Snow & Hale on 6th

And today on the 26th it's been lovely and sunny and you would be fooled if you thought it was warm because there is a bitter cold north wind blowing.
It's no wonder I am sick. I have laryngitis at the moment and the anti biotics are knocking the good out of me, all I want to do all day is sleep and then when I go to bed at night, I only sleep until around 5ish. Typical. Anyway that's enough about life, back to crafting.
Here are the cards made since last my blog & there are more than I thought there was going to be LOL ..............
Back to life - I have been having a running battle with 3 Ireland for over a month now. First of all it was their signal - it used to be great here in Killenaule but all of a sudden it got so bad that my calls would cut off, my text messages would only go if I pointed the phone to the Vodafone mast across the road. Anyway after many messages to them, it seemed to be fixed.
Then I wanted an early upgrade, well you think I'd been asking for the winning numbers of the Lotto. I had another 4mth + left on my 2yr contract but I was sick of my iPhone and wanted to swap to a Sumsung Galaxy. At one point I was told to reapply at the end of April. as it was physically impossible to put through an upgrade any earlier than 4 months early ??? So I thought OK I will wait. But I got impatient and when the new Samsung Galaxy S7 came out it made me worse so I got back onto them and wanted to know what the upgrade price would be for me when mine came through.
One of their customer service reps basically told me I should count myself lucky that would be willing to upgrade at the beginning of June !!! and that I wanted to leave (despite being with them & O2 before them for over 15yrs) that was my choice but I would have to pay over €170 to get out of my contract !!!
As you can imagine I saw red and I went onto the 3 Ireland Forum and contacted them through a private message. Low & behold a couple of hours later I got a reply apologizing and saying how much they appreciated my loyalty, plus as a gesture of good will they have granted an early upgrade.!!!
Unfortunately the S7 was still too expensive for me so I managed to get an S6 for only €29 on bill pay for €55 pm and using their recycling scheme I was then quoted a €60 refund for my old iPhone 5C - just waiting to see if that comes through, so watch this space.
In the meantime though I am loving my S6.
Today the 26th April 2016 is a memorable day for all us Liverpool supporters and finally there seems to be the start of getting justice for the 96 victims of the tragedy that took place at Hillsborough on the 15th April 1989. After 27 years of the media (mainly The Sun) & the Police force blaming the victims and other fans for the tragedy that unfolded it has been found that all 96 were unlawfully killed, with the Police force and Sheffield Wednesday FC being to blame for a catastrophic series of events. RIP the 96, you will never be forgotten.
I personally will never forget that day of the 15th April 1989 either as I had to find my then boyfriend and tell him that his Mother had died.
