here in the english north-wet we harvest wild strawberry-flavoured marshmallows too:


- for special occasions, of course,

(cos wild strawberries're much smaller than the domesticated ones,
and've been getting progressively rarer these last few decades (alas!))

as they do have a truly exquisite natural flavour to impart.

(and 'twould appear the disappeared scrapbook's also reappeared!)

9/20/16 06:16 pm - yr hmbl srppnt.'s lifetime livejournal would appear to be back!

by maybe 6pm (bst)(gmt+1) to-day,
yr hmbl srppnt.'s disappeared lifetime livejournal,


- seems to've returned,

- as it should never've gorn

(- yrs trly has yet to check upon all the various friends settings,

- friends-of-friends settings,

- mutual friends settings,

- sub-groups-of-friends settings,

- nor even looked for my scrapbook photos;


9/20/16 06:00 pm - yr hmbl srppnt. would appear to've achieved (fairly) broadband!

as of approximately 9am (bst)(gmt+1) yesterday,
yr hmbl srppnt. would appear to have achieved broadband.
not as fast as it should be -

(- yrs trly has to clear a way to the incoming line socket,
wield a screwdriver, fit on a filter- and rj45(?) socket-containing new almost-front plate,
re-fit on the front plate, reconnect tephelone(s), plumb rainbow bdbnd router into the mains,
switch on and wait for (more) (all?) of the green lights to stabilise for that)

- but broadband nevertheless, and fibre broadband at that!

- woo-hoo! (- or words to that effect) !!
