Thanks David, glad to know you enjoyed your stay. We have o2 and vodaphone mobiles,the others work well outside or with forehead pressed against the window using 1 leg as an aerial.:-) We have superfast broadband coming in the autumn so hopefully that will help postpone an apocolypse.People soon get used to the unmetalled lane, we whizz up and down in our sports cars all the time. Good to know that you'll be coming back.
