Hoppo Bumpo (n): A children's game. Played by folding one's arms and hopping on one leg. Aim is to bump opponents, so that they lose their balance. Last person standing wins.

Had a lovely time this month.

Surfed and surfed and surfed. Googled, YouTubed, Flickr'd and Blogged. But apparently I have been very naughty. Blown out the broadband allowance. So now as punishment our provider has set our link speed back to somewhere between "paint drying" and "snails racing".

So to the kind people who read Hoppo Bumpo and leave comments, I wish I could reciprocate. I really do. I can see my Google Reader filling up with tantalising new posts on all your blogs, but there are only so many hours that one can wait for a page to load.

We hope to resume normal service shortly ...


  1. (:
    It happens... be calm...see you later!

  2. *sigh* I wish they had done that to us this month....instead, they let us get *1.5 GIG* over the limit on the last day. Ouch. And we pay through the nose for the 60 gig plan. Wah. (I MISS the States, where it's UNHEARD of to put limits like that!!! Wahhhhh!!!!)

  3. I hear you!! We're the same.. It's driving me batty!


Thanks for dropping by! I love hearing what people have to say. Leave a comment if you like.
