This morning mowed FIL's garden and then our front garden (pictured, with Mega Breadvan) then had a shower, all before 9 am.
It is due to be 34C early afternoon, so mowing in 20C was more preferable.
Good news is that the high speed line is working, as is the TV box. So we're all connected up (in time to watch France vs. Germany last night). The difference is astronomical. BBC iPlayer through the VPN no longer bombs occasionally and quality is like watching it in the UK, instead of the blurriness we had before.
The TV box wasn't working as I had the boxes one on top of the other. Which caused them to start overheating. So after switching them off and leaving them to cool down, I separated them more and tried again... Success!
