Where would we be

At a business meeting this morning, there were four of us and at one point we were all on our phones.  Not for calls but for looking up stuff, finding out a date, taking notes.  Starting to wonder if phone calls are actually going out of fashion.

Out and About

Out and About

Today we went on an adventure.  One that didn’t involve computers or gaming consoles.  We went out doors even.

We went to a medieval castle theme park.  And we took our phones and our cameras.  Minimal technology but we had fun.

 

 

This could go horribly, horribly, wrong

Big Mistake

So I may have made a bit of a mistake.  I’m also happy to acknowledge it’s my own fault.

What have I done that’s wrong.

I purchased The Child (age 6) her own digital video camera.  She’s spent the last half hour, since taking it out of the packaging, wandering around videoing stuff and narrating it.

Editing will be interesting.

On a positive note, the latest designs of badges are up and ready for Halloween!

Changes, plans and adventures

Changes, plans and adventures.

Changes, plans and adventures.

Remember when I told you I had a secret.  Well, I can tell you now.

You see, Widow 2 and I have only ever been in the same room together once.  But that’s all changing as of next month.  SHE’S MOVING DOWN TO MY CITY!!!!!!!  Not only will she be within my city, she’ll actually be in the same postcode as me.  Isn’t that lucky?!  So many many  plans for catching up and showing our faces (our real ones, oh dear) and doing other stuff are being made.  So stay tuned.

But for now, I’d love for you to guess what it is we are doing whilst sitting on the couch chatting.

Things I really need

Things I need.

Today whilst trying to video something, I discovered how much I really need a flash new camera.  Mine are ok.  The hd video cam has it’s quirks and today they really annoyed me.  The other camera is fine but a little bit on the slow side.

Where as, the camera I’m dreaming of is a bit wow for both video and photos.  Hmmm.

Any chance Samsung would be willing to gift me a nx-300? Shiny.

Life of B.I.

Life of B.I.

In the last few days, I’ve been thinking about what life was like B.I.  Before. Internet.

A time when you actually had to talk to people, go to places, use a pen, go outside.  That sort of thing. So many, many changes and developments have occurred in the last 20 years and so quickly.  I’m not sure there are people who would know how to function if the interwebs didn’t exist.

 

BTW, need your votes on this months badge.  Russian Doll or Roller Derby Girl?  Vote by commenting.

The last couple of weeks have been challenging.  School holidays are a burden many families have been suffering and thankfully, they’re over.  Well, until the next lot.

This morning I have managed to drink my cup of tea in peace and solitude with the only noise coming from the dogs outside or the washing machine.  No pings, no beeps, no dinky music, no “MUM, THE GAME’S NOT WORKING”, nothing.

Nice.
