Yup…still here6 January , 2012
I’ve been pretty quiet this last week – sorry and so on – but I’ve been busy trying to master my new toy (Samsung Galaxy S2). And by George! I think I’ve got it now. Not to tempt fate, but I now finally know how to do everything that I want to on it, so now I can figure out new things to want. 😉
A giant big thank you to all the people who helped me out (so far)!
If you’ve ever been within “firing range” of me there’s a good chance that I’ve taken a photo of you with my phone on a previous occasion, so I know you must all be dying to see some new photos taken with the new toy? 😉 It’s okay. Settle down now. I am about to show you. Hehehe…
Of course these are the compressed versions of the pics that I use for uploading.
It’s been quite a steep learning curve for me on this new phone, since I never had a touch screen before, but so far I am LOVING it! If you’re in the market for a new phone and you’re thinking of braving a touch screen smart phone then I would highly recommend this one.
In other news:
I am slowly reaching tolerance point with the wildlife in our cottage. This morning I found another baby scorpion under our bed. It was dead already, so no big whoop, but it was more or less the same size as the other one we found a few weeks ago…which makes me wonder how many more of these little critters are around here somewhere, and where is their mama? Not cool.
I’m getting my mom’s Martha in on Saturday to come clean the place and catch me up on some ironing. I will leave strict instructions that no critter is to be left unharmed while I am gone. And I will be gone…because no one needs to hear me scream like a banshee again when I see something nasty.
Holiday almost over:
Next week Monday we’re back in the saddle again. Nicola’s school opens and I get to go back to the secret salt mines. Seriously, with the terrible-two-tantrums we’ve had already I thought I would be a serious drinker by now with two weeks uninterrupted quality time, but it’s actually been lovely. We’ve had one or two rough days but other than that she’s been an absolute angel.
We even went to go see our very first movie in the cinemas today (which I thought would be a stretch and we’d probably leave after 20 minutes tops). No problemo! We watched the entire Puss in Boots with no incident, other than Nicola narrating fairly loudly along with the movie (hey, it’s a kiddies movie – deal with it). She was particularly impressed with the golden goose, which she reckons is a duck, and which also led to a passionate rendition of, “Eendjies, eedjies, stap in ‘n ry” and hysterical giggling laughter. I think it went quite well actually. 😀
Anyhoo, I will leave you on that high note – and I hope that even if you are not off work enjoying this lovely sunshine that at least you are having a great Friday and are getting psychologically prepared for an awesome weekend ahead.
