Yep.  I get this one.  I think that this could be really handy for both home and work.  I have subscribed to:

  • A site that provides tips on using Macs – not got a clue so every bit helps!
  • Techie blogs – might be a bit too indepth for me though.
  • Huddersfield Examiner for local stuff
  • Budget Fashionista – for money saving fashion tips
  • 25 Things – of course!
  • Dilbert – to keep me smiling  :o))    See?  It works

… and a few others.

I like the idea, but I’m not sure how much I would use it.  I have subscribed to regular email newsletters in the past and after reading the first few I end up just deleting them.  I have a feeling I would look at these for a few weeks and then just stop looking.  But we will wait and see – you never know I might surprise myself.


Flickr photo album November 20, 2008

OK I get this bit of Flickr.  Uploading photos so that everyone (or whoever you want) can look at them.   You never know I might even use it in ‘real’ life  :o))

I have chosen photos of my beloved Ziggy to go on Flickr.  I have had him for just over a month now so it is still ‘new love’ between us.  I’m sure my husband doesn’t mind the new man in my life.  :o))

Shes in there somewhere - can you see her?

Here is a photo of a shopping expedition a couple of Saturdays ago.  We went to a homewares closing down sale and as I am doing up my living room at the moment I went a bit over the top.  We had THREE (yes three) shopping trolleys full of stuff – curtains, tables, cushions, pictures, pans … to fit in one Mini with 4 large women.  Not an easy feat!  Laugh?  I’ll say we did.  There was a man watching us absolutely gob-smacked – he kept saying “You’ll never fit it all in, you will have to make another trip”.

Well really!  When will men learn that that kind of comment just makes us more determined???  It all fitted in with one trip and nobody catching the bus home.  I don’t know what they were complaining about – I had loads of room in the driver’s seat …

To see more photos of Ziggy, search for me in Flickr under the name of Jubaru.

Not sure about this one just yet.  I understand what it is about but I get the feeling that I don’t really get it – know what I mean???  I just didn’t know what to look for, so after alot of aimless wandering around Flickr, trying to work out what tilt shift photography is (see Bryony’s blog) and looking at all sorts of cool pictures (that frustrate me cos I can never get my photos to look cool) I chose a  photo of a mini cooper.

Nice bit of parking!

Nice bit of parking!

Cos he looks a bit like my Ziggy.  Watch the next post for photos of him.  :o))

See you all again soon x


Woo hoo! We’re off … November 11, 2008

OK.  That was pretty painless (so far!) and didn’t take the full hour so that’s good.  :o)

I have created a blog before but abandoned it pretty much straight away so it will be nice to create one and actually use it for a while.  I’ll probably get more out of it too.

Setting up the email accounts and the blog were pretty straight forward – this malarkey should be OK if it all goes as smoothly as the first week …

Looking forward to next week’s installment.  See you all then!
