001. I had a call on Saturday night about my “Windows computer.” I know, as if I’d use Windows, right? Once you’ve had a Mac, there’s no going back! Ha. Anyway. I asked him where he got my details and how he ‘knew’ which computer I had, to which he started to ramble on about, “When you buy a new computer, all the details… blah, blah, blah.” I cut him off, told him he was wrong and he called me a liar (the cheek!), as he could 100% guarantee I was using a Windows operating system. Yuh-huh, ok mate. Long story short, I called him fraudulent scum and hung up. If you get any calls like this, please do the same! It’s a well known scam to get all of your info and do god knows what with it. Microsoft might be rubbish, but they’re not so rubbish that they cold-call people.
002. I couldn’t really not mention the Olympics, could I? I don’t know about the rest of the world, but Britain is gripped by it! Looking on Twitter, I’ve not been getting quite emotional as some, but it’s great to watch it every now & again and see just how great Team GB are doing. We’re currently in third place! Whoah. It’s great to see people like Ennis and Farah do as well as we thought they might, but I love the people who slipped under the radar and have then exceeded our expectations, such as the rowing teams and Gemma Gibbons in the judo. I love a good underdog!
003. I’ve been working on a new shop to sell my photo prints. I’ll let you all know when it’s good to go. Exciting!
The Happy List
homebaked cookies gently tickling B’s ribs with my teeth! planning blog posts in advance pitta & piri-piri houmous shopping my stash of jewellery MyFitnessPal lime coloured nails with gold glitter Cadbury’s Twirls researching colours and textiles for Byron’s room my car being fixed!
Yep, it’s here! Unless you’ve been living the life of a hermit, you’ll know that today sees the beginning of the 2012 Olympics. Will you be watching? I must admit, I’ve been a bit underwhelmed up until now (and I still am a little— I want to be really excited, but I’m just not!), so I’m hoping Danny Boyle will have really pulled it out of the bag with tonight’s opening ceremony.
We missed the torch relay coming through our hometown, so I ventured to the place where I was born, to see the torch pass through (as well as do a little shopping!) I didn’t have the best view, but me and Byron caught a glimpse of the flame, so at least I can tell him that he saw it, when he’s older! I don’t know what I really expected to happen, but it was over in a flash and enjoyable, but also a bit of an anti-climax. (Judging by the response I got to a similar tweet, I think other towns may have done it better!)
Here’s a little snippet of the action!
I actually really enjoyed making that video and already have some plans for some more. Venturing into the world of Youtube is a little scary, but I’m going to do it! Please let me know if you have any video requests.
