A Kid With A New Toy....

I missed the boat when it comes to smart phones...I've only recently got around to getting myself one after dismissing them for the past 18 months or so...

 I insisted that as I have 2 decent cameras I really didn't need a phone with one on too,
I had no need of a phone that doubled up as an MP3 player as I've had my trusty iPod for years and why on earth would I want the internet on my phone when I have a perfectly good PC for that (even if it did bugger up on me recently).
So god knows how I ended up with one...but I did because my poor old mobile was on its last very weary legs and WOOOOO HOOOOO I am just like a kid with a new toy!

I listen to endless music, check facebook, Tweet, read the news, check in at every single location I go to (including my bed!!) and best of all I've installed loads of photo apps so that I can take pictures and do all sorts of weird and wonderful things with them.

 As you can see...all sorts of cool effects, sparkly, smudgy, dreamy, faded retro and instamatic!
As a friend pointed out recently, We have the technology now to create such amazing images that the 'in' thing to do is make them look old and a bit washed out or faded!

 Anyways I'm off to take advantage of the nice weather by eating al fresco,hope everyone else has a lovely weekend.

Saturday Coffee Morning Craft Stall.

We have a coffee morning with craft and other types of stalls every third saturday of the month in our village and this weekend it was in aid of PACT ....and everyone helped to raise lots of money for them.
There was an auction, a raffle and pledging money for singers to sing requests for them!!
Me and Evie ran our little craft stall and had a great time chatting to everyone and listening very enviously to the amazing singers!

 You'll have to excuse my really,really bad photography but I've just got a new phone and I'm still figuring out the camera....I think in future I'll just take my trusty old snapper along with me!
Hope everyone has had a nice weekend.

Busy Month and Broken Computers!!

I know I've not been around for a while but I've had a poorly PC...don't really know what was wrong with it except that it wouldn't connect to the internet. So I got the broken lead on Evies laptop replaced and thought...'YAY back online' only for the same thing to happen again!
Anyways I'm pretty much sure its working again for all of our computers.
So in the past month...I've been really really busy, I've had a stall at various craft fairs around south and west Yorkshire, so I've had to make all sorts of little things to sell.

 As well as that I've been comissioned to crochet a huuuuuuge granny square blanket and I've been making little chicks and fried egg keyrings for These Lovely People so its been a very busy past few weeks for me.

 Anyway thats all from me for now
Hoping to be back again very soon...barring all PC emergencies!!
