Musings - Book by cover...

They say that you should never judge a book by its cover. They. The ones in the know.

But I cant help it. I am enticed by intriguing art work. Drawn in by a bulging spine. Enraptured by a rear page of less than 100 words. You get the picture...

My latest book purchase is 'The Paradise Trap' by Catherine Jinks. A book about a cavaran with a basement of paradise with only one catch... can you ever leave? 

It only cost me £1 so I know it will be brilliant. And if it isn't, well... I own a book with a rather fetching hot air balloon on its front. :) xx

Musings - Sleeping habits...

I can fall asleep so easily on the sofa that I often don't make it past the opening credits of what ever is unfolding in the television screen.

But get me in bed (steady on!) and I am instantly wide awake. It's ridiculous,  a curse is what it is. I can lay there for hours just listening to the sounds of the house.

Such as the rain on the window, the faulty toilet valve making its sucking-water-in-at-high-pressure sound, the dog dreaming in high pitches... and then you have Snotty and the Warthog competing in my ear.

Sure they look cute now but at 2:06am they are merely the devil and his snorting offspring. So my plan for tonight is to fall asleep on the mulled wine coloured leather and stay there. Too right!

Stiff neck in the morning be damned! :) xx

Snippet - New phone. ..

What are the things you consider when choosing a new phone?

Actually let me take you a step back...

This week I was able to upgrade my mobile phone. I am the worst at making decisions about technology but one thing I did know was that I didn't want the new iphone 5. I can't really tell you why but I just suddenly realised I was bored of my current 4 version and wanted a change.

But to what?

I started to consider what I used my mobile phone for and came up with a top four:
Researching on the Internet,
Listening to music,
Taking photographs,
Liaising amongst the world of social media.

In fact using my phone as an actual calling device was at the bottom of the list, I only ever dial in my car at which point I use the parrot facility.

So I had a look around and, with a little friendly guidance, I was pointed in the direction of Samsung. Which was when I clapped eyes on the Galaxy Note 2 and I fell in love.

It had the freedom from apple with regards to music, one of the top mobile cameras on the market, a google interface perfect for the Internet and a screen so large and enticing that blogging is a dream.

So I bought one. I am using it now.


Ps. The photo is an example if the great camera and of course my lovely daughter.  X
