Techno Geek...

I am an odd mix of old fashioned geekiness,and modern geekiness, I love reading(it was my first love) and came into computers quite late in life...I have however quite happily embraced the modern world.I have 3 Ipods, one very old one that sits on my craft desk,one that I walk/run with,and one that I use when trying to block out the child whinge factor..
I also have an Iphone,and yes I luurrvve it!!! About a year or so ago,Kristina Werner, blogged about a gadget called a "Kindle" from Amazon.....

Well ladies and Gents hopefully by this time next week I will have one in my very hot little hands!!!!OMG!!! OMG!!! OMG!!!!

In case you don't know what it is...it's an electronic book,about the size of a paperback,that you can download books to via the 3G network...amywhere, any time.It stores 1500 books,you can also download Newspapers and Magazines...And until this monday ot was not available internationally,due to the different networks and copyright laws....But finally (seeing as Australia is sometimes treated like the arse end of the world)lol! it is now winging its way via UPS to my hot little hands...Yes I suppose it is pricey at about $300 AU,but for someone who devours books rather than reads them,and never has time to go book shopping,it will be a godsend!!! And DH has bought it for me as an Early Christmas present, (even tho he already bought us Fleetwood Mac tickets for X-mas)...only because he knows I'm more inclined to let him watch more footy if I have something to read...

So I will start stalking the UPS Man on Monday...And hopefully it lives up to my expectations!!!

Sully is much better,I think he even missed school a bit,but didn't realise until he got back!!I've not done any scrapping,Sob :( but I have altered some mint tins,why do they make them so ugly? No woman wants a bright metallic blue tin in her handbag! or is that just me??? LOL!
Will post some pics when I'm finished.

Cheers B

My big boy is still sick,he got up for school today,but fell in a heap before even getting dressed...put him back to bed and he's just woken up now....

Sullivan tends to just go,and go,and go,everyone told me that starting school makes them tired....they lied! He still goes and goes...LOL!
So I know he's not well when he sleeps during the day.He's also very bubbly,(like me)and even when he's sick he still has a smile on his face,bless 'im!

So day two of being stuck at home on nice sunny days,Linky is with me,he's just filling in time by eating,its what he does...

I've been blogging,found some really great Vintage clip art sites...Almost makes me want to scrap...

Have a sick poppet at home today and my little fella was sick last week.Always something preventing me getting stuff done...LOL!

Some pics of the now completed Laundry...Not very exciting,but heeeaaapppsss better!! not alot to work with and like all old houses many compromises...
Alas there are no cards or Scrapbook Pages to show,there has been no activity there for weeks,months even..Stalled,totally...So yes I have walked away,hopefully just for now..There was just no joy in anything I was creating....Bit Sad ...what am I if not a Dedicated Scrapbooker???? Who will document every minute detail of my family's day to day drivel??? lol!

Cheers B
