I don't know, this is my first smart phone. Definitely good fun so far.

It's still a shame it's only temporary, but this'll be the easiest week's work i've ever done.

:lol: Soooo many people have made jokes about the baking/firefighting.

Off to see my dad again today! This time he's bringing his wife who I've not met, and their 1 year old guide dog trained retriever :D I know next time I'm gonna have to meet his kid though, which I'd really rather not D:

Great weekend performing at Rock & Bike Festival both morris and belly dancing. Shimmy Armageddon got such an amazing response this year doing our more 'normal' set and even at 1.30 in the morning when out of dance kit people were still recognising and coming up to me saying how much they enjoyed our performance. Had impromtu camping as the atmosphere and weather was so nice and had friends there not seen in ages. Borrowed sleeping space in a friend's tent, another friend's spare sleeping bag, change of clothing of a friend's second hand clothes stall and was fed bacon sarnies in the morning.

Sunday night Will's mum came over and brought me her sewing machine from the loft so I can finish making my patchwork a lot easier than by hand. She's also introduced me to whatsapp on my phone.

Pixie cat has made friends with neighbourhood cat.

Soon Will shall have a bigger car with air conditioning and cup holders and the trailer tent.

Was dead at work yesterday so spent an hour catching up with a friend I've not really seen in 2 years.

The sunshine :D

Quite a list there, but not had time to be on the forum for a week so a lot to catch up on.

Iced Earth playing Brum in October supporting Volbeat. Not the biggest fan of them, but it'll do to be able to catch Iced Earth.

+1 :yes:

WHMMHT; Catching up with my family a bit over the phone and Facebook, and catching up on sleep by having a long nap this afternoon. Also, I'm wearing a maxi dress. THIS IS NEVER POSSIBLE, EVER. But someone finally decided they'd make a maxi for a 4ft10 midget like me. <3

Whoa, the benefit of hosting a website yourself rather than using something like Blogger? Having full control over things like caching...
