Heaves a sigh of relief……

christmas cards

Guess what, all the Motherships cards have been written, yep, every last single cotton picken one of them, that’s about 4 hours of my life I am never going to get back. The Mothership is not happy that I did them when she was not there, but I started them on Tuesday and only got two done, so while she was out visiting a friend on Wednesday night I got stuck in and wrote them all. Even the Fathership agreed that there was going to be a mini  meltdown no matter which method I chose, so advised me to opt for the less stressful one. I’m glad they are done, but there is no doubt I will have missed someone, the cards after all are not mine so how can I be expected to know everyone.

Things for Ho fecking Ho season are slowly taking shape, I think most things have now been bought, but I still need to write my own cards and get everything wrapped. Getting out to buy bits and bobs is proving problematic, so I have made good use of Ebay, and also purchased some things from the Not on the Highstreet site. If money was no object, I could spend sooo much money on that site, but it is, so I went in and out in stealth mode only picking up what I needed.

You might have noticed as well that I am again a little behind in my reading, this time however it is not entirely my fault. My tablet, a 2002 Nexus 7 decided to download the latest update for Android, code name: Lollipop and it has rendered my tablet pretty much unusable. Googling it, I can see that I am not the only person having problems, so here’s hoping there will be a fix soon! So until then, there is no more reading until the weekend. If however you’re a techincal wizard and know a fix, feel free to let me know!

It’s short and sweet tonight I’m afraid, it’s bedtime, and I need all the beauty sleep  can get before my night out with my two of besties tomorrow.

Till next time eejits :)

Fat Fingers!

Unbeknown to McDogs he sort of unwittingly issued me with a challenge yesterday with regards to the Google Nexus and his post about the WordPress App.

There is no doubt the App for Android is far superior to the one for Windows Phone. Don’t judge me, my Nokia Lumia links with ease to my Xbox and I’m a gamer of sorts so get over it! It also has excellent signal strength and as I live in the sticks this is essential.

It is unbelievably easy to post from the Nexus, a sleek interface means that most functions are available. Until now I have used the Bluetooth keyboard I purchased to type posts and blog from the train, however after reading Lee’s post yesterday I was amazed that he found it easy to use the on screen keyboard to type a legible post!

So this morning I have shunned the keyboard and I am using finger power alone, I am failing miserably.

I find it awkward to type. I seem to skip right past some keys meaning broken words, spelling mistakes and frantic use of the back button.

I could certainly type a post this way but it would take me much longer than normal and I doubt you would be able to understand it. It would not be my first choice!

I really must have fat fingers!!
