It has been a funny old week! Very busy work wise driving over 870 miles, plenty of meetings, extreme crochet and a quick photo shoot, yes me in front of the camera which I'm never 100% comfortable with.
I have wrote about the girls on the blog post many a time, at birthdays and about teen geek being like me, however I don't think ever before we as a family have got on board for one together! If you hadn't guessed from the title, this isn't a family travel post, or a family day out! It is stupid things my eldest daughter Ashleigh has said!
So if you have read many of my tech related posts or follow me on any form of social media you will know that I am a massive Apple fan boy, my phone history has been dominated by the iPhone apart from a brief flirt back to an android phone with the HTC One..... needless to say we didnt get on!
So when I was approached by Three to test out a brand new Samsung S8 Plus I jumped at the chance! Not only had I read about this handset in the run up to the release but have also been a fan of its predecessors the S7 and more importantly the S7 Edge. I have also been intrigued with what Samsung have been doing with the Samsung Gear 360 camera and Gear VR.
Yesterday was a strange day weather wise, one minute brilliant blue sky with some amazing white fluffy clouds, the next moment very over cast and meant that a sudden down pour was imminent!
I decided to pay a visit to another National Trust property (I have membership so might as well make the most of it!), I couldn't tempt the family to come with but luckily my cousin Luke was on hand to come for a walk and seek inspiration from the amazing Belton House.
As a blogger you often get invites to events that are a bit vague as to what the event will be about, but when I received my first ever invite from Google it would have been rude to turn it down.
Lucky enough the event Google were hosting was the launch of some new tech! The event held at the end of March was at a pop up house just over Tower Bridge! For me timing was perfect as the day job already had me in London that day.
The cold weather has gone for now and been replaced by some nice sunshine, well it had yesterday!
With my new job we are given a Fitbit and I am trying as much as possible to get my steps up to the 10,000 a day target! When working from home trust me this is sometimes a challenge and takes planning!
I intend therefore to make the most of my weekends! Yesterday I didnt manage to hit my 10,000 but not far off, but due to a little diversion on the way to pick my dad up for football I managed to grab this lovely picture!
It's an area outside Stevenage called Bennington with a number of public footpaths which I want to explore!
Since moving in October we have been thankful for the access to a shed size storage unit at Safestore. Everything from the old shed is in their including the Christmas decorations. Having packed up the tree etc yesterday it was time to return them to our unit.
Since visiting, something has always appealed to me about the straight lines and symmetry of the corridors has always appealed to me, and yesterday decided to take a picture. This is the result, to save energy the lights in store are on motion sensors so my end of the corridor is light whilst the end is dark!
It's that time of year when the tree needs to go up, we don't subscribe to the convention of putting the tree up 12 days before Christmas! It usually tends to go up on or around the 1st December. I therefore thought it would be fitting to make my first #MYSUNDAYPHOTO of December a festive one. I'm also guessing that a number of fellow bloggers will show a picture of The Christmas Tree itself but I've gone for this shot!
If I don't speak to you before Christmas, have a good one all!!
Last week was the opening of the worlds largest Lego store in Leicester Square, London, if you follow my twitter or instagram you would not have failed to notice that my invite to the opening never materialised (How rude) .... but hey I am not bitter.... ok perhaps just a little but it is because I am a massive LEGO fan!
