Hey Honey I'm Google Home!

Hey Honey I'm Google Home!

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.  

#MYSUNDAYPHOTO - Lovely day for a walk

The cold weather has gone for now and been replaced by some nice sunshine, well it had yesterday!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! 

#MYSUNDAYPHOTO - Oh Baubles

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!! 

A Grown Ups Christmas Lego Wish List

A Grown Ups Christmas Lego Wish List

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! 

Star Wars Identities: The Exhibition

Star Wars Identities: The Exhibition

So a friend passed on an email to me a few weeks back for early access to the new Star Wars Identities exhibition taking place at The o2, (Thanks Debs!).  The offer was with Time Out to get an early preview to the exhibition ahead of its official opening on 16 November.

It is difficult to tell you about the exhibition without ruining it for you but to give you the gist, it follows journey of Luke and Anakin Skywalker, right back from where it began in Tatooine, to their friends, mentors and choices they make during their life.

If you have followed this blog for a while or follow me on social media you will be aware I'm a Spurs fan!  Currently our home ground is being knocked down in prep for the new stadium, as a result we are having to play our Champions League games at the fabulous Wembley Stadium. 

Always losing your headphones?

Always losing your headphones?

Going on holiday is the perfect time to chill out and relax from the daily grind!  When packing to go away there are a few essentials I have to take with me! 

I'm not talking about swimming shorts, suncream etc I'm talking about gadgets and tech! 

I already had my cameras, Mac, iPad and iPhone ready (nope I don't travel light) but to add to the kit and make sure we could all chill out whilst around the pool the lovely people from Wraps earphones sent us each a pair of their unique earphones.

With the wife and the eldest planning a shopping trip, Little Geek and I were looking for something to keep us busy yesterday, after failing to check the weather forecast, or it not being correct (the rain arrived earlier than we thought) we decided to head up the M11 to Wimpole Estate! 

#MYSUNDAYPHOTO - Finding Little Geek

Hello from Gran Canaria, upsetting to say we are on the final few days now of our holiday but it has been brilliant!

Its always nice to get away for your birthday, even nicer when you are somewhere sunny and hot! On Friday we went out on a boat and went swimming in the sea with Little Geek!  After a bit of hesitation she was jumping off the back of the boat and having fun.

Mel managed to grab this photo of the two of us, which will bring back many happy memories in years to come
