A happy Monday morning wave to all the other Monday people. It's been another week of plenty of 'new' and 'first' things - I like this way of looking at my life and realising that, even without making a conscious effort to do something new, that boundary of new experiences, knowledge and possessions is constantly being stretched. Thanks Sian, for organising such a clever and positive weekly link up.
First on the list is my new phone - my first ever iphone, hence the photo (although mine is white), and so far I am loving it. Linked with that purchase are a couple more firsts in the form of two new to me apps. I am now using Map My Walk, (big thank you to Barbara for the recommendation), which connects with My Fitness Pal (the app I'm using to monitor my daily calorie intake). I've also signed up for Instagram as a_bracelet_of_days if anyone wants to follow me, but there's no rush as I haven't added any photos yet!
Still on the new technology in my life, I now have access to Netflix - my friend's daughter pays for extra logs ins for her family and she is letting me use one of them. I had a quick look at it last night and felt almost overwhelmed by the choice. In the end I settled for the Tom Cruise film, 'Jack Reacher' - not as bad as I thought it would be, but Cruise is definitely not the Jack Reacher of the books!
Changing tack completely, on Saturday I was shown a new to me short cut to Lacock which uses the country lanes instead of the main roads. It's really only a short cut from Julie's home in Melksham but useful to know as a way of avoiding the main roads at busy times.
And finally, I've learnt a new word - I'm usually quite slow at picking up on these things, so you probably all know it already. The word is 'farnarkling', which apparently 'is the group activity whereby everyone sits around discussing the need to "do something" but nothing actually happens'. Isn't it a brilliant word?
Hope you all have a great week.
