Pink Smarites and Week 4

Yesterday I paid a visit to Woolies knowing of there demise I thought I may be able to pick up a bargain.  I did but my favourite purchase was a tube just filled with pink smarties!!!!!

I am really going to enjoy not sharing these over Christmas with a glass of pink cava and ‘Its a Wonderful Life’ DVD.

Back to 25 things – I have just set up my del.icio.us account and will find it extremely useful as I regularly use 2 computers and a laptop and life will be alot easier with social bookmarking.  As with many of the tasks in this project once I have got my head round the task I find I am incorportating them more into my work – for example Bloglines, I have been adding feeds daily and find it a really useful tool.  I find I use tagging to search for posts and photos when searching for stuff and must therefore remember to tag items.

Just looked at Technorati. and Google Blog Search and had a good play around and I am stunned (bit strong that – surprised) that there are people blogging about pink smarties and secret stashes in their work drawers with sherbet filled straws. 

Back to 25 Things – I have also found that using different searches provides different results I am sure as I try different ways in the long term I will have my preferred searches but at the moment don’t feel I can comment on which I find the best or easiest for me.

Week 3

I have found this week really enjoyable and useful, probably because I set up bloglines on Monday and have used it every day since.  I keep realising that I am checking a site for new content when I can just add it to bloglines and see at a glance if there is anything new all on one page.  I liked the videos for this week, I found them very basic but they managed to get the information over in a way I could understand. 

I tried using all the searchs for newsfeeds and found Syndic8 the most confusing.   the most entertaining debate I have found is the number of articles given over to the lovely John Sargent and his decision to leave Strictly – he will be missed.

Week 2

Hi all

Thought I best note some things down with regards to week 2 of my 25 things.  Loved setting up on Flickr, have been meaning to use it for ages as it is a brilliant way of sharing photos.  I had a good play with all the mashup links we were given.  I say play as I felt that was what I was doing just playing around – its nice to know what is out there.  When I showed my 18 year old son what I had been doing that is what he then spent all evening doing playing around.  Boys and their toys!  Anyway now about to embark on Week 3.

My favourite view

This is my favourite view which I look at every day. It tells me what to wear in a morning and how cold its going to be on a night. It tells me when to fetch my washing in – as the clouds come in from the West you can see them come rolling down the valley and I usually have a good ten minutes before the rain hits. It reminds me each day that there is no place like home.

Isn’t this exciting

Well here goes, I am looking forward to this – I have never done anything like it before so hope to learn loads.  I have already thought of a way I will be able to use blogging – outside of work of course.  So far it all seems straightforward except it took me a while to come up with a name,  but last night on the lego website I treated myself to a keyring and yes it is a pink brick keyring!  I am really looking forward to Christmas morning when Santa has delivered it – only 49 days to go.
