Welcome to Favourite Things Friday. Yes- I'm back. Yes-I'm in one piece. Yes-I'm exhausted.
I know you're all expecting a fun filled post about my holiday with Little Miss Sunshine as my favourite thing this week so I'm going to fly in the face of convention and expectation and give you something different. My time with Little Miss Sunshine deserves it's own special post so until my brain cells regenerate sufficiently for me to write a coherent post you're going to have to wait. I'm still in holiday mode or at least trying to be. Little P hit my house like a whirlwind on Wednesday a mere 12 hours after I arrived home and it's been utter chaos ever since.
I have been blathering on for at least 6 months about wanting a new laptop/notebook/I pad/tablet. Do you like how decisive I am? I loved the idea of being able to wander round the house and access the internet in the toilet, the bedroom, and sitting on my backside on the lounge. The idea of not having to run backwards and forwards to the computer room to see what the next step in a recipe was seemed like an added bonus too. I reckon I waste about three hours a week doing that. My current laptop is about 5 years old, weighs approximately 60 pounds and is clunky and huge. I bought it from Noah who had it on the Ark and sold it to me cheap. As so, for my birthday this year Mr. P gave me perfume and a voucher to go buy myself a laptop/I pad/tablet/notebook.
I've been debating what mode of portable technology would suit me best. What would reflect my personality ? What would make it look like I know what the hell I'm doing? What are all the young hip things using? What can I use without going back to university to get a degree in computer geekness? Sara and I exchanged several emails about the relative merits of each during which she tried to help me by explaining technology but it just made my head hurt a LOT like when I have to do maths, or think serious grown up thoughts.
I finally bit the bullet after having a play with one of these while I was away and bought this on Wednesday.
Best .Thing. Ever.
Is it wrong to want to marry my Ipad? I'm sleeping with it and Mr. P is starting to get suspicious. Anyone want to Face Time? (See! I even know the lingo!)
If you'd like to tell me all about your favourite piece of technology or any other thing that floated your boat this week, write your own post and link it up so uber cool people can pop on over to your place for a squizz.
