After Thursday’s night’s surprise snow-fall I decided that I wouldn’t travel to London tomorrow for the Learning Network Group meeting. It was a difficult decision as Antoinette was going to be running the session and I was looking forward to it. However, the recent weather conditions made driving a real challenge – even to the railway station, which is only a few miles away! Ironically, by Friday evening, the snow had started to clear-up!
I’m experimenting with MoonPig – the web-site that allows you to select a card (Birthday, Anniversary etc), customise its content and then either have it sent direct to the recipient or sent back to me for onward posting. I’m using the direct-send option at the moment. I like the idea of being able to tweak the text on the cover and inside – it makes it really personal. The downside of the direct option is that from the recipient’s point-of-view, it all might look a bit impersonal as the sender’s name inside is printed rather than signed by hand. Perhaps they’ll introduce an option where the sender can upload a scan of their name.
Ann undertook the first (of three) assessments at work today, as part of her pitch for a senior-manager position there. It consisted of a case-study relating to the national minimum wage. Fingers crossed!
We bumped into Rosi and David at Sainsburys tonight. We haven’t seen them since the new year celebrations.
I got into blogging quite late in life, not publishing my first post until 2004 – well into my 40s! My lifelong love of technology and communication (in all its forms), together with a fondness for the art of writing seemed to be the perfect combination to contribute a few words to the online community. But I’m no Samuel Pepys! If you’re looking for deep and meaningful comments on a variety of subjects, then you’ve arrived at the wrong site! I only pen for pleasure! On average, my posts appear about twice per month, covering family & friends, cinema visits, eating out, holiday experiences and techy stuff. Oh, and as this is my hobby, there are no sponsored links nor adverts here – it’s all done with love!
I hope you find it enjoyable, interesting and occasionally, even helpful!
