At the shops yesterday......

I got a new camera! My old camera has been a pain in the neck. Needy to the extreme. Every time I pick it up it demands new batteries. Three or four photos later, new batteries! So, my Bradley and I went to the shops to look at cameras. I think the last time I did that was almost three years ago. (Doesn't time fly! I'm thinking of renaming this blog, "Doesn't Time Fly!" cause it seems to be my current catch-cry!) Boy, have cameras changed over the last three years! The biggest change I noticed was that most of them were not pretty. Pffffft! What's with that? Pretty just seems to be so important to me. I ended up with a great camera with fantastic features, but pretty? Well, you can't have everything! I am in the middle of making a new bag for it and that will be very pretty!

Continuing on the pretty theme, my Bradley and I were wandering around an electrical store this morning (Looking for an ice cream maker. No ice cream makers, cause it's winter apparently and no-one eats ice cream in winter! Are we just out of step with the world? Cause we eat it non-stop! No matter the weather.) and I pointed out the electric kettle I would buy next time. (Bradley just bought a new electric kettle last weekend cause our old one died. Are you sensing a theme here? Dead electrical/electronic items.) He looked at the "chosen" kettle and said, "What is the difference between that one and the one I bought?" Hmmm...... I wondered how I could casually bring up the pretty thing....... and then he said, "Apart from the fact that this one is prettier than the one I bought they're the same." Oh my goodness! He understands the pretty thing and yet it still isn't a factor!

Bunches of children have been busy building Star Wars lego today whilst watching (wait for it...) Star Wars! Misses 24 & 13 along with Mr 16 & 9. As someone who has never liked sci-fi it is really strange to find that your children love it. Really strange. Hope you are having a great weekend too!

I eat ice-cream in winter too. Completely normal I think! Love the lego playing.

do you think your old camera could hold out for one more pic of the new camera............I have a pretty pink point and shoot..........and it has a cute pink case too....

Anytime is ice-cream time. I hate that battery thing with cameras, I thought I could save money and just buy a new battery, but a new battery is nearly as expensive as a new camera.

I agree with you..pretty should be part of the package...it shouldn't add to the price either!
