No,i haven’t been buying more plants.! Russell wanted a new camera,which
we had planned between the Family,to get him as a retirement present in August,as a surprise.It never works like that though,as he saw one he liked advertised in the paper at Argos..After much discussion,and a few chosen words,.we checked out different stockists on the Internet,and found a better deal at Jessops.We,or rather,he,chose a Canon,but last years model,as it had a brilliant bundle package with it,for £100 cheaper than this years model at Argos,which had no extras with it.Off to town we went,and bought it .He has been eagerly awaiting it to charge up this afternoon…Kid with a new toy comes to mind….He is now clicking here ,there and everywhere,.So,as I have only just learned how to use the old one,in a basic way,I am going to have to start all over again!!! Don’t hold your breath for pics yet folks,as it could be some time Lol….
OMG,he has found Movie mode now,and is filming me on here,,sad,sad Man.
He has been instructed he is to take me out for a meal tonight,for spoiling our surprise plans,but to be honest,it was too good to miss,..and we are babysitting tomorrow night..poor little Thomas,he will be sick of the sight of
Click and Flash.!!..,so will have to think of something else now,..if he’s lucky…
I wonder if he would like a voucher to spend on me,or the garden…?.Remember Carly Simon’s song"You’re so vain"? Just taken a pic of himself !! lol.
Oh,well ,it has made him happy,and he is smiling a lot,so thats good.He deserves it really,having to put up with me on here most of the time…

OMG LOL Sounds like my hubby.
I remember when he got his camcorder he recorded himself making stupid faces.
Sits there and does it on his phone then sends me the movie.
The other day he sent me one and I forwarded it on to his mum ROFL

Glad your hubby likes his new toy ;O)

29 May, 2010

29 May, 2010

 

Still smiling after reading this Sandra ... he'll be taking pics of anything and everything until the novelty wears off ... could take a while though !

29 May, 2010

 

Pleased he likes his camera, when i got mine Sandra (Sanbaz) came and shown me how to use it, and i was taking photos of anything just to get more practice. and remember what Sandra had showed me what to do....

29 May, 2010

 

My hubby got a new Canon for his 60th nearly 3yrs ago and still experimenting, hope you`re husband enjoy`s his as much..........

29 May, 2010

 

Glad he is not the only one then,and glad it made you all smile,as was the intention. Nice to know he is among good company.We went to a pub for a nice
bar meal,early evening,which was very nice ...until....Sorry,you will have to wait till the next episode,via a Blog,,to read what followed..!!!! Are you all sitting
on the edge of your seats in suspense?......Lol.

30 May, 2010

 

Suspenders!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!.....gosh.....I misread that for a minute Sandra....thought you said suspenders.....lol......must go and get my eyes tested soon....:o)))))))))))))))

30 May, 2010

 

And so you should,Lou....as soon as possible,you kinky lady.......do as I say,and not as I do ??????

30 May, 2010

 

lol :-0))))))))))))))))))

30 May, 2010

 

Good luck to Russell with his new camera. He'll probably get used to it soon and the novelty will wear off.

30 May, 2010

 

I'm sure he will ,Hywel.he has been trying the different features this weekend,so think he feels a bit more confident with it now...Only me to learn now ....could be a while Lol.

31 May, 2010

 

No I think you'll pick it up quite easily :o)

31 May, 2010

 

Don't hold your breath,Hywel,it takes a long time to sink in these days,,I sometimes have to write instructions down,step by step,as I forget what I have been told,or shown,even though I have said "oh,Yes,I see," and more often than not,I haven't.Lol.Then you feel a total idiot,when someone says," I have already shown you what to do" Age is a wonderful thing,sometimes,as they make allowances for us :o)) Sound familiar to anyone? I do hope so!!!

31 May, 2010

 

Yes very familiar. lol
I write it all down aswell. When I had a mobile ( I still have one somewhere , but where I don't know ) I carried my little bit of paper with instructions around with me everywhere lol. I embarrased one of my brother's boys one day by taking it out and reading it on the pavement. He said "You're not reading that in public are you ? " :o))

1 Jun, 2010

 

Oh,Hywel that made me smile,..and so familiar about the mobile,I was the same. I get told off,as I either don't have it with me,or it isn't switched on !!
I get "what's the point of having it switched off,its not using any electric".Old habits die hard ,don't they ? Lol.
By the way,I managed quicker than I thought,to do the pics....wonders never cease..:o)

1 Jun, 2010

 

You surprised yourself then lol
Well I was always told off for not switching my mobile on, - "Nobody can get hold of you" - But my excuse was that the mobile is only meant for me to contact someone in an emergency. Not for people to pester me wherever I went. - LEAVE ME ALONE !!! lol :o)

2 Jun, 2010

 

Exactly,Hywel,I hate them going off all the time..on the bus etc,etc.and don't you just hate it,when you have to watch where you are walking,when they have one glued to their ear,with the head down?..Grrr.Ok,moan over...hope you have had a lovely day in the sunshine.we went to Harrogate today,via Train and bus...lovely day out...:o)))

2 Jun, 2010

 

It's been a warm day here too. I went for a drive with Beryl over the hills. It was rather breezy but warm.
It's nice to hear you had a great day. I haven't been on a train for years.

2 Jun, 2010

 

Do you have concessions where you are ,Hywel,for the trains? We can go anywhere in west yorkshire for £1 return.,but pay normal fare,if we go outside our area.You may be in a more rural area than us.We have excellent transport facilities,so very lucky...

2 Jun, 2010

 

Public transport ie buses , is hopeless here. They've even cut back on the almost non-exisant service we did have. The only trains you can get are to Llanelli and Shrewsbury lol

3 Jun, 2010

 

That is such a shame,Hywel..and seems unfair,when we can all travel for free in England.I know it doesn't apply in Scotland,so is it the same in Wales?...even if you had a bus,that is...

3 Jun, 2010

 

Buses are free if you're over 60 - which I have been for a few weeks now. The thing is they've cut back on them and I can only get one into the nearest town. Then I have to catch another one to the place I want to go. Sometimes you have to wait a long time for the connection and it isn't worth the bother. I do hope to go to Carmarthen on the bus soon though. I'll take the car to the town and then catch the bus - if they are still running that is lol. There's quite a large population around here really so it shouldn't be so bad, but it is :o(

4 Jun, 2010

 

I see what you mean,Hywel,a bit frustrating when you get the free bus pass,and travel in your area is limited.Belated Happy birthday,and welcome to the club !!!.you are now officially a TWIRLY..a term used here,for people who ask the bus driver "am I too early" if its before the allowed time for a bus pass.Lol.Guess you won't be doing that,Hywel.:o))

4 Jun, 2010

 

lol A Twirly :D

4 Jun, 2010

 

Snap. bang, wallop....what a pcture, what a picture, what a photograph.........!! LOL! Is he is more of a' Flash' Gordon, Bloomer? You just watch out for overexposure, and we'll see what developes!! Tee hee hee! Happy snapping my friend! :~))

17 Jun, 2010

 

I will take your comments on board,Flori,...see,I know all the modern sayings of today,!! I have been using it ..under supervision,of course...but I have been deemed to be Compus Mentus with the old one all by myself,so it is now mine,all mine.Lol.Only trouble is,that the viewfinder is so tiny,and my eyesight not good,I just take pot luck,and hope for the best:o)).Great when you can delete though,and do that a lot...!!
naturallly,OH 's camera has a viewfinder like a plasma screen.,well,slight exaggeration,but seems like it,compared to mine..:o))

17 Jun, 2010

 

What do they say about men and size eh, Bloomer?

23 Jun, 2010

 

So they say,Flori,but don't believe everything you hear..!!Of course,a bigger view finder on a camera,is definitely a plus..:o))

23 Jun, 2010

 

And not just on a view finder either, Bloomer.......(I was thinking the LCD screen~ why,what were you thinking about?????)Ha ha ha! :~))

23 Jun, 2010

 

Exactly the same Flori,what else is there?..Lol

23 Jun, 2010

 

To be honest, Bloomer, I am working on being that close to sainthood, I couldn't possibly imagine anything else..........Tee hee hee! :~)) (Now how can I disguise this tail???)

25 Jun, 2010

 

With a great deal of difficulty,Flori.:o))

25 Jun, 2010

 

Tee hee hee! :~))x

29 Jun, 2010
