World of blog - Day 2 - still not broken the Internet!

Phew, much to my delight, I awakened this morning after a rather disturbed sleep, to find the Internet still where I left it last night. Safely in my Mozilla browser, just one double-click away. In hind-sight, I now realise, my restless night may be attributed to the sub-zero temps and inadequately covering sleepwear (no long thermals, just short-sleeved top and 3/4 bottoms and a thin jacket I forgot to take off).

Also to my delight, I discovered it is only Saturday and not dreaded Sunday as I had thought...where on earth did I lose a whole day? I'm not sure, It's not like I've been anywhere else on the earth to lose it! maybe it went the way as all those socks...
oh well, at least I got it back :)

Very kindly, a good friend has offered to help me find my feet in this strange world of blogging. Yikes, there is so much to think about, though I do feel it will all iron itself out into one nice flat sheet in my head fairly soon (good, I really don't like ironing!) Big ups to Mr T for helping a clueless Dame!

Petar and me made a strange Japanese dish today, well, he made and ate it, I had the foreman's job. I'm still not entirely sure what it was, but it looked really yummy! Once I find out how,I'll post a link to the Youtube video and then anyone can try it.

Ok, that's me done, I think I posted a cartoon from a site we look at for a laugh - Counterthink - it's a Political Satire and a really good one to boot. take a look and let me know what toy think and tell me if you know of any other good ones.

Au Revoir for now

Rollin' rollin' rollin' here I go!

Hooray! I finally get to blog something! It's only taken me all day to learn how, who, where and ask myself  WHY?

Blogging is a new experience for me. I've never really taken much of an interest in the activity before, and was surprised when I woke up feeling all creative and like I have something to say :)

Do we all have creative juices? Do these juices boil to the surface at some point in each of our lives? Maybe, maybe not, mine were set to simmer, short of three years ago, upon meeting my (gorgeous) boyfriend and taking up photography with him.

My last writing efforts were all those years ago at school...don't laugh any of you who are younger than me, it wasn't THAT long ago!

So, why blog, you ask? Especially when we have Social networking sites like Facebook and Twitter. Well, to answer honestly...I'm not really sure!

Stream of consciousness? Most likely, or just a way of letting others in on things I know and love and want to share with them. In the coming days, weeks and months, i hope to share with you my fave websites, some recipes I love, music I can't do without, news from around the world and most of all, all things RED!

So, with all this in mind, I think this is a relatively good place to end off, before I start rambling too much. Purposely a short first blog, just to get into the swing of things...I've enjoyed it and will now focus my mind to more clearly defined make for better and easier reading :)

Okay, goodnight world.
Wake fresh for news from me in the morning!
