I’m blogging from an ipad! James bought one to use for work – as a kind of pseudo laptop, and being the lovely person he is, has said I can use it! He’s bought the attachable keyboard as well, which is really useful – the ipad slots in, and stands up, so you can type. Amusingly, it also fits my iphone, so I can type using it, which makes responding to emails a lot easier! It looks a bit daft, but oh well :D
I’ve been thinking about getting a ipad for a while now – the way I use my laptop has changed drastically, and I use my iphone so much more then the laptop now. I use my phone to browse the net, use twitter, and email, and the idea of getting my laptop out, waiting for it to boot, and then trying to find a comfy position to use it as it gradually heats up – it loses appeal somewhat. Recently, I’ve only seemed to turn it on to blog, as on the phone it’s bit tricky, but even that would be easier if I use the keyboard. I do need a laptop for the occasions when I work from home – I doubt I could get Citrix running on an ipad! – but the idea of getting an ipad now is definitely more attractive after living with one for a couple of days! The temptation to just get one and stick it on my credit card is overwhelming, but I think the sensible thing to do is to save a bit, and wait for my birthday and ask for money/vouchers towards to getting one then. Maybe by then the new ipad will have been released as well…
Oh god, I’m becoming an Apple fangirl.
This weekend is going to be about DOING ALL THE CLEANING after the landlord announced he’s coming over this week to check the external decoration, and check the ‘condition’ of the flats. Gulp. Logically I know we’ve nothing to worry about – the flat is generally clean, and we’ve not destroyed anything, but I am still panicking about the whole thing – I’ll be happier when it’s over! I think I am now going to have another cup of tea, then throw on some jeans (note – am not blogging nekkid. Currently wearing leggings as I am cleaning and don’t want to mess up my jeans!) and wander up to Wilkos to get some more Cilit bang to make the whole cleaning experience that much easier. God I love Cilit Bang. I know it’s probably killing the environment, but seriously, that stuff is amazing.
If I get time tomorrow, I want to tackle to magazine mountain I have going on. I know they’re meant to be a dying medium, but I adore them. Curling up with a cup of tea and a magazine is a total guilty pleasure for me, and I love them. I have several years worth of food ones that I want to go through, and pull out any recipes I want, before getting rid of the rest – I think I might ask on Freecycle if anyone wants the ones that are pretty much intact, and then recycle the ones that I’ve taken a whole bunch of stuff out of.
This is turning in to a pretty epic blog post.
Last night I met Steph for a drink after work, which was awesome. She lives in Bristol, but was working up in London Bridge, so I wandered down after work, and we spent a very pleasant hour chatting and laughing. I think I’ve mentioned it before, but it’s so nice to meet up with someone every few weeks, and have such an easy friendship :)
Okay, assuming anyone’s read this far, I think I should tape off somewhat, and give you a break. I have a couple of entries I want to write, but I think I’ll sit down this afternoon and write them then set them as timed posts for another day…
