A timely reminder

I am finally getting around to working with the photos I took on our holiday last year. Yes I know it was a year ago next month that we left and I still don't have the photos edited and uploaded, let alone scrapped or in an album, bad, bad bad...

The reason... well one of them. Just too many darn photos. I have about 70 photos of Uluru at sunset alone. Seriously after scrolling past two or three I am over it, my photos are not bad, but they are not spectacular either, I certainly wouldn't get paid for them, so I just need to get busy with the delete key.

Here is a post from the Digital Photography School website talking about just that - deleting ruthlessly. I think its time I searched out the delete key on my keyboard too and did something useful with my photos ;)

Smells like Jamie Oliver

I am quite the Jamie Oliver fan, I am the proud owner of a number of his cookbooks, and can also claim to have watched quite a bit of Jamie TV.

My latest thing is Jamies 30 Minute Meals, the idea being that you can get a great meal on the table in 30 minutes, and forgo the takeaway or frozen pizza.

So when my husband walks in the door and says "hmmm smells like Jamie Oliver in here" I guess now you understand what he means.

Mad about Harry

I know everyone in the known universe is probably talking about Harry right now, but I had to chime in. Saw the final Harry Potter movie today. It felt like the end of an era for me. I was feeling almost deflated by the end of the movie.

I loved it.

I have loved every minute of Harry and his friends over the past decade, and am so grateful that JK Rowling had the inspiration to tell his story.

Give me a month or two and I think I will pick the books up and read from the start again.
