Dont time fly when your havin fun ?

Good Morning again,yet another nice day !You see it can do it, the weather I mean!If I was at work and needed to be waiting around for buses it would be raining and cold.Never mind enjoy it whilst we can .(end of weather forecast)

Maurice is at work to day so ,Im home alone still trying to get some ,structure ,some shape to my days at home,they are so shape less they are in danger of becoming baggy!!

Whilst in Huntingdon yesterday,I saw a new Maeve Binchy in paper back,I almost bought it only to find when I got home Id got the hard back copy,So it wasnt new !another favourite who has a new hard back out ,is Lesley Pearse,but Im desperately trying to resist buying it,untill the paper back version of that arrives in the shops.

I have been writing this journal just over a month now, I cant believe that !Its a cliche,we all keep kicking around ,but where does it go ,the time ?My family and I have been discussing recently ,the changes in technology.When Mick my husband died twenty two years ago,we didnt yet have a video recorder, and look what has happened since then,mobile phones !,where are they going?just thirteen years ago we were all at my sister Jean and her husband Petes twenty fifth wedding aniversary,all except Kate ,my daughter who was in labour,at the Mat unit,we were able to keep in touch ,with Dereks (my son)mobile phone I tell you it was as big as a brick and so was the charger !The amazing thing is weve kept up with all these,changes,yer weve come along way from the abbacuss!!!!which is what my generation started out with.If Mick came back now he wouldnt recognise,any of this! 

Right,Im now off to mangle my washing!!Im not really! what I mean is the washer is on its last spin so Im off to peg out the washing       With love ,have a good un !    Jan xx

You are right about technology.  I never ever thought I would have a computer and actually be able to figure out how to use it.  It seems only a short time since videos came in and now we have DVD.  Everything is getting smaller and smaller.  No point in trying to hang washing out here.  It has been gloomy and overcast all day with not  breath of wind. It would just hang there and would still be as  damp when we brought it in!

Been a beautiful day here today, the sun has been shining despite a rather gloomy start this morning.  Technology has come a long way - makes you wonder how much futher it can go.  Hope you enjoyed your day.

Your so right about technology, as soon as I master one thing, they go and improve it.  I wish they'd invent something to do the ironing though.  Enjoy the day. Rache xx

Lol, I remember my Dad's first car phone - do you remember them? - of years ago, provided by his company.  It was HUGE!!!!!  Now mobile phones are so tiny, I wouldn't dare put it down if I had one - I do have one, but it's not one of the tiny ones - in case I could never find it again!  Technology is fab isn't it ;o)

You are so right about time Jan.  I was chatting with Kerry today about pregnancy and babies.  I told her it would have been nice to have a scan picture of her.  She was really surprised to discover that scans weren`t routine back then.  So much as changed, in fact now I`m starting to feel very old..... lol ! ;-)
