old school

Well, it has been a while since I visited this spot.... so long in fact that I couldn't remember the account password. So, 40 minutes later, here I am. But it was a long process.
There was those silly misformed words that needed to be entered,
there were random numbers sent through to my phone,
more sign-in screens - man, this had better be worth it!
So, this ordeal, along with today's events has brought to life a new blogging topic - old school!

Remember when things were EASY?

When if you didn't want to talk to anyone, you just took the phone off the hook - no machines, no mobiles, no emails, Twitter, FaceBook.

Don't get me wrong, I L.O.V.E. all this stuff. But sometimes we just need to keep in contact with the "old" stuff. You know that horrible term "old school" - I can't stand it, but I want to embrace the idea.
So, throughout January I will be revisiting some of those little things that without intervention, will be lost forever - a bit dramatic, but you get the gist.
For the last two days our house has had 4 kids. No phantom pregnancy, just the nieghbours kids - so I had to think of some activities to pull out when I could sense that the atmosphere was getting a bit 'fractious'.
Today, we made chocolates - with caramel and orange cream fillings too. You know, melt the chocolates, paint the moulds, let them set, fill them, top them. Yesterday we made a slice, and today we placed everything together into gift baskets which they decorated.

Ok, so one of those "new" things I need to work on, is rotating photos before importing - ah, just tilt your head - that's what we used to do!

Oh yes, I've also made invitations for Ross' party. Not necessarily "old school" - I just wanted to show them off!
So, come January 1 we're back to OLD TIME FUN! If you have any suggestions let me know - 31 days!

  1. Oh, hello. Welcome back! It's so nice to see you with time to blog again. And I love the term 'old school'. (Although I know why you dislike it too). The cooking looks like fun. We are hoping to do a bit of that in the new year :-)

    Merry Christmas Kell. Much love to you my dear 'old' friend. xxx
