Twit Twoo!

Another new scheme at Scrap Schemes has rushed round and this is my page inspired this time around. It was funny how several chose to use this sort of decorative shape somewhere on our pages (does this shape have a name???) I guess great minds think alike!

I've been incredibly busy the last couple of weeks - getting stuck into writing/creating for the next issue of Creativity Life magazine (the current issue is just out BTW - now every other month inside the pages of Creativity Magazine) hence my sporadic blogging recently! I'm trying to fill the gaps with a bit of Twittering though (there is a link to follow me over in the side bar). Twitter is rather addictive and while I don't have the luxury of an iPhone (or the much lusted after Nokia G1 that my brother keeps tauntung me with!) the next best thing is Tweetdeck, a desktop application that manages your feeds a treat! I think my favourite Tweeter at the moment is James Moran who wrote last nights awesome third episode of Torchwood : Children of Earth. I won't post any spoilers here, but suffice to say if you've not seen it you NEED to get you bum over to iPlayer to catch up!

Feeling hot, hot, hot!

I'm relieved to say that after several days of sweltering heat down here is deepest darkest Dorset, there is a bit of a breeze to be felt today. I know it's terribly British to moan about the heat (after moaning about the rain and cold the rest of the year) but that's just the way it goes. I guess if I was able to sit back at home and enjoy Wimbledon, it would all be ok, but as it is I'm in a VERY hot office so it's not so much fun! Although we did have a treat today with a mini company-BBQ for lunch! Yummy!

The girls have of course been feeling the heat too, they've been drifiting about either propped in front of the fan, or wingeing to have their paddling pool filled up!

The pic on the page below was from a couple of weeks ago, but you get the gist! (the page is new though! Yay for me for getting it scanned!)

Of course a bit of sun means I could get out in the garden for a few pictures!

And out in the Forest of course!

I've also got more news on the veg front! Since I last posted I've been enjoying homegrown new potatoes, carrots, turnip, peas, more mange tout, radishes and salad leaves! My cabbages are beginning to get to triffid proportions though, I'm a bit scared to go out and water! My pumpkin is also making a bid for world domination! Soon it wil cover most of the worlds' surface!
