A New Toy
I had to pop down to the shops thismorning after an unfortunate incident involving my mobile phone and the concrete driveway lastnight, which left me communication-device-less. I had to send my sister an SOS (I was actually just texting her weird things like phon stu* and gt onlin*) to try to get her to log onto Facebook chat lastnight to organise a shopping trip. It's amazing how much I rely on my mobile, and when the green call button wasn't working, and the numbers 1 and 2 which means I also lost letters abcdef for texting, and the down arrow to move between fuctions, I was absolutely LOST.
I've been wanting to buy myself a tripod for the longest time, but it's just one of those things that I never got around to doing (especially considering the fact that I'm never anywhere near a camera shop). Today was the perfect opportunity.
I'm hoping that this means that I'll no longer have to take twenty photos to get one in focus! No more wobbles, I can just use the self timer and voila.... perfect photo.
It also came with this mega-ugly black plasticky carry-bag. As soon as I finish the custom camera bag I'm currently working on, this will definitely be next on the list.
Oh, and I found myself a new phone too.... and some cd's, and some leggings.....
