I launched a new service for my business last week and as I made a graphic to use in promoting it, my daughter Caitlin suggested that I should be putting it on Instagram. The problem with that is that I didn't have a smart phone and Instagram isn't designed for use from a PC.
Caitlin decided to ask all her siblings for a contribution and they bought me my first ever smart phone, which arrived today.
The photo above is my first ever smart phone photo, poorly lit but still, a photo taken by a phone.
The cake is an orange, blackberry and mascarpone cake that we had for Liam's birthday. He turned 23 yesterday but we did the whole cake thing tonight. It followed a dinner of mashed potato, broccoli and slow cooked pork shoulder. Simple, home cooked food but all delicious and the girls organised all of it. After all of that, it makes a whinge about waiting for the bathroom sound pretty petty :)
I was glad to welcome a new visitor to my blog last week: Country Mum from the blog [Farm-ily]
She takes spectacular photos from her family farm in the NSW Riverina so if you don't know her, it's worth a visit. There is also a brand new photography blog on the block "A Year in the Life", it's creator, Amanda is posting a picture for each day of this year and so far she covers a range of styles and subjects. You might like to pay a visit there, too.
I expect tomorrow will be comparatively boring, it's hard to top a new phone and delicious cake!
