This post isn't really a Weekly Rundown post. I normally write my Rundown posts on a Saturday or Sunday about something I've been up to during the week which I think is interesting or feel like sharing.
This week, as you're reading this, I'm visiting the Loch Fyne Food Festival, so I've had to write this post on Tuesday. As the week has barely started so it makes writing a Weekly Rundown post kind of tricky.
The big news is that this week sees the end of an era. I may have mentioned once or twice (or three or four times) that my laptop has grown rather old and clunky. I think it's safe to say that she's been going through the laptop equivalent of the menopause. She often has hot flushes, sometimes switches off completely, and often spends a good part of our time together slowly (so S-L-O-W-L-Y) loading things up.
You can practically hear her snapping at me 'I'm doing it! I'M DOING IT!' whenever I ask her to open another programme and she doesn't jump to it immediately. For some reason in my head my laptop sounds like an elderly woman from New York.
Unfortunately for my 'New Laptop' the time has come for her to be replaced with a younger (not so hotter) model.
It's weird how strange this makes me feel. On the one hand, I'm thrilled with my new laptop, especially as it's a complete bargain, and it's a snazzy blue colour. On the other hand, my laptop has been a huge part of my life for the last five and a half years. We started this blog together. It truly is the end of an era.
I feel like I'm embarking on an exciting new stage of my life. One with a super duper 50mm camera lens and a laptop that actually takes less than twenty minutes to get up and go.
And this is what I'm working on at the moment. Black and white portraits! I'm hoping to track down some other people who might let me take their photos and mess with them.
You'll hear more about this and my new laptop in the future, I promise.
