Phew. I’m on the one week countdown to time off work – I’m looking forward to it, I’m feeling increasingly frazzled so could do with some down-time. In between a busy time at work and at other work (where I’m really pleased with the progress I’ve made on the website) there’s been a veritable update-fest in the world of Apple geekery – not only new iTunes and iOS releases but also exciting things like the iPhoto app for iPad and iPhone.
It’s early days yet but I quite like it – in fact, I wish they would replace the Photo.app with it completely – because the main bugbear I have is that it doesn’t have any ability to manage your camera roll – just save things on to it afresh once edited. A fairly small complaint really – once I have some time to have a bit more of a fiddle with it I’m looking forward to see what can be done with it.
Not least I’ve enjoyed presenting pictures in Journals – so much I added a link to my iCloud journals up above (having learned more about the splendours of custom menus through my work on the Broadwalk Property Management website!). So far there’s a hastily cobbled together effort based on the pictures from the Rolf Harris escapades from November 2010 (wow, was it really that long ago?!) – I’m sure I’ll come up with some more as time goes on.
Next week is my last at work for a bit – as is customary I’ve been inadvertently stockpiling holiday and have a chunk to take, so basically by birthday in a week’s time right through to April will be away-from-t’office time. A little under a week of that time will be spent down in Dorset which I’m really looking forward to as well.
That’s not to say that there won’t be things to keep me occupied, of course. On my birthday itself I’m off to see Spiritualized with a couple of friends, on St. Patrick’s Day it’s the stag do of another friend and finally the friday after will mark a key work departure and thus a ma-hoo-sive leaving do will be in order there. He’s moving to Australia too so it might be an excuse for a bit more Rolf-related shenanigans if I have my way..!
