…well they shouted at me really! I have been on the look out for a pair of gorgeous speakers for my Mac for quite some time now and purely by chance I came across these little beauties. They are LaCie Firewire speakers designed by industrial designer Neil Poulton.


…because our orange Panton chairs have come out of their Winter hibernation and are back out on the balcony, it is absolutely boiling here! We decided to have breakfast outside and very nice it was too. David had to get “his” iPad in on the action of course. Please excuse our vile railings which are in need of a lick of paint again, unfortunately we can’t change them (the whole side of the Marina has the same and the council won’t allow it!) so we are stuck with them….GGgggrrrrr…….

How do you make a happy and harmonious home? Buy a second iPad of course! It got the better of us on Monday morning when the iPad finally became available to pre-order in the UK. It was also partly due to David wanting one with built in 3G and more storage than the 16gb one we had already bought. So “his” one will be a hand me down to me and I will be able to use it in the kitchen. It will replace the touch screen PC we recently bought which was David’s choice and I have moaned ever since that it was far too large! Happy days…

Well we received our iPad a week ago from Americaland and David and I are in love. It looks absolutely gorgeous, it’s slightly heavier than we thought it would be and it works like a dream. Not that I have had much use of it because it has been welded to David’s hands since it’s unboxing! One fantastic App is Scrabble, the iPad becomes the Scrabble board and your lettered blocks are on your iPhone screen, when you want to place a word on the iPad/Scrabble board you flick them from your iPhone…it’s like magic! They are available to pre-order here in the UK next Monday and the problem is is that we can’t decide whether to buy a second one or not, well it would stop the squabbling…

We are off to London Town tomorrow to see Julie Andrews at the O2!!! David has loved her since he was a child and has never seen her in concert before so we thought why not. We will be indulging in cocktails beforehand so I hope we don’t get too drunk and miss the show because that would be a shame…wouldn’t it!??

Happy weekend all.
