This week I realised that my digital camera had died. It wouldn't recharge - to be honest it hasn't recharged for some time. When I needed a camera I grabbed the dh's, but I like to have my own camera. One I can put in my pocket, or my handbag. That's always there.
I informed the dh - camera buyer extraordinaire - and he went online to look for something small and slender. He got v. excited about a black one, talking mega-pixels and zooms. I said I wanted a pink one.
I got the look.
"Pink. To match my eReader."
He tried to find the model in pink. They didn't make one. What a mistake...
Meanwhile I went online and asked Google to find me "pink cameras". Google understands a girl. Up it came with this sweet little Canon Ixus with terrific pixels and loads of mega-thingies and a zoom that is a whizz. And I could have had it in any colour I wanted.
It arrived today. This is it. I am in love - and the dh is seriously impressed too. You can be frivolous and still get the goods.
Now I have to name her. And the Sony eReader.
It's competition time. The netbook is Delores, my memory stick is Freddie - I only name the portable stuff - so I have copies of SOS: Convenient Husband Required for the two best suggestions - one for the eBook and one for the camera.
Off you go!
Oh, PS There are pics of the Snap & Scribble on Shedworking including a pic of our mate, the fab Les - Picus Crafts - helping to put it up! (And me bending over Delores!)
