Blog Love - May

The past week has been summer fun in the sun, today we're back to much cooler and cloudier times. Although I know I'm going to sound like an oldie but the garden does need a good rain downpour as the gardens and bees are suffering. Yes bees need water! The sun has also made some of my plants shoot up, especially my rhubarb and my strawberry plants have very dark green leaves.

Music Monday: Silversun Pickups - Lazy Eye

Pressing shuffle on my iPod brings many a random song to my ears. Last week this track popped up quite unexpected, not sure I've heard it in years and it's now been placed into my "favourites" playlist where it will rightfully remain. Lazy Eye features on Rock Band 2 which is where I first came across the band.

It's quite a common thing to realise in the video "Oh the lead singer is a guy"... oops.

I need to give their new album Neck of the Woods a listen.

Happy Monday everybody!

Instagram widget for your blog

I have had an instagram account for sometime now but recently I have started using it more. There are so many picture type apps in the app store now which add even more filters and effects that it's becoming a bit of "the thing to do" at the moment. I tend to take photos of food mainly and the odd gardening picture too. You might have noticed that recently they have started appearing in the sidebar of my blog too. If not, go look!

Music Monday: Bee Gees - More than a woman

Just as I was logging off from the interweb last night, news was just filtering through that Robin Gibb had passed away. I won't be the first or last person to do some sort of tribute for Robin Gibb in the coming days but whether you realise it or not you do know at least one the Bee Gees songs. You have probably even danced to one of their songs too, yes you have!

11 things I learnt last night

A night in with friends soon turned into a night in and then out with friends. It wasn't supposed to get as messy as it eventually did and my hangover today has been monumental. I'm pretty sure it'll last a few days too, oh the drama!

So anyway here's the 11 things I learnt last night;

Finally free of Farmville

I have been playing Farmville for well over two years now and finally I can write about it in the past tense as I no longer play it! Yes. I know finally I have stopped playing. The only stupid thing is it was actually farmville that stopped me from playing the game, the app broke. It didn't just break. It was broken for weeks so guess what I deleted it and my account.

mypure Review: Munio Candela Soy Wax Candle

I do have a slight candle addiction so when I saw these candles in a paint tin on the mypure website to review I just had to! Such a great idea and they look pretty cool. I chose the inspiration tin, after all we all need a bit of inspiration don't we?
