I love blogs

I was a bit sceptical when i started this blog in the new year. Wasn't sure why i was starting it/worried it was a waste of time etc etc but can i just say, i love to blog and read blogs! I think it's great that i get to "meet" lots of new friends from all over the world. I find other people's lives fascinating, I think that's why i work in the social work sector!

I have recently discovered Google Reader. It's such a great way to read blogs and saves a lot of time. I'd recommend it to everyone. Im not a google employee or anything, but it's well worth promoting!

I got this through on an email today so thought i'd share it, made me laugh anyway

You know you're living in 2007 when........

1. You accidentally enter your password on the microwave.
2. You haven't played solitaire with real cards in years.
3. You have a list of 15 phone numbers to reach your family of 3.
4. You e-mail the person who works at the desk next to you.
5. Your reason for not staying in touch with friends and family is that they don't have e-mail addresses. (*so true*)
6. You go home after a long day at work you still answer the phone in a business manner.
7. You make phone calls from home, you accidentally dial "9" to get an outside line. (*i do this all the time*)
8. You've sat at the same desk for four years and worked for three different companies.
10. You learn about your redundancy on the 11 o'clock news.
11. Your boss doesn't have the ability to do your job.
12. You pull up in your own driveway and use your mobile phone to see if anyone is home.
13. Every commercial on television has a website at the bottom of the screen.
14. Leaving the house without your mobile phone, which you didn't have the first 20 or 30 (or 60) years of your life, is now a cause for panic and you turn around to go and get it.
15. You get up in the morning and go online before getting your coffee.
16. You start tilting your head sideways to smile.
17. You're reading this and nodding and laughing.
18. Even worse, you know exactly to whom you are going to forward this message.
19. You are too busy to notice there was no #9 on this list.
20. You actually scrolled back up to check that there wasn't a #9 on this list. and now you're laughing at yourself

Hope everyone has a great Valentine's day. We went out for a meal last night as we're busy tonight and tomorrow night.

Before i go, for anyone interested, i still have space left on my pay it forward!

Happy Valentine's Day. Isn't blogging great, especially stitching blogs. I've gotten to see so many wonderful projects since I started reading everyone's blog.
