Monday Links For The Week … Some More Random Internet Stuff …

Hello Everyone … its been a busy weekend round these parts … but hopefully things will be abit quieter over the next few days … we had my cousin and her daughter over visiting us for a few days … it was all abit of a last minute decision for them to come … Their arrival also coincided with our 1 year wedding anniversary too …

It wasn’t that bad actually as Perry had work to catch up on over the weekend so having family round wasn’t the worst thing … meant I was occupied with entertaining them and we were all out of the house for much of the day so Perry could get on with his stuff and be free to spend time with us in the evenings …

There was even some sunbathing on the beach too …

photoIn any case I will have a full recap of what we got up to later in the week … for now here are this week’s random things I’ve enjoyed online … this is a collection of webpages, videos, and articles that I’ve liked enough over the last few days to share with you … if you have something to add to the list please do in the comments below …

  1. LICENSED TO KILL? CHILD FERRARI DRIVERS HEADED FOR A ROAD NEAR YOU … This article and the FOLLOW UP one really made me quite angry and really highlights the problem with some of the young drivers attitude to road safety in the UAE … basically a complete disregard for others on the road … at one point she cant believe that when she hit another car from behind (due to speeding) that the police blamed the accident on her … and she has an incredibly blase attitude toward speeding tickets … and the comments below both articles tend to follow along the same lines …
  2. PET SHAMING … some of these are incredibly adorable …
  3. KRISTEN BELL’S SLOTH MELTDOWN … This is actually incredibly funny … well to me anyway … I had no idea that Kristen Bell (an actress) was quite so obsessed with sloths … you will have to watch the video to see what happens next … 
  4. LOST IN TRANSLATION – HILARIOUS AIRPORT SIGN TRANSLATIONS … some of these are quite funny …
  5. 3D SCULPTURES MADE WITH BUTTONS … Love it!
  6. A PHOTOBOOTH THAT LOOKS JUST LIKE INSTAGRAM … this is quite cool!
  7. VANESSA DUALIB … I love the series of pictures this photographer has done making animals out of fruits … and her Eggbert series is equally funny …
  8. RAPE PREVENTION ADVERT … This is an old advert that ran in New Zealand it perfectly shows how we can all play a role in preventing unwanted sexual advances … it tries to show how as a bystander you can intervene in a subtle yet effective way … this is just an example but I think the point it tries to make is very clear … I remember once when I was at a club in London with some friends … I saw a guy trying to it on with a girl who was obviously not interested trying to push him away but was too drunk to be able to really stop him … no one around them had noticed or if they had they just watched it happen … I basically pulled this girl away from the guy and helped her find her friends she was there with … she thanked me later for … I haven’t had to do it since but it does amaze me how no one was willing to step in to help her at the time … 
  9. CAT RING … I’m loving this cute little cat ring by Karen Walker …
  10. ORIGAMI PARROT and SWAN NECKLACE … These are also equally beautiful …
  11. JENNIFER LAWRENCE, JACK NICHOLSON INTERVIEW INTERRUPTION … this is great … Jennifer Lawrence’s down to earth nature really comes through in how star struck she is with this encounter … really funny to watch … 
  12. WHAT ITS REALLY LIKE TO BE A PHOTOGRAPHER … I get the ‘Your Camera Takes Really Nice Pictures’ one all the time … some of the rest have happened to me too … all are annoying …
  13. LIVING ARCHITECTURE … Brilliant this idea … and I would love to stay in The Balancing Barn
  14. DIY HANGING MOBILES TUTORIALS … so many great ideas and links to great tutorials from mobiles for above a baby’s crib to chandeliers …
  15. MANGO CASHEW SUNSHINE BITES … These sound so yummy … and healthy too … always a good thing …
  16. PROBABLY THE MOST BEAUTIFUL STREET IN THE WORLD … Stunning … Love tree lined streets … and this one really is right up there …

OK well that is it for this week … Hope you enjoy the above links …

Till next time …
