Monday Links For The Week … Bits & Pieces …

So Perry and I had a rather busy weekend … topped off with a day of work and now we are enjoying the start of the long Eid Al Adha holidays … this morning we got up at 4am to head to the airport and collect one of Perry’s friend’s Paul who is now going to be staying with us for the week …

By the time we got back and had chatted for a while we all needed to get a bit more sleep … so Paul pretty much crashed out straight away while Perry was still trying to adjust the curtains in his room …

20131014-121605.jpgAnyway here are this week’s links and things I’ve been enjoying online lately …

  1. EASY BRAIDED UP DO … I love the simplicity of this tutorial … the result looks complicated but when broken down its actually rather straightforward …
  2. ROASTED SQUASH, CHILE AND MOZZARELLA SALAD … this just sounds so yummy and delicious …
  3. 29 GOVERNMENT #SHUTDOWN TWEETS THAT WILL MAKE YOUR DAY … some of these are quite funny … my favourite was this “97% of NASA is shut down. I think it would sum up humanity nicely if our first response to alien contact was an out-of-office reply”
  4. iKETTLE … The worlds first wifi enabled kettle which you can control using your iPhone from bed … brilliant …
  5. ITS ENOUGH TO MAKE YOU CANCEL YOUR RESERVATION … a list of complaints received by a travel company … some of these are so outrageous it really makes you wonder how some of these people manage in day to day life … one of my favourites was … “We went on holiday to Spain and had a problem with the taxi drivers as they were all Spanish”
  6. “YOUR A STAY AT HOME MUM? WHAT DO YOU DO ALL DAY?” … A brilliant blog article written by a man in defense of stay at home mothers …
  7. WHY NOT HAND OVER A ‘SHELTER’ TO HERMIT CRABS … An artist has made these sculptures/shells to be homes for hermit crabs … its a wonderful idea …

That is it for this week … have a wonderful Eid if you are celebrating …

Till next time …
