New and Old Garden – House

I promised those pictures for a while. Below’s pictures are from the description for our house prior to buying it. You might see the overgrown garden, garden shed, bushes in the front garden and some trees/bushes on the right hand side of the house. And a piece of fence over a pond, next to a huge bamboo (also in the middle picture far right). Now it is all laid to grass (lawn):

Oh dear, this week was full of swine 🙂 2 if not 3 of my work colleagues went home and 2 came down with the flu. You already know how paranoid I am, so it didn’t help. Still feeling ok, however having a sore throat and itchy ears. The curry on Saturday night surely helped to get any viruses out of my body – I hope so anyway 🙂 Vodafone exchange my Blackberry Bold within 24 hours and the new one runs fine. Either Ubertwitter caused a crash on the system, which I doubt, or the first one was faulty. Not sure. Fingers crossed! The new one is working so well, I absolutely love it. Will write a review at some point. Need to insure that the Bold though, don’t want to pay for one, in case anything happens to this one. I am far from having installed a lot of programmes but just for my emails, Facebook and Twitter, it is great 🙂 I know, I will install more programmes, but currently I think a lot about complexity in life. But I write about that later this week on Thursday! Then, I bought myself an ugly and awful alarm

Sunday Column (22)

What an exciting week. My second full week in my new job and I am getting busy. Slowly but surely I am getting to a routine and getting things done. New leads, new friends and more fun. I am loving it! Really!!! So what have I been doing outside work? Monday was Hansel and Gretel’s first birthday. At night I went to a friend’s place and taught him some basic SEO techniques. Luckily he stopped me after 3 hours as I would have carried on, just scratching the surface of Social Media. Just by explaining others what I know, I notice how much I enjoy the idea of search and performance marketing in general. I always thought I wanted to change topics within the industry at some point and look into a more technology based products but I guess the “search fever” has taken over and I feel very comfortable and happy within this field. And, I am still learning daily! The rest of the week just flew by. I feel tired, exhausted and run down. Because of the swine flu I am paranoid that it might be it but probably it is just tiredness paired with exhaustion. Basically sleeping

garden pictures

It has been a while since I updated you with pictures of the garden. So here we go, I made them much smaller than the originals, hopefully the quality is good enough. We bought a few new plants and flowers to put in the garden, so here are the results. I am sure my wife will take more pictures. I particularly like the hedgehog house and the picture with all the new plants, including the lovely blue flowering one, the roses and the eucalyptus. I hope they all survive and grow into an even more lovely garden. Also notice the veggies, which have come a long way since I first started.
