Have you discovered Instagram yet? I have to admit to being rather late to that particular party, only becoming an active participant 6 months ago. If you're a nosy 'so and so' (like me) or on a tight time schedule (also like me) then it will definitely appeal - a kind of modern-day slideshow without the need to feign interest at the boring ones.
One of the latest crazes on Instagram, is to tag someone with the hashtag #widrn: What I'm Doing Right Now. And yes, it did take me about 3 months and a flirtation with google to work that one out! The idea is to take an immediate snap of your surroundings, tag someone else in the photo and ask them the same question. A bit of pointless nonsense but fun all the same.
As you know, I regularly join in with The Gallery over at Sticky Fingers. This week, Tara challenged us to base our post on #widn - to take a photo right at the moment we clap eyes on her prompt for The Gallery. Tara always publishes these posts on a Friday.
Ah Friday night, my favourite night of the week - the promise of a glass of wine and the prospect of a lie-in. Long gone are the days of partying til dawn (actually I'm not sure that I ever really did that!) or even voluntarily leaving the sofa on a Friday night. Quite when this transformation happened I don't know; that subtle shift from party animal to sofa junkie seemed to happen overnight. But right now, my Friday nights look like this:
|Feet up with Alan Carr and a glass of wine #WIDN|
Give me a night in with Alan Carr and I'm happy (as is the dog, clearly!). I was so thrilled when I discovered that Alan was back with a new series, that I even sent a tweet out....
"Best news I've heard for a long time: @chattyman is back. Friday nights are looking up!"
And guess who got a 'favourite' from the A-lister himself? Quite possibly the best thing to have happened to me all week! Told you I was easily pleased these days.
What's your favourite thing to do on a Friday night? Are you as boring as me?!
If you have a spare few minutes, we would love a vote in the MAD Blog Awards, where we happen to be finalists! Click here, then scroll down to 'Best School Days'. Thank you so much :)
