Do you ever lie on Facebook?

My husband isn’t on Facebook. The (self-proclaimed) Northern Love Machine did have a page, but decided to close it down. “If I want to speak to someone, I’ll ring them,” he said. “I don’t even really know half the people on there anyway.”

He has a point.

Since I started the new job at the beginning of the month, I’ve spent more time on Facebook. I get into work at 5am and it’s one of the first sites I check. It says a lot about the age we live in, that often the “big” things people are talking about will be picked up by social networking sites before other forms of media. Continue reading

So I didn’t win, but I had a bloomin’ good time

This weekend has opened my eyes to a few things:

1) I am a sore loser

2) I can’t consume more than three glasses of wine before getting all loud and over-excited

3) I should never be allowed on a rickshaw after drinking said three glasses of wine

4) I am a terrible singer. Continue reading

Step onto my stage

It’s that time of week again. The time where I ask for some friends.

What a loser I am.

No, but seriously. I’m looking for three new blogs to feature in my Introducing post this Thursday. No meme’s, linkys or anything even slightly draining required. All you have to do is email me at mothersalwaysright@gmail.com and introduce yourself.

I’ll then pick three new blogs to feature in the post on Thursday. It’s your chance to say hello to me and to anyone else who reads my blog (particularly my mum).

For the skim readers amongst you, I’ll make it extra simple:

  1. Email me: mothersalwaysright@gmail.com
  2. Introduce yourself and include a link to your blog

It really is that easy. Now don’t say I never give you anything.

Blogger arrested for fly-tipping

Today is a bad day. Today is a “throw your computer in the bin and sulk for the entire afternoon” day.
 
Okay, so I know yesterday I vowed to stop being such a hater. But I can’t help it. I HATE technology! And more than that, I HATE when I don’t know how to use it.
 
I spent the entire two hours of Frog’s nap this afternoon trying to work out how to add a Facebook “like” button to my blog.  (Did I mention this took me two hours?!).  This was after spending the entire one hour of her nap this morning setting up a Facebook page for said blog.
 
Well, the Facebook page is finally up and running (I know, I know, it’s easy to do, but I’m technically challenged, Okay?) but the illusive “like” button is not. It is nowhere to be seen.  So I am now less popular than a fart in a lift and currently only have two “likes” on my page.  And one of those is from a good friend, so doesn’t even count. Even my own mother doesn’t “like” my Facebook blog page (granted, she isn’t on Facebook, but even so…)
 
So, if you never hear from me again, please assume I have succumbed to one of the following:
a)      Jumped into the nearest canal after losing my mind with rage at Facebook and all technology in general.
b)      Given up blogging and all online pursuits in favour of the good old fashioned carrier pigeon and letter in a bottle.
c)      Broken the law and been arrested for fly tipping after throwing my computer into the nearest field full of cow muck.

Of course, you could save me from all of the above if you just “like” my new Facebook page. If I get at least 5 “likes” by tomorrow, maybe I’ll reconsider the carrier pigeon. Thanking you in advance. The End.

Please save me from this pigeon
