Upcycling, a broken mobile phone, Instagram frames are back and so is the heat (but not necessarily in that order)
Weekend Coffee Share 25/08/2019
Hello! We have yet another heatwave in the UK and it’s making me feel very uncomfortable. However it is also a long weekend as tomorrow is a holiday, so it will please a lot of people that it isn’t raining.
Sunday is fast becoming the day when I draft a few posts and schedule them for the coming week, but today I think I’m only going to write this post. Quite frankly, I am wilting in the heat and I can’t think of anything to write beyond this update. 🥀
I told you a while back that I was having problems with my Android mobile phone. The screen becomes unresponsive more often than not and I have to keep restarting it to make any progress. It has been very frustrating, but the thought of sending it off to be repaired was worse.
Anyway, on a whim I did go into the phone shop and arrange to have it repaired. They were going to give me a loan phone, with a £50 damage waiver, so I declined that and dusted off the old iPhone. I now have a nail biting 2 weeks to wait for the return of my Android. I hope they can fix it. Good news is that it’s still within the warranty, so if they can’t fix it then it should get replaced. The iPhone is good but it has its limitations, especially the way some websites are displayed.
I watched all of The Great British Interior Design Challenge Season 2 on Netflix. It was really good. Now I want to upcycle everything! I’m having difficulty getting into Season 3 and I’m not sure if it’s my mood or because they may have changed the format slightly.
I seem to be the only one to have noticed this, but… when you use the Instagram filters in the Android app they no longer include the ability to add a frame. However, my iPhone app still allows me to do this – yay! Why though?
I have had some lovely incoming mail recently and it really does lift the spirits for a while. I just hope that I can generate the same sort of happiness with the cards and letters I send people.
Craft projects are all on hold in this heat (despite the upcycling urge). Meanwhile, there’s lots of planning going on in the bujo.
So that’s all my news for now. Please do let me know in the comments what you have been watching, new favourite hobby or whether you’re an Android fan or iPhone.
Thank you for reading 😊
