Problem solved!

Yay! I am happy to report some problem solving has been taking place whilst you weren't looking!

Problem #1

May I refer you to the post immediately before this one.

I swallowed my pride and any stubbornness and solved the problem which, as expected, involved me giving in and smoothing things over. The picture I posted gave me inspiration and I just sent him an e-mail, like so;

Wow! I'm such a lovely girlfriend, aren't I? And you know you could learn a thing or two from my apologising technique.

Anyway, I didn't have to wait too long before he replied asking to meet for lunch. So yaaay! I did it! Sorted.

And so onto...

Problem #2

In a nutshell; I wanted to take up photography but alas (!), I do not have a digital SLR camera. The price of a good starter kit coupled with my complete noobness (novice), meant I didn't want to spend £400+ on something I wasn't even sure I was going to be any good at/enjoy. So the purchase of a DSLR was somewhat put on hold. I began to resign myself to the fact that it was going to be on hold indefinitely, just like the acoustic guitar I was going to buy and teach myself to play. Oops!

But no! A digital night in shining armour has rescued this damsel in distress and she shall at last go to the digital photography ball! (Oh shut up, you love it!) My sisters friend and work college has decided to sell his;
  • 16 month old Sony A350 camera (fully and originally boxed)
  • Sony 18 - 70mm kit lens
  • Sigma 18 - 55mm lens
  • Tamron 70 - 200mm lens
all for £320!! I've done my research, that's a steal! And after a long, hard think (approx. 3hours lol) and many detailed questions to the seller, I decided Bruce's price is right! His name is not Bruce -- I'm so excited I'm talking gobbledegook! I mean, please observe just how bloody beautiful it looks here!

So watch this space as I begin my ascent up the incredibly steep learning curve that is digital photography. I'm dead excited!

Just so you know, I am probably going to blog again today as I have something funky to share with you!
