It’s been a rough week about these parts. I’ve been sick. The kidlet has been sick. Thankfully it’s only a mild cold, but it’s been enough to disrupt his sleep (and therefore mine) and generally make me feel off enough that accomplishing anything that requires a brain has been difficult.
The result is that I haven’t done much work on anything – writing, reading, website. But I’ve actually had enough energy (thanks to prednisolone agitation) to get some things done around the house. We got some new furniture delivered this week: a new wall unit/display cabinet for the lounge room and DVD storage shelves, which both got filled. DVD organisation proper is still to come, though (see lack of brain).
I also got a new toy in the mail yesterday – a new camera! I’ve been using and loving my Canon EOS400D for a few years, and have gotten enough interest in photography where an upgrade was worth it. I toyed with the idea of going for a higher end model, but for what I need, the EOS600D is perfect. Down the track, I may invest in some better glass, but having the ability to video on the DSLR as well as the flip out screen (which I love from my old Canon point and shoot) is awesome. You can see the inaugural photo above, with the kidlet being suitable photogenic 😉
