It's just so easy to find things to distract me at the moment. The past couple of days it has been Skype.
The idea is to be able to make video calls to my sister's family, recently moved to Bonn in Germany. It will be lovely to be able to have brief chats with my nieces and nephew and actually see their smiling faces -- once they get online themselves! So I bought a web cam on the weekend and spent yesterday evening setting it up (pretty easy, but I started fairly late in the evening).
So tonight, just as I sat down intending to, you know, WRITE, it struck me that I hadn't tested Skype out yet. I had added a few contacts, but had no idea how this manifested as a video call.
A quick text to my parents fixed this, and we tested it out. It's remarkably easy, and you have the option of using video or not, which saves on bandwidth once the novelty of a video call wears off.
I have posted a pic of Chenna, sleeping peacefully, taken with the web cam!
