Saturday 1:21pm AEST
Yesterday (Friday) was a busy day and I just didn't get to post this weekly wrap-up.
We took a drive out to Cape Schanck on the Southern coast of Victoria. The plan was to have a light picnic there. It's a very picturesque coastline.
I was wearing my Sinn 103 St Sa chronograph;
Because I wanted to keep track of day and date while I worked on this Social Media assignment that was due on Wednesday.
I had to trudge through 23 social media sites and explain them. Some of them were obscure to me and more than a few of them would not allow a detailed view without signing up to them. Which I was not going to do. Then I had to list their suitability for library use. Many of them mimic each other in terms of function or purpose, to some degree, and I am now of the opinion that the world does not need 23 social media websites.
Assignments 2 and 3 were completed and handed in. I could breathe easy for a day or so before commencing the next two projects for this unit. To bring a little more closure to the completion of the two assignments, I switched over to the Omega Seamaster 300;
Busy, busy. I drove out to see my Mother's solicitor in the morning. The appointment was for 10:ooam and I didn't want to take any chances with early morning traffic, so I left my house at around 8:20, since I'd have to travel across town to get to his office which is about ten minutes away from my Mother's house. I live a 50 minute drive from her house.
Surprisingly, traffic was light and I managed to park my car outside his office at around 9:25am. I found a cafe across the road and hunkered down for half an hour. I had already switched over to the vintage Omega Seamaster Chronometer, circa 1969;
Time to go get a new phone. I'd done my research over the past few weeks and settled on a Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini. This phone, from reviews that I'd read, delivers some pretty good battery life and that's my main criteria for a phone right now. I don't use phones all that much. I might make half a dozen calls throughout the week and maybe send or receive six or seven text messages, as well as check e-mails throughout the day. Beyond that, I don't need to watch movies or listen to music on my phone. I just want something with a decent standby capability.
I just charged up the phone. Now, the fun begins. Hopefully, this thing will last two-and-a-half to three days before I need to charge it again. I have the screen brightness set down low and I've set e-mail notifications to fetch instead of push. I don't leave my phone on 24 hours a day so, with a little luck, I might just have a phone that does what I want it to do.
Anyway, much to do around the house at the moment, so I'll sign off for now. I hope you've all had a decent week and I hope you have a great weekend!
Thanks for reading!
