A week without mobile data – did I cope?!

When I signed up for my contract in November 2014, 500mb of data seemed fine. Through 2015 I was on Maternity Leave so I had WiFi most of every day. Then I went back to work… In February a phone ‘glitch’ meant I used up all my data because Google Play was downloading all and every app update on 4G. Argh. EE to the rescue though – they gave me an extra 500mb for free. Then last Thursday my phone

Three months with a new baby: 8 things I couldn’t have lived without

H is now three months old. I cannot believe it’s been that long already. Life has changed so much in that time but yet H being here also feels completely normal, as if she always has been. But getting to this point has been hard work and there are a number of things which being without would have made getting this far so much harder*! Tea: During pregnancy I completely went off tea.

I have been putting it off for so long, almost 4 months have passed since I first put some of my mobile code live. Today I decided to spend

Gone mobile…well, partly

So I have ‘launched’ some aspects of my mobile website now. The About Me and Photos sections were the first to go. These were followed on Sunday by the Music section. Today I have just knocked-up the Reviews section. Album Details page I’m sure I could fine-tune bits of it, but I am quite pleased for my first cut. I have the Travel and Blog functions remaining though. The latter is going to prove trickier because I have to make

Going mobile

On Friday, I noticed something quite shocking when looking at the mobile version of my blog – it has adverts popping-up at the bottom. Adverts. Adverts! This upset me. As users of my site may have noticed, it’s only the blog section which has a mobile version – everything else is just a re-size of the main site. The thought of having to build an entire mobile site from the ground-up seemed like a lot of effort (especially when I
