I am sorry not to have updated you with the last projects! Internet browsers are ganging up against me! Chrome has crashed, and can't be uninstalled or installed on my computer! Internet Explorer won't let me upload photos to Typepad, so I am here with Firefox seeing if that works!
I love them both! The first is very quick and easy, but I love the character of the one above here.
Also I have added a new handbag to the site;

It's exam time for the Sandberg kids. Holly is preparing at uni in Bournemouth by eating pizza, Max is here in Southampton playing his computer game - and Nicole has a radical approach, she's in Plymouth revising!
Have you heard of Snapchat? It's an app where you take a photo and send it to someone with a message on, and they can only see it for a few seconds. So I am constantly gettting pictures sent from the kids and I have had to train myself to put my glasses on before opening them, otherwise it's gone before I've seen it!
If you're quick you can screenshot them, but it's not the cool thing to do! And it's definitely not cool to save the pictures and put them on your blog! ;)
Aren't we lucky to have all the technology we have now to keep us in contact around the world. When I worked on the ships I used to have to find a phone ashore to contact home, and it used to be such a pain finding one, plus it was very expensive - I didn't usually make it past the shops/bar on the way there! My poor neglected Mum!
We got Mum started with an account on Facebook so that she could see pictures of family my sister and I post there. Mum is about as handy with a computer as a chocolate teapot, and hasn't a clue what she's doing on Facebook, but is just enjoying browsing around looking at photos. Or so she thinks - actually she's pressed requesting to be peoples friends on several occasions - and it's friends of the children, goodness knows how she got there! She has no idea how to ask someone to be a friend, so has no idea how this has happened! But can you imagine how cool it is for the kids when their grandmother is requesting to be a friend to their friends?!! Poor Mum is now frightened to click on anything! She has been instructed to look and not touch!
I hope you have had a lovely weekend, and if it's Mother's Day in your country, I hope you have had a lovely family time.
Enjoy the rest of the weekend!
Love and smiles,
