I’m sorry, but isn’t ‘awesome’ just a great word? I know it’s a bit too americanese, but I can’t help liking it - the sound of it spoken aloud is just fabulous. I’m not sure where I’ve picked it up from though!

:heart: Number One: I am a Peggle Nights Master!

This popcap game is seriously addictive. If you have a mac, get it (well, get Peggle first, then progress to P.N.). I’ve finished ‘adventure mode’ and so I get this wonderful trophy :-)

:heart: Number Two: Google Streetview was launched in the UK

I know a lot of people have issues with this, because of the whole privacy thing. But all they have done is take photos from the road - anyone has a right to do this (and to geotag them & upload them to the internet!). They’ve been kind enough to blur faces & numberplates - which a regular photographer might not do!

Spring is here! The weather is sunny and it&#8217;s getting warm! I&#8217;ve had to shave my legs so I can get them out a bit, poor pale things - they&#8217;ve had no sun since we went to Mexico in December. Dog walks are more enjoyable than they have been over the past few weeks, and I&#8217;ll be able to dry clothes outside instead of on the airer. Daffodils &amp; tulips are popping up everywhere &amp; All these things make me happy.</p> <p style="text-align: center;"><a title="yellow_20090318_5.jpg" href="http://www.flickr.com/photos/89264451@N00/3367072680/" onclick="javascript:pageTracker._trackPageview('/outbound/article/www.flickr.com');" target="_blank" rel="flickr-mgr"><img src="http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3588/3367072680_8044fe60a5_m.jpg" border="0" alt="yellow_20090318_5.jpg" /></a><br /> <small><a title="Attribution License" href="http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/2.0/" onclick="javascript:pageTracker._trackPageview('/outbound/article/creativecommons.org');" target="_blank"><img src="http://zoecorkhill.co.uk/wp-content/plugins/photo-dropper/images/cc.png" border="0" alt="Creative Commons License" width="16" height="16" align="absMiddle" /></a> <a href="http://www.photodropper.com/photos/" onclick="javascript:pageTracker._trackPageview('/outbound/article/www.photodropper.com');" target="_blank">photo</a> credit: <a title="faeparsons" href="http://www.flickr.com/photos/89264451@N00/3367072680/" onclick="javascript:pageTracker._trackPageview('/outbound/article/www.flickr.com');" target="_blank">faeparsons</a></small></p> <p style="text-align: left;"> <p style="text-align: left;"> <img src='http://zoecorkhill.co.uk/wp-content/plugins/smilies-themer/Simple/heart.png' alt=':heart:' class='wp-smiley' /> <strong> Number Five: I am officially losing weight, woopdy-do!</strong></p> <p style="text-align: left;">I have been eating fairly well for the past month or so &amp; have even been hitting the five a day fruit &amp; veg, mainly with the help of my <a href="http://www.graze.com" onclick="javascript:pageTracker._trackPageview('/outbound/article/www.graze.com');">graze</a> boxes (get your first box for £1 with this code - 9NV2ZM7B). As a result of this I am now the weight I was just before we got married, which means I have lost all my Christmas/honeymoon/overindulging at the start of the year weight, without even trying properly. Yay. Go me.
