Why I Could Never Be A Travel Blogger

adelaideLoving every moment of being here with Goldfinch. So glad I am finally here! I have been taking lots of photos and writing own little thoughts in my notebook to formulate into posts later. I wonder if anyone is thinking, “COME ON CARAMEL…WHERE ARE THE HOLIDAY PHOTOS? WE WANT TO SEE ADELAIDE!” Or maybe that thought is about as far from your mind as I am from London right now. 10,100 miles away!!!

I am a bit of a technophobe at the best of times, and I cannot figure out how to create a post on my tablet with photos on my tablet. I am sure there is a way…but it is beyond me!

On three occasions in recent weeks I had to explain what a Luddite was to staff who were trying to advise me on “issues” with my phone and my laptop. Two were PC World advisers and one was a Vodafone adviser. They had never heard of the term “Luddite”. When I explained who the original Luddites were, I then had to reassure them that when I called myself a Luddite I was joking, I don’t actually try to destroy technology…it’s never in anger, but always an accident when I drown, drop or destroy by other means my electronic devices.

Another Wednesday, another Shower Song!

When we were children, my Dad decided he would try cable television. He was interested in the sports channels. But my sisters and I found a show that we absolutely loved. There are some sixties songs that I know only because of the series which was about five (originally six) girls from an orphanage who came to live with the wealthy Nick Foley.

Every episode featured music from the sixties – but with different lyrics that told the story of one or more of the girls. In many cases I know the words used in the series rather than the words on the original recordings!

This was one of the first songs in the pilot episode of “Rags To Riches” and me and my sisters fell in love with it from the start. We still sing those songs years later, and I sing them in the shower. This is the six girls singing “Yackety Yak”.
