Festive Ills & Wishes

Posted by | Diary | No Comments

Christmas TreeAitCHOO.
AaaaCHOOO.
Aichooooooooo.
It was like a germ-riddled version of Four Weddings and a Funeral‘s notoriously sweary opening scene. Several tissues later, we agreed we may as well get up.

And so began the family’s Christmas morning, 2009. Mum is nearly over her cold, my dad’s is just starting, and I am still enduring a flu-based week of hell. Only Michelle has escaped, but trapped in with three germ-filled family members means it’s surely only a matter of time.

This year, we’re at my mum and dad’s for the first Christmas in years. They’ve put on a fantastic spread already, it’s more like a hotel. “Free Internet, too”, my mum generously pointed out.

Looking through Twitter this morning, it’s clear that Christmas magic is still around for many friends and family. Hope you all have a great time, eat a lot and fall asleep mid-afternoon, dreaming of mince pies and diets. 🙂

New Look, New Focus, New Post!

Jump on the social media bandwagon

This website is suffering from world development. No, honestly. A great example came the other night when a few of us trotted up to London to see the comedian Michael McIntyre. I was blown away by how good he was, wanting to tell everyone about it.

Back in the day, the only choice I had was to whack it all up on here. But 2009 has brought me a choice. I could either go home, write a long eulogy on here late into the night, embellish the whole story more than it perhaps deserved, and go to bed exhausted. Or, I could quickly use my mobile phone to let close friends know through Facebook (and everyone else through Twitter), before quickly uploading a picture or two to Flickr. The first choice would have taken a day, and the moment might have passed. The second option was immediate, quick and easy. It’s become so simple to do, it’s a no-brainer.

So these other sites – Twitter and Facebook for little anecdotes and links, Flickr for pictures and Youtube or Vimeo for videos – are taking the spotlight away from wibbler.com, to such an extent that only the really major events are given any time on here. Nowadays I also post a lot on other sites, and you might want to know about these too. It’s all still me, I’m just spreading myself around a bit.

And that, ladies and gentlefolk, is why I’ve updated the site to focus a little more on the pictures, titbits and videos I post. It all comes neatly together into this big Wibbler hub of wonderfulness. Hope you like it…
