Nearly December...

It's nearly December, the month within which I get one year older. Its also the time I treat myself to a bit of extravagance. Last year I got myself The Complete Sherlock Holmes Collection on DVD. It took me a full 9 months before I had watched the final disc. A wonderful 9 months of sitting in awe at the accurate recreations of the stories. This year, I am going to splash out on a slightly more adept Digital Camera. I currently use a Konica KD-20M that I got from Argos a while back. Its a very cheap 2Mpx camera that does ok on outside pics, but not so good on inside pics. So I was going to go with the Panasonic DMC-FZ3 despite its 3Mpx capability - it has 10x optical zoom and a smashing lens. But now, after talking to my pals in the know, I'm considering the Fuji FinePix F610 Zoom - at a whopping 6Mpx in a compact size. It has amazing reviews, and I think it will suit IcyChick and me to a T. We are not photography experts by any means.

In terms of what's keeping me occupied, well the usual career situation is concerning - where do I belong, where should I be, what do I really want etc. are all questions that I am trying to answer. The good news is that next year is a good year. That's a very good thing indeed.

Nearly time for Xmas. Bring it on!

    Happy birthday to you. Does this mean you'll soon be posting lots of arty photos?

    Not until New Years Eve yet chap!

    As for photos, depends on when I get the camera. If I get it prior to departing to Kent for the Xmas break, I will have some pics of the countryside to put up on the blog. Most likely, what with the money situation getting tighter, I will be tempted to wait for January Sales.
