I had a very official picking process. You know the one where you tear bits of paper up from one of the kids refills, and write all the names down, and then put them in a little pile and close your eyes and dive your hand in? One of those. Now I wanted to take a picture of the process or at the very least the winners name, but in famous Busy style the batteries have run out again in the camera, and the the two spare ones are in fact only one due the fact that when we were in Rotorua, I dropped one and it fell through the planks of the bridge we were standing on and straight into the river, and I wasn't about to dive in and try and find it!
So what I would normally do would be to take a really dodgy picture on the webcam. Another bit of a drama, unfortunately, is that my computer is currently away, as it caught something very nasty and at this very moment is being poked and prodded to try and retrieve all my photos and documents, which is giving me a bit of heartburn as I think I could possibly lose them all.
Sooooo I am on the family laptop which as I may have said before is a bit like waiting at the deli where you have to take a number and wait your turn. You know the one where you are number 58 and they have only just called out 24? But thats not the point. The point is this flash RED laptop does not have a photo capture facility on it. Oh its got a motion detector and a time lapse thingy, in case you want to set it up in the garden to watch a flower emerge from the depths of winter or something. And a heap of special effects on the video, but nope I cannot just TAKE A PHOTO!
Lucky for me I already put up a flash pic of the little zipped pouch, otherwise I would not have got a record NINE comments. Yep this blog is getting real popular!!!
