Technofear.....



I don't cope well with change, but sometimes it's time to try new things....like these silicone cup-cake moulds. I've been eyeing up silicone cake moulds in the shops for months now, but have held off buying any as they were expensive and I might not like them. However, last week at work The Book Man (a company, not an actual book man!) had these at £3 per pack - how could I balk at that price? So this afternoon I am going to see what happens when they are put to use....let's hope they don't end up a gelatinous blob in the bottom of the baking tray....


Likewise it was time to admit that my faithful old digital camera has seen better days, especially when it kept shutting down just when I wanted to take decent pictures in Boston.
So thanks to Boots & their better-than-half-price offer, I now have a spanking new Fuji Finepix....which may stay in it's box for a few days until I can figure out how to use it from the instruction manual. Instruction manuals make me want to cry a little bit. They make things look so complicated - all I really need is a nice person to actually show me how things work and I'd pick it up straight away.

Fujis are great cameras, very intuitive. My first and my present ones are Fujis - thing is, half the things on any digital camera you won't use, the best thing to do is get out there and get snapping, after all, it's not as if you are going to run out of film! And then read the manual. (I am the worlds'worst manual reader, I just welly on in there regardless!)

Nice camera! I swear by Fuji FinePix. Love them!

Let us know how the silicone cases go. I've tried a silicone mini muffin tray and I didn't like it. Possibly my worst buy of 2009. Mind you, it makes groovy icecubes!
