I wasn't around to post this but two things made me smile yesterday;

First: I got my super new lens for my camera, something I had been scrimping and saving up to get for several months now. :D

Second: My team (West Ham) unexpectedly beat the current European Champions (Chelsea) 3-1. :D :clap:

I spent a good part odds the day surfing the web and watching youtube on what my new Galaxy's3 can do... and I have to voice commands working. Sooooo much fun. "Open Terry Pratchett forum" LOL. "Dial Eve" Mind you... it will NOT dial Truly my daughter... never heard of her. Me and that silly woman had a huge argument... well I did ... she is like ice that one...acts like a complete moron... "I don't understand your question... please repeat it" BLOODY WELL DIAL TRULY YOU IDIOT" ..... "DIAL TRULY!" "THERE'S SO SOMEONE CALLED TRULY IN MY CONTRACTS YOU DWEEB..DIAL TRULY!"

I had 14 alarms set for 7:30 PM until manually converted them for morning after screaming MORNING and AM repeatedly at the phone.

Still.... had fun!

Then I spent ages researching an app for a flashlight for the phone that used the flash like my old phone and one of the BEST things I use and Hayden plopped down.. took my phone off me... opened apps.. widgets.... and showed me that I had an amazing torch already on the phone !!!!!!! Hate when children do that.

Going to my school was an education in itself. Which is not to be confused with actually getting an education (Schultz)

Well, it wasn't today, but yesterday, and it didn't make me smile, but laugh, but I still wanted to share: we got the first phone call from our godson, who will be ten months old in a couple of day.
His mum left the phone lying around and he must have hit re-dial. So when I answered the phone I heard a strange mix of happy baby gurgling, some grunting (you know the sound they make when they're busy with some serious playing) and what very much sounded like him licking the phone and hitting things with the phone (or the other way round).
I just put our phone on loudspeaker, so that bf could hear as well and we enjoyed the show. :mrgreen:

:lol: awwwww. That's SO SO gorgeous! You should've got the mobile out and recorded it. Though I wouldn't think to. Would be too busy enjoying the show.

My daughter did that once with my mobile... here in Australia even disconnected mobile's will call emergency services ... she was in trouble so sat under the bed playing with the mobile... and a really nice lady talked to her... are you okay? You just keep talking to me... its alright I am here... as she gabbled on and on sobbing and babbling.

The emergency operator thought she was someone having a stroke and couldn't talk properly so kept her on the line while they tracked the signal of the phone by satellite. Oh yeah... police and ambulances screamed up to my house.....

That's why I decided to share it. It cheered us up no end.

He called us on the snailphone, so we couldn't record it. Mobile would have been turned off anyway.

Can you imagine how people suddenly started running around in panic when the mobile signal tracker guy shouted "Oh no! It's coming from DEL's house!!!! RUUUUUUN!!!!!". :mrgreen:

So sweeeeet, Julesy! :D

And I should like to announce that, in honour of our successful 4-night run, I shall be sending you, Jules, (as promised in a moment of stupidity) a copy of The Calendar. Merry belated Hogswatch! ;)

You can say that now but, when you see the calendar, remember it's your own fault. ;) :lol:
