My Own Favs


My Favs



Our local vicar isn't afraid to show his elegances. by Jamie Kitson My kind of garden centre. by Jamie Kitson Recently noticed that my drawer at work has inductions on what to do in the event of a bomb threat. Also went a bit overboard at the Easter sales. by Jamie Kitson Managed to tip couscous into my coffee thinking it was brown sugar. #MiddleClassProblems by Jamie Kitson Yet another sunset. by Jamie Kitson Decorating birthday cakes - the reason I wanted to have children. by Jamie Kitson Made Kamran his first pizza. He either loved it or was very very hungry. by Jamie Kitson Camden Lock by Jamie Kitson Trees Over London by Jamie Kitson I think Bananagrams is better with a theme. by Jamie Kitson Nice sky this evening. by Jamie Kitson Little feet. Obviously before lunch. by Jamie Kitson Wolverhampton Civic Hall sells beer in 2 pint glasses which make people's hands look freakishly small. by Jamie Kitson Browsing the Tea Aisle by Jamie Kitson Matching outfits - check. by Jamie Kitson Middle class doll's house complete with solar panels. by Jamie Kitson #Photoshoot.

Our wedding photographer was cheaper. by Jamie Kitson Apparently I'm doing this all wrong, Tas seems to think it's a Sudoku puzzle. by Jamie Kitson Thanks Andrew. Sounds like an insult that an Aussie would use. by Jamie Kitson Facetime lighting solution. by Jamie Kitson

How not to Transfer Your Domains Between Registrars

TL;DR: i) Before transferring your domains to a new registrar make sure every single piece of contact information on them is EXACTLY the same. ii) I can't recommend Gandi.net. I own several domains, one of which I use for my primary email address. A while ago I read Naoki Hiroshima's account of bein...

Recommended Apps for Windows Phone 8

True Calendar 8The native WP8 calendar sucks, it defaults to viewing one day, but doesn't fit it onto one screen, it doesn't have a week view at all, the month view is pretty much useless because you can't read the appointments and if you try to click on them or click on a day it switches to the cra...
