Well done if you guessed last week's 'just for fun' guess the picture. Weights!
The Easter holidays are upon us. Have you banned yourself from chocolate? If so, don't worry, I'll eat some on your behalf… in fact, I'll eat plenty on your behalf!
If you've stayed in touch with my blogs over the years you will know how we are forever tidying and clearing in the Brook home. Look at what I recently came across! My old Sinclair Spectrum and the iconic Horace Goes Skiing game! This must be at least 25 years old. I think it's fabulous and have put it on display. It's amazing to think the games were loaded by cassette and the controls were the rubber keys on the qwerty keyboard. I eventually received a joystick to connect. I've no idea where that is? Other games included Jet Pac, Manic Miner and Hungry Horace. Brilliant! What was your first computer? What games do you remember? I'd love to know.
And how technology has moved on. I'm typing away on my wireless keyboard which is connected to my iPad via Bluetooth. The photos were sent wirelessly from my camera to the iPad and then emailed to my fabulous colleague, Katherine, who very kindly works her magic and puts the blog together for me.
25 years ago, if I heard the term internet I'd have mistaken it for my Dad saying 'in-the-net' – thinking he'd scored a goal or caught a fish!
Do stay in touch on Twitter, I love hearing from you, I'm @mecharliebrook.
Here's this week's guess the picture… and now, some chocolate 🙂
