Oh Apple Please Do Make your Products more Affordable

I first became interested in Apple computers when I saw the design of the Power Mac G4, it looked stylish, contemporary and like nothing in its time. Unfortunately, you had to be in the ‘Mac Club’ to afford it. I wasn’t but still dreamed of owning a Mac one day. Fast forward 8 years to 2012 when my late fiancé bought me one for Christmas.

2017 – The Time to Get Moving and Achieve Those Dreams

Moving Time - Clock

I haven’t posted as much as I would have liked this year. Following up from my going anti-social post last year I have had an extremely busy year moving house, twice! After living and outgrowing our family home for 16 years I decided it was the right time to sell and move house.  Since January 2015, life has been extremely busy after the sudden loss of my fiance, forced into single motherhood and deciding to go back to my old career in working with children to gain a regular income.  With a job, I love and more importantly had the opportunity to meet new wonderful people. I had further dreams to fulfil and obviously doing this without Shaun was emotionally difficult as it was our family home, I was selling!

Gumtree Property Scam – Dont Fall Victim

James Campbell Text Message

Over the years, although heard of, I have never fallen victim to a GumTree scam. I recently sold my home and before I move to my new home I need to go into rented accommodation for 3 months.  With 3 weeks before the big move, I placed a little advert on Gumtree to see if anyone had any short-term lets available. Amazingly on waking the next morning, I had received several text messages from different people.
