Smart Phone Addiction

I wouldn’t necessarily put mobile phones in the same category as  tobacco and alcohol when it comes to addiction but some are saying that they clearly need to carry a health warning at least. Maybe ‘Phones make you narcissistic’ isn’t really the catchiest of  messages but it does sum up what  academics in this article are saying about how spending an average of 3.6hrs a day on your smart phone distracts from real life and can...

Book Club Etiquette

            If you think belonging to a book club is just an excuse to meet up for a chinwag and a glass of wine (yep, that was me!) then think again. Having recently joined a local club made up of 7 other mums who I loosely know, I have quickly found out there is definitely a book club etiquette that needs to be adhered to. Such as; 1. Never disclose the name of the book you are suggesting prior to the...

Dodging the romance

So the next big day in the commercial calendar is February 14th , the day of romance, the day of love! Or for many of us cynics, the day of exorbitant restaurant prices and the day of receiving those last minute petrol station flowers – or god forbid, the day of receiving nothing at all from your loved one!! Husband – be warned.  Of course if you are like me, I always say ‘oh I don’t believe in Valentine’s day, it’s a rip off’...

Has the Kindle had its day?

Remember the hoo ha when e-readers first hit the market? How bookshops trembled at the mere mention of the ‘K’ word. I’ve never really embraced the whole Kindle thing having always preferred the feel of a book, flicking over the pages, the smell of it (well the ones from the 10p book fairs maybe). I might be considered old school in my approach but it seems that recent stats are pointing to an upturn in the number of ‘physical’ books...

Why texting is such a pain in the neck

A fascinating fact about the traumas of texting. Apart from bumping into things whilst walking and texting, research has now shown that there is a rise in the number of neck injuries caused by texting. They’ve even given it a medical term ‘text neck’. There’s also one called ‘iPad Shoulder’. Errr, I think the researchers were obviously snowed under that day and just said ‘I haven’t got time to think up another name – it’ll have to do!...
