Post-pals

Posted on

I accomplished my first good deed of 2014 by sending a letter to a special young girl. When I found out about Postpals.co.uk I knew I had to get involved. Post-pals is a charity which enables people to send letters, cards and gifts to sick children who desperately need cheering up. I have chosen a child who I plan to write and send gifts to on a monthly basis. On a more random basis I shall send gifts to other children on the website.

I look forward to dedicating some of my time to help make sick children smile… That’s two of my 2014 aspirations already underway (Make people smile and help some charities). Why don’t you get involved and visit the website yourself. There are people that send letters/gifts from overseas so you don’t have to live in The U.K to take part. It makes me happy knowing that I am somehow making a difference in people lives.

Something I Stumbled Upon

Posted on

As if I haven’t got enough to distract me from doing something constructive with my evenings. I have just lost an hour of my life trawling through a website a friend recommended. Now I’m usually the last person to discover anything interesting and in this case it is  probably no exception.

http://www.stumbleupon.com provides pages and pages of pictures, info and articles that engages your personal interests. So I registered (it’s free) and started by clicking on 5 genre’s to personalise my stumble… you then of course click on stumble and it searches for a pages that may take your interest which apparently you wouldn’t normally find on the net when searching yourself. So far I like it but will it be just a novelty at first and will I get bored with it? That’s something I’ll find out in time.

So today I stumbled upon an artist’s work that caught my eye. His work is simple yet genius. Everyday objects/materials are transformed with a little bit of wire and brought to life. The art of ‘Bent Objects’  by Terry Border is humorous and creative… I only wish I’d thought of this myself 🙂
