Today, I was checking my statistics to see who was viewing my blog and I saw several hits coming through from Youtube but I don’t have any videos on there so I had to investigate and followed the links back and found a young girl talking about her November favourite things and she mentioned my Jamie Oliver recipe of cauliflower macaroni cheese as one of her favourite recipes. Some of her tens of thousands of followers have been visiting me. If you do follow the link to see her video, beware that it really is for young teenagers. You just never know who is reading your blog, folks. There are too many links to follow back on any given day but those ones stood out because they were from Youtube. I have been trying to persuade my son to make a video of me cooking – well my hands cooking anyway – but I haven’t been successful yet. He had to do one for his photography degree and it came out really well so I think he should be using those skills to help his mother. Sigh! – one day.
Yesterday I had to catch the bus back from work because Adriano, who usually takes me home, had to work late. Well, I have discovered I really am not very good at doing nothing for 45 minutes. I counted red cars, found shapes in the clouds, tried to name all the countries in the world (failed miserably) and then fell asleep – very embarrassing when the head drops like a stone and then flicks up as you wake. What do you all do when you have an enforced period of inactivity in a public place?
