Travel Theme: Illuminated


colour therapy

Long winter evenings of late have been spent in some rather trivial (but always constructive) pursuits – Across the Bored likes to multitask when faced with sitting through a less than riveting televised programme, so we do little repairs, hand sewing long neglected (we tried needlepoint but counting stitches was problematic), trash useless emails or clean the phone. It was while busy with this last task that we discovered over 300 apps all nicely tucked into categories on 4 home screens…. What? Perhaps this was the reason for our poor phone’s weakened state, rapidly draining battery and dwindling memory: that and the over 2000 photos we just can’t seem to part with.

6 hours later with a good number of lame apps gone and the camera roll reduced by half (it’s a start and yes, they are backed up in 2 different places), we had made a lovely reacquaintance with some of the nifty photo-editors that had been dormant for awhile.

We have been illuminated.
