Back to Business...

I am back.  I am in one piece.  I am tropical disease free (although I am rocking a dreadful cold thanks to the chilly English weather).  I am all kinds of inspired and exhausted and challenged and drained.  

I have so many notes to work my way through and over 800 photos to filter before I can coherently put together an account of my time in Uganda but I am hoping that it will be before the end of the week, brain-power permitting.

Even now as I sit here and write this, as Meg and Eli practice their exercises on my yoga mat just a few feet away and the dog repeatedly head-butts me in the eternal signal of 'I want a walk', as I ponder what we will eat for dinner which doesn't require too much preparation...as life just continues, it feels strange to think that this time last week I was in Uganda.  Experiencing so much.  Hearing so much.  Seeing so much.

How will I ever even begin to unravel everything?

TalkTalk Review: TV Mix Off


As any fans of the show will know, TalkTalk TV are the proud sponsors of The X Factor and this year they have created a brand new app to get fans closer to the talent show.

The TalkTalk Mix Off app gives viewers of the show the chance to star in their own unique music video taking inspiration from some of the nation’s favourite pop stars.  Whether it’s recreating your favourite boy band dance routine or channeling your inner diva in front of a wind machine, it's another great way for TalkTalk homes and fans of The X Factor to get even closer to the show. 

You can download the app onto Apple devices, android devices or use your computer and it is very straightforward.

How it works:

* First you select your track, video style and customise it.


* Then you record your performance - sing along, dance like crazy and have fun etc

* Finally, there is the option to mix it up by adding others to your video.

It is a lot of fun and so easy to use.  Meg and Eli have had lots of fun creating their own videos to some of their favourite tracks.

Why don't you see what you can create?
