My lesson today was

not to make assumptions... they do tend to turn around and bit you on the assumption if you do!

It was a rather timely lesson for me to learn to... I like most everyone else just assume that since you know how to do something then everyone else does... WRONG on my part! We all have to learn new things... we don't always just know something... and the great timing... well I have an instructive type article to write and this lesson will help me to keep in mind that just because I know how to do something that I should NOT assume that everyone else does...

End of lesson...

Well so I thought... I apparently had more than the one lesson on the cards for me today... the next lesson for me is one of patience! And those who know me in real life know that I struggle with patience... its a virtue so I have been told that I do not have in abundance...

My lesson in patience comes in the form of a new toy for me... a very nice brand spanking new toy... with a US battery charger involved!!!!
Did you know US power plugs and New Zealand power sockets do NOT like each other? I kinda did and assumed... ooops there's that first lesson again... that my new toy would come with an adaptor... and it should... however it was missed out getting into the box...
The lady on the other end of the phone was very apologetic and promised to get an adaptor on the courier to me today... with the promise of a Saturday Delivery... one catch there mind... couriers don't usually deliver in our neck of the woods on a Saturday... and since this weekend here in NZ is a long weekend... well I might just have to wait till Tuesday for said adaptor to turn up!

What is my new toy? Its a lovely shiny, never ever been used Canon 500D camera with 18-55mmIS lense... yay for me...

So two lessons to learn for me today... can I survive them?


Now since you have ever so patient listening to my ramblings... drat there is lesson two up again... I will leave you with my new releases this week...
Remember they will be 25% off for 24 hours starting 6pm (australian time) tonight...

Images as always are linkied up...

OMG WTF No international adaptor??? Thats insane, what were they thinking when they sent it out. I am so sorry you have to wait for a few more days that absolutely stinks. Fingers crossed for an early Tuesday morning arrival if not beforehand. How cool though, a flash new camera, it will be worth the wait but patience is something I have little of as well, so I understand how you are feeling. Looking forward to hearing all your tips and tricks :) Hope you are having the glorious weather we are xx
