New Phone!

The weather was great today, stuff happened and things got done but, really, today was just the day I (finally) got my new phone. I'd had a contract with Orange for years and decided to end it and look for a better deal. ...I ended up back with EE, just with a new handset and £5 extra in my bank account each month. Result. My new number is:  07940 434654

The 13MP camera is plenty decent enough for everyday use.

Choosing which handset to go with was pretty easy. I hate touch screens so, short of giving up and buying a Doro PhoneEasy, Blackberry is always the obvious option. I'd read mixed reviews on the Blackberry Passport, even taking into consideration the fact that most tech reviewers seem to be of the opinion physical keypads should have gone out with the pull up aerial. Then I saw how it handled a spreadsheet. I use my phone mostly for reading - online, offline, plus agendas and supporting docs for work - so the BB's selling points of 60 characters per line and good PDF handling were really big draws for me.

There is also a 2MP selfie camera on the front of the handset.

Size wise, the Passport is big. They say size doesn't matter, but obviously both ways have their pros and cons! The screen is excellent for browsing, watching and reading, and using it feels like having a mini tablet rather than a big phone. On the downside it is a little more awkward to use one handed. But, I did manage to download Instagram, the lack of which was one of my only criticisms of my last Blackberry. I think we're going to get on well. :)

Simply Cook Review

I kept seeing ads and deals for Simply Cook everywhere, so as there was a special offer on at OhMyDosh! Rewards (£3 for the box and £3.50 cashback) I figured I had nothing to lose by giving it a try. What Is It? Recipe kits packed into boxes which fit through your letterbox. The usual price is £9.99 for a kit of 4, with each one serving 2-4 people depending on your serving sizes. All you need to do is buy the fresh ingredients required and follow the instructions. Here is Simply Cook's own helpful diagram: Does It Work? For me, as the person just eating it, it was awesome. Everything tasted great - the mushroom penne in particular was so good I went back for seconds - and I liked that the sauces weren't as rich as Anthony would usually make them. For Anthony, who cooked them, they weren't as impressive. He complained that the food was bland and that it was actually quite a lot of faff, as Lidl didn't stock everything we needed which meant another trip ou
