Mmm travel. Distracted already. Where was I?

Can’t help but feel kind of ripped off that all these cool camera filter and grading apps once took me ages to set up on Quantel gear [the original ultra expensive Television graphics boxes] and then later Photoshop and After Effects.

Now even my children’s Kid Pix program blows me away with automatic animations, effects and audio. At the click of a single button. And now it’s 3D!

Anyway, whatever. Moving on…
The Interiors Addict recently did a 7 Day Instagram Challenge  which was so fun and v. inspiring.
#7Vignettes judged by Kara Rosenlund, super-stylist with her own vintage caravan of travelling wares. Swoon.

* On my first trip to Europe my then-boyfriend-now-husband and I hired a car from London and drove it onto the Chunnel Train to France. When we got to Calais we were to exchange it for a Left Hand drive vehicle. The French attendant could see the look of disapproval on our faces at the much smaller car we were exchanging for our Opel Astra. It was a mouse on wheels but as our French was tres rubbishe we didn’t have much to say. He looked at us again and announced enthusiastically: Automatique!

Still not convinced but ‘automatique’ has been quoted by one of us ever since whenever we are trying to do a bit of an up-sell.
