Bank Holiday

It’s Bank Holiday weekend this weekend. Well, here in UK it is. And an excellent weekend of rain. An excellent weekend to waste away time indoors in front of a computer randomly reading blogs and such like. So here’s a colourful picture of some chappals to brighten up a dull and grey morning.

  1. I wish I had read these tips earlier today – I have seriously idled the day away. Actually, quite nice really as am working very hard at the moment so I don’t feel that guilty. Previous post: jacks! I was a champion jack player – I had grey metal ones and coloured metal ones. I wish they weren’t made out of plastic now. Thanks for reminding me of them. Happy Bank Holiday.

  2. Your photo could be more clear and sharp after optimization. Here is the demo (

  3. Cheers Rockmother! I too wish they weren’t plastic now, it’s actually harder to grab several of them at once now, whereas the metal ones were heavier and didn’t go flying all over the place when you tried to quickly “round them up”.

    Thank you for the reference to picopti Aben, I’m not really a user of Picasa but others might find it useful.

    It worked Chakra. Are you still getting an error?

    Cheers HappyB!
