Instagram

I'm finally on Instagram! My username is jenthousandwords if you would like to follow me. I thought I'd share here the photos I've taken so so far - please let me know if you'd like to me to share my Instagram pics here on my blog in future or if I should just keep them on Instagram.

3. Loving the Outlander series.
4. Sewing squab covers.

1. Taking my new trifle bowl out of the packaging and see it's cracked. Grrr! I hate unshopping (returning or exchanging things). So boring and weather awful as we had a tornado yesterday.
2. Cute turquoise wedges today, and teal toes.
3. Cuddling on the hammock.
4. Aah, summer is here.

1. Polka dot nails.

4. My guys.

    1. No recipe, literally just thick fluffy pancakes (the recipe I use is in my eBook, link at top of page), with leftover vanilla buttercream icing on top, and then cinnamon sprinkled over. Sooooo good!! Tastes like a cinnamon roll.

  2. Hi Jen, I love that you're on Instagram, so I can finally ask someone who's new to it - how does it work. I confess I just don't get it. Do you have to have a smart phone and the instagram app and then you take a pic on your smart phone and then how does it get to instagram. Or do you take a pic with your camera and then again how does it get on instagram. I'm confused! So, if you wouldn't mind a little post on Instagram for Dummies, I'd much appreciate it. I love the idea of being able to quickly capture little snippets of life, but the getting it on instagram part doesn't seem that quick or straightforward - either that or I'm too stupid for instagram!!

    1. I'm new to it myself but I'll try to answer. You do need the Instagram app and a smartphone. Then you can either use photos you've taken with your phone normally, or in the Instagram app there is a camera. Apply whatever filters you want - there's a little row of thumbnails below your photo that you touch - and add a caption and publish to your "stream". You can also follow other people, and other people can follow you. You can "Like" each others' photos or leave comments.

  3. Oh and Jen, sorry but this is on a completely different subject but I just remembered I was thinking about asking you. Did you ever watch a programme called "Wanted Down Under" when you were in the UK - families who were considering a move to Aus/NZ got to try out the lifestyle before making the decision. They looked at work opportunities, school for the kids, property and then choose whether the UK or Aus/NZ was better.

    I had been thinking it would be nice if you could do a post on those lines, sharing your thoughts on life in NZ and how it compares to the UK and South Africa - what are the pros and cons in terms of work, property, education, family/friends, shopping/entertainment, etc., etc.

    Sorry for hijacking your instagram post, but I didn't want to forget to ask/suggest. Thanks.

    1. We used to love watching those before we came over! I will mull over a post on that, thanks for the suggestion.
