  • What will you find on our blog? Well, I am sure the rest of the website will deal with most of what you need to know about Bambuno stuff. Twitter and facebook will keep you up to date with news and offers, so here you will find both Bambuno- and non-Bambuno related bits and bobs, or bits and bats if you live in Yorkshire.

    Having spent some considerable, usually tea- and Green and Blacks- fuelled hours in the world of website building, sometimes forgetting that the laptop had not infact become my lap, I am ready to distance myself from the Undo and Refresh buttons. In itself, it is refreshing not to be able to 'undo' things in day-to-day life.

    How useful that would be, though! Washing left out in the rain? UNDO. Caught by a speed camera? UNDO. Ate that cake that you swore, promised yourself, absolutely were going to save until tomorrow. UNDO.

    In fact, this was inspired by the story of an IT techy colleague of a friend of mine, who when baking, added too much flour and whose instinct was to reach for the undo button. Thankfully and hopefully this is one area that IT and AI will never be able to invade (oh, do I sound quaint to my great-great-great-great grandchildren who are undoing time left, right and centre with a squeeze of their latest hand-held device?).

    No, no undo for me. Let's move on, and admire the imperfection of our days with all their mistakes, and save the undo button for getting things right on paper or on the screen. (Oops, I just let slip my fledging sideline as a proofreader....)
