Wotchya! And Happy New Year!

How has the first full working week of the year treated you? Here at The World of Suzy Homemaker, it's been bloody amazing!

2015 didn't start out like that, though. I put it down to the sodding "New Year, New You" movement.

From losing weight, to getting fit, to finding a new job, New Year's Resolutions are as much a part of the Yuletide festivities as the fat man in a red suit.

The iPhone is reputedly the world's most popular camera (according to Apple!) and yet, when it comes to saving those precious snaps to your computer, so many people get confused... including me!

Call me a dinosaur, but I like to housekeep computer files manually. That includes photos. 

With the changes to camera roll and photostream in the recent iOS8 update, it's more important than ever to keep your images organised, but how? 

Although a relatively recent iMac convert, I've been using iOS devices for several years now and merrily snap away on both the iPhone and iPad. But it wasn't until recently that I got my head around the best way to transfer photos between my mobile devices and my desktop.

Yes, my mac has iPhoto but for some reason, it's an application that makes very little sense to me. (Translation... possibly because of my fanatical housekeeping tendencies!)

Have you noticed how when you meet people, one of the first things they want to know is how you spend your time?

"What do you do for a living?" (Translation: "Do you earn more money than me?")

"What's your role"? (Translation: "Is your job more glamorous than mine?")

"What DO you do all day?" (Translation: "Are you a fully paid up, useful member of society, according to my terms?"

How to clear formatting in Microsoft Word -

Starting out on this blogging lark has taken me on a massive learning curve. Not least of which involves a swift, sharp lesson in web design.

If, like me, you're used to laying out everything nice and neatly in Word, you might be wondering how you clear all that lovely formatting.

Well, if you have a great Content Management System (CMS) such as I use for The World of Suzy Homemaker, you simply copy the text from your original, formatted document, hit the "paste as plain text" button in your CMS and hey presto.
