So I'm starting to think about a new phone, my upgrade is due end of Oct, so there's no real hurry, but opinions are very much welcome.
Bear in mind I'm an Android girl, through and through, so no Apple products pls, and I've only had SE phones for the past 5-7 years.
I mainly use my current X10 as a media player, a camera, and for 'internet stuff'. The camera on it is 8.1mp, and I'd be reluctant to go down from that.
The link for the Xperia Arc is what got me pondering a new phone, I'm reasonably happy with the X10, but would consider switching if "new shiny" could replace it!

The X10 is 4", any bigger and I don't think I'd fit it in my pocket easily (and that's a very big deal, I wouldn't want to have to put it in a cloakroom when out, for example), but I do like it that size, makes picture taking/viewing easier and web pages are reasonable

Stage 3 of testing. Cats responded well to Ke$ha and Cheryl Cole, but not Whitesnake or Muse. Suspect cats are not taking this seriously

You probably follow me on other social media sites, which means you'll know I've done this post, but if not, I did some writings
(I didn't promise they'd be consecutive days, ok?) day 29 - a song from your childhood I'm lucky to have a very good memory. I have vivid memories from childhood, and particularly of holiday......

My aunt is a translator, but is struggling to come up with the correct phrase for something, and I was wondering if any of you guys had suggestions for her/me as I can’t think of anything more suitable!

---------------------------------------------------------

I need your help with something. I’m translating a really good cartoon book written by a friend. The cartoons show a thirties something mum with 3 small kids trying to juggle life, training, romance etc. Can either of you help with the title of the book as I’m having problems with it? The direct translation is “Boobs in free fall”. Free fall is a commonly used expression in Norwegian refering to something dropping quicky and out of control - so it has a double meaning. I don’t really feel the direct translation does it for me, but I’ve been away from my native language a LONG time. Can you two give me some feedback on the direct translation - and/or make suggestions for an alternative to “in free fall”?
