Hi there dear blog reader! You should have noticed my blog has changed! I felt the time had come to move on and mature or “grow the hell up” as some people might say! With the recent blog name change I thought the little green noober wasn’t carrying his weight, shame, I liked having him around! Anyway I wanted a fresh new theme. If you’re interested it’s called Mystique and can be customised in so many ways.
I’m still ironing out the bugs and getting to grips with the new layout, but I quite like it, especially the funky multi-tasking widget on the right. And yes, those are photos of me up there, taken this afternoon. Point and laugh!
I haven’t done much writing this last week, been suffering from major headaches to the point where the last thing I wanted to do was stare at a screen. Usually it’s my finger tips that complain due to over use, but right now my eyes are in agony. Yeah, yeah, I should go to bed. I’m stupid. Slap me with a big fish…er, or something!
Ah well, all writers suffer at some point…don’t they? Besides I thought it was the courteous thing to do to let ya’ll know the theme had changed. Actually I guess you would have figured that out the moment you saw it…hmm, I could just delete all this and go get some sleep. Nah. I’m good for another 10 mins or so.
Went to visit the family the weekend and met my nephew, baby George for the first time. He’s a real cute handsome chap, going to be a heart breaker and a head turner when he’s older. Glad I wrote Letter to Baby George now, now I’ve met the little chap I feel honoured to have written to him.
Getting Organised…well, kinda!
This week I’ll be knuckling under and penning something for the SPP which, sadly, I have missed out on this last week. Also I’ll be returning to Arcane Insane to find out what Janey and Mojo are up to. Also I need to spend some time reading, the emails keep coming in and I keep promising myself to take time and read…sigh….stupid life getting in the way!
Apologies for saying I would write more last week, headaches and eyes haven’t been my friend recently. Sigh. On the plus side I have a shiny new car, well new but old if you get my drift! And I start a new job this week too! Yay!
Happiest Day of the Year!
I heard on the news that Saturday 6th August had been voted the UK’s happiest day, with the hours of 6pm to 7pm as the happiest hours of the year! I didn’t really believe such silliness until we were on our way home from spending a wonderful afternoon with my family. We stopped at Corley Services on the motorway outside Birmingham, stretched out legs and gave the car (nicknamed Blurple by the way!) a drink of gas.
Right outside the entrance to the snacky shops we bumped into Graham Taylor, legendary England football team manager! Amazing! A few minutes later we met Ollie Murs who was busy trying to choose which sandwich to buy, though he was interrupted plenty of times by adoring fans! He was gracious and smiling, very nice chap who wished us a good trip! So our youngest, gushing and blubbering with admiration, had her photo taken with Ollie!
That’s about it for the moment. Hope you like the new theme. I’m not sure I like the white of the title, it seems a bit bland, wishy-washy to me, maybe it would better if it had some colour. Let me know if you think it sucks!
I shall leave you with this wonderful picture I took in my sister’s garden on Saturday. True words indeed.
