Burns & Bake Off

By | Blog | No Comments

Last night in Steve’s honour we had a Burns night. We did the full traditional thing complete with speeches in bad scotish accents and haggis. Was a good night. I was knackered though. I got up early and i jus aint used to it!

 I went round to see Angie and we baked some delicuious Mocha Squares. They were yummy.

I met up with Ruth for  a coffee before that too – She is yummy.

And i also saw Bishwop and Ruth again – great!

check me out!

So I’ve found a tutorial on how to work the CSS in wordpress themes and am now working on introducing one of my originals – it looks a mess but so far so good:

Things to do today:

  • Go See Ruth – Yay
  • See Angie
  • See Mom
  • Do more CSS

That is all for now.

grinnin

Yes today i find myself grining ear to ear becuase of a certain someone. Not quite ready to go public but needless to say the grin factor is high!

It was a good weekend. Friday eve my sis Angie picked me up and we wnet to the pub to see a friend do a Jazz set. Angie and I had a good ol natter. The first in a loooong time. It was ace even though it was an early night. The perils of parenthood for my dear Sis.

Sat I went to my folks for dinner. Had a nice meal with them and a good ol chat.

Sunday was the usual followed by the pub which was really quite good too. that certain source of grinage was present as were a bunch of other friends. I was forced into eating a bit of humble pie which was painful but also a very good thing. When i got home I watched the first 2 episodes of 24 season 6.

Jack is back!

Afterwards i started a new video graphics project. I’d been wanting to try something for a while and it clicked on how to do it while watching 24. The results so far were excellent.

Taday was spent sorting through all that and developing it further. However Orange are now threatenting to cut me off on my phone bill. The bastards  have still not sorted out their screw-up which is why i aint paid my bill. Then bulldog cut my broadband for the same reason. They too have still not sorted my bills! Argh.

But I’m still grinnin!

Today was a gooooood day! Partly cause last night was a very very good night. Those involved will know why. Even though today did start on a weird note. I woke up after having a weird dream sort og gone badish. I dreamt that i was batman and i was running with catwoman. At one point Catwoman was jumping through the air between a couple of buildings. She was aiming to grab onto a pole traversing the two buildings but she wasn’t gonna make it so I as batman swung down to try and save her.

As we flew she just missed the pole but she was grabing out with her hands and her long claw-like fingernails were tapping off the pole. I then woke up to the same sound which was the ivy outside my window tapping on the glass. It was very odd indeed. Any readings into this would be appreciated.

My afternoon was pretty dull – didnt really get much done. This eve I went and had dinner at Victoria & Richard’s place and James was there too. We had chicken and it was gorgeous. a very tasty meal!

So all in all a good day!

PHP and techie stuff

By | Techie, WordPress | No Comments

ok so I really have bitten off a little more than i can chew on this whole wordpress game. I’ve found a few tutorial sites that show you how to build your own wordpress themes (the layouts and style) but they are all very complicated. It makes me realise how limited my webskills are. It is all PHP scripting and such which i have bugger all experience in and its alot to take in.

 Implementing the styles from my old site is looking to me more difficult than i previously hoped however its good as this means i will be advancing my knowledge of it all. Watch the site for more developments!

I’m thinking that part of my lack of regular posting last year was due to the complexity of how i had to write stuff! – Hopefully this will all change now that i have this workin properly! – Yay

Had a nice day today. Mest some frioends this afternoon and had a giggle. Then went on to Meet my bro in law Andrew for his birthday drinks in the pub. It was cool An old friend of mine Simon was there. He’s a year younger than me but he is married with a daughter and another baby on the way. It reminded me that life is going rather quickly! Its weird!
