Well this week has been full of poorly babies. Both babies have had a course of antibiotics, soaring temperatures and been pretty darn poorly so it’s been a bit of a trying week at times. Nonetheless there were some good times. In fact I couldn’t narrow down my pick of the week to just one thing so I have cheated and allowed myself two.
Firstly I just have to mention my shiny new website. Like many an ICT GCSE was compulsory at school, I took it and I think I got B but I can’t say that stood me in good stead for life, using excel perhaps, but building a website not so much. To be fair when I did my GCSES the Internet wasn’t quite the lifeline it is now, we still had ‘dial up’ to get online and you couldn’t use the phone and the Internet at the same time. My gosh our kiddies will have no idea! So going ‘self hosted’ was something that filled me with dread. My blog would be offline whilst I navigated my way round WordPress.org uploaded themes, redisgned them and what if I couldn’t do it? It was, all in all a bit of mission, it took just under a week to release my domain name and transfer it to my new hosts – a couple of weeks ago I wouldn’t of even have known what that sentence meant. Then came the dreaded transferring the blog – I did require considerable help from the WordPress support team but after about 48 hours, their help and my own faffing about, I had a new fancy pants website for my blog, and I love it.
Secondly I can’t not mention this, Good Friday – how bloody lovely was it. The sun was out, the sunnies were on and the bubbles started to flow. My good mummy friend and I hit the pub garden all by ourselves, no babies and sat quietly, uninterrupted OUTSIDE with an ongoing supply of bubbly. Oh. My. God it was heavenly. It was great blooming Friday as far as I was concerned. The simple things ey. I did however come home to a poorly baby with a temp of 39.9 so came back to reality with a crash.
