Burnt Orange

Friday, September 9th, 2005

It’s been a busy week, but I’ve finally managed to get my personal built theme finished. I’m calling it “Burnt Orange”. Finally I can bid goodbye to the default look… The theme was based around a similar layout to the original default, however I have significantly rewritten the code to the main index page, and […]

New Design Nearly Finished

Sunday, September 4th, 2005

I’ve had quite a productive weekend, in spite of the heat. We went to buy some parquet flooring for the baby’s room, and I’ll be taking some time off in the week to fit it with a friend. I managed to get most of the housework done Saturday, so today has been relaxed. Friends came […]

Gran’s 5 Questions via a Knee

Saturday, August 20th, 2005

I believe this game was invented by Gran’s on Bran. I found it on Knee. Usually a blog about having complex knee surgery, it’s also part of the Blog Explosion “community” and as such gets drawn into these blog trends as do I. But why not, it’s fun! Rules If you want to participate, leave […]

Chain Answers

Monday, August 15th, 2005

I found this on Isn’t it a strange world we live in. It’s a list of things to write about someone who comments on your blog. Since Tina took the time to answer for me, I’m posting her answers (in italics) and the same challenge goes out to anyone else who comments on this post. […]
