Hello B&Q if you're reading this!

Should I be concerned that B&Q have a new paint, with my name that's very close to the colour I painted my bathroom (mmm Jazzberry)

Thanks to Charlotte for spotting this...

Cupcake cards are still in this year!

Thank you everyone for my lovely cards, looking forward to some cocktails and nibbles later, but first CSI and breakfast (always a winning combo)

Also, being wished happy birthday by my search engine is both lovely and creepy...

Watching the crowd

I'm in proper 'Blues Widow' mode tonight, in a pub in Newcastle under Lyme, which has excellent beer and a bookshelf (I'm reading Bill Bryson Down Under and drinking Timothy Taylor pub landlord in case you were wondering) - but I'm also paying attention, not to Pete, its not like it's the first time I've heard 'Salvation' - but I'm paying attention to everyone else, people are nodding their heads, tapping their feet, swaying slightly to him playing... the audience is enjoying themselves and the applause is genuine, which is easily my favourite sounds of the night...

Blog Upgrade Complete

So the task I started a few weeks ago is finally complete - I've migrated my domain name over to the ever trusty Vidahost - (where SixFourOne & 44Pistol are both dealt with) - and you'll noticed I've done away (finally) with the iframes / shell and everything is under the domain name I had as a 16th birthday present.

It should save a little bit of money - not actually paying for monthly hosting I don't use, and tidy up things a little. I kept thinking it was a useful thing to have, and then not using it - since DropBox / Picasa / Pinterest / Evernote where much more useful for keeping a track of everything I had around. Annoyingly, I have to phone the states to cancel my hosting account - but hopefully that shouldn't be too tricky, it can't be any more problematic then trying to deal with BT...

I've messed around with the visual settings on Blogger and I've got something I like, bright lovely colours and it does make it very nice and easy to update the colour schemes etc. Hopefully I should have updated the settings on Twitterfeed correctly so this should bounce to Twitter and Facebook with no problems either. It might even encourage me to write a little more too.

There's very little else - I've been on holiday all week, so I've been playing masses of Anno 2070, doing tiny bite sized bits of housework and shopping and planning for my birthday party on Sunday and a holiday to Augsburg - oh, and we're starting to plan / book our Big trip to New Orleans and the Deep South of the USA next year! Yeah for Travel!!

Dear BBC...

..please let your weather report be right, I'd like a sunny birthday please =D

Man/Woman/Entity #1

Further proof, as if needed, that my husband and I are pretty much the same person

We are, however, rather enjoying having identical new phones (Galaxy SII's - his black, mine white) and I think Pete is just glad to have a smart phone that's actually smart...

It's only spitting...

At the stafford shakespear festival....

It was called off in the end - but you can't fault the valiant efforts of the cast...

Worm's world upgrade..

I've realised my blog looked a little unloved, which isn't fair, because having read though 4 years worth of it yesterday I'd forgotten how much I enjoyed posting in it.

With that in mind, and the fact that I've clearly tried to make up for the fact that I've been to busy to write things by filling it with pretty pictures I've been playing around with the dynamic templates on blogger - both on here and on NomBooks

I give you Worm's World v7.2 - What do you think?
