The 13th November

This post is for joe. For a long time joe has been making a website about his days, and he tries lots of different ways of doing updates quickly and easily. His university project was based around the idea of getting pictures onto a website really quickly and easily. I have been trying to convince him for a while to convert to something like WordPress for making his site, but he has resisted because it doesn’t actually make things much easier.

Then I discovered a flickr plugin for wordpress. This makes the updating process really simple. You use the flickr uploader, which sends all your pictures to flickr and resizes them for you. Then you just go into wordpress and you pull in your flickr pictures from a list of thumbnails. Brilliant!

Here is an example of how easy it is to use:

The midwife came and did a “heel prick”. That means they take blood to do tests. Lots of screaming.

Last Christmas Tim bought me a Sufjan Stevens CD called Chrismas songs. I didn’t listen to it much last year, so I am copying it ready for this Christmas. It comes in this box with a songbook and stickers!

Which gives me some time to play the guitar.

That was so easy!

Working

Well that has to be the longest time I have gone without updating the site. I really don’t have much to say either. I have been working a lot and not much else. I would like to have more stuff to update with but I dont right now. There are some pictures on my camera so I’ll have a look at them soon. Also playing the guitar a lot at the moment which is really fun. Some of that might end up on here at some point. Don’t hold your breath though.
