"You hear laughter breaking through, it makes you want to fart. You’re heading for a breakdown, better pull yourself apart. " - John Cooper Clarke

From quiet homes and new beginnings…

We had snow at the end of last week and even more on Friday night. The blizzard on Sunday kept us indoors as there was so much snow falling that taking photos would have meant risking our cameras, not to mention the freezing temperatures. Tatiana has “borrowed” my gloves and welly boots which is a pain in the arse, to say the least, but the weather conditions were in my favour as it meant keeping the Twat indoors so as to help me set my blog up on WordPress.

The move has been a longed-for project, but I was afraid of losing all my comments at Haloscan. It appears that they have all managed to move over, including 20,000 triplicates or so, but I think that Andy has managed a good job – we just need the odd tweak here and there. Andy Ramblings has been gracious enough to host this on his server and add his extensive IT knowledge when Andy was up against a wall, so I thank them both.

I’m pleased with the result and extremely annoyed with Haloscan that this ever had to happen at all, but there you go. I’m not the only one to be moving over here as a result of Haloscan selling to JS-Kit, and it will take me a while to learn this new template which is far more complicated than Blogger, but I will, one day, manage my entire site all by my very self.

Well, both Andys hope so.

And so here I am, finally. I’m trying to get rid of 1000 comments a day and am doing quite well so far, although I shall probably be unemployable due to RSI.

Hoping that none of you are stuck in the Eurotunnel or on a Eurostar and that you all have lovely holidays. I shall continue my job-search after the last interview sunk, as I guessed, try and brave the weather and get 3 christmas presents and spend the holiday as a couch-potato.

It’s almost certain that I shall blog, too.

Happy holidays 🙂
