A Molehill

I can scarce believe it but the sock yarn mountain is already reduced to a molehill – just three balls left. Mr L is having three and I have five for myself, the remainder has gone to new homes. I confess that I have already bid on two more packages of sock yarn from the same dealer. This time I have bid lower and will only buy if successful at a very low price. I confess that I feel a little twitchy at having just eight balls of sock yarn to last me half a year.

Not much to report today – I have been doing some proper cleaning and tidying and Mr L has completed the porch flooring with a coat of sealer. It looks grand.

Aside from selling yarn to folks at the door and preparing a meal, I have done little other than the cleaning ting and a little research on WordPress themes. I am still toying with the idea of moving Two Snails back to a WordPress blog.  I think that I have found the right look and feel and have implemented it here at Woolgathering for me to play about with it for a while. I like it here. I think it will stay. If you are reading this on the site rather than in a feed reader, I’d appreciate your comments on the new look and feel. I’m considering “branding” by stylising the featured images one way for this site and another for Two Snails.

It will take  a bit of homework to figure out how to migrate from Koken to WordPress. It won’t happen soon, as Mr L is away to Manchester on Monday morning’s plane.

December Reflections 4: Red

Nature is red in tooth and claw and nobody knows this better than a person that shares their life with cats… At 4 am today there was a thud, followed closely by another thud, and another. It sounded curiously like a rather fat cat pouncing on something. “Has Dusty brought some prey in?” The Crooked Man went to investigate. Dusty had indeed brought some prey in and when he saw his dad, he let goContinue readingDecember Reflections 4: Red

In a pickle

Shops are now open to sell anything on their shelves and we are no longer restricted to purchasing whatever some government official has deemed to be “essential”. We popped out to The Shed yesterday as I needed some parcel tape to package up some things that I need to be posting off. We had to hunt, it wasn’t in the Stationery section, but we eventually found it in the DIY area. It’s not of greatContinue readingIn a pickle

    I like the look of this. Nice and clean.

      Me likee too. I’m actually testing it out for Two Snails – I’m struggling with Koken and threatening to turn it over to WP. However, it is so very smart and seemingly well-behaved, I may well keep it here. I’ll need to give the two sites a different look and feel or I shan’t know where I am. The problem is the free theme is not all that configurable and that means considering paying for the full one. It’s not a one-off either, but annual.
