So this is it
27th May 2013
I’ve finally finished the new layout. I am please with the overall look of it and in particular the way it looks on my iPad but the responsiveness on the layout is pretty poor and I have no idea how it will be on your computer, so let me know if it’s bloody awful! One of these days I will actually sit down and code a layout that I am 100% happy with, but until I get some motivation to do that I’m afraid you are stuck with this.
I would love to sit down one day and read loads of coding tutorials and get back into web design but I now prefer the blogging side of things and I just need somewhere to blog. I have quite a few ideas on how I can my website look pretty but I have seriously lost interest in the coding side of things. I think I need to partner up with someone who can code. Maybe Tyrone when he starts his degree in IT and Multimedia Computing and learns to code!
I will try to work on the layout and improve it where I can so expect errors and stuff when you visit haha!!
My parents arrived back safely from their cruise around Greece, even though they were delayed 5 hours coming back. I was happy to have them back as the house has been lonely on my own. Tyrone came over to stay a couple of nights so I wasn’t on my own all the time. Plus, work kept me occupied and I regularly had my family on the phone, ringing up to check I was okay. I swear the fact that I lived in Liverpool on my own for 6 months never occurred to them. Ah we’ll, it’s nice to know that I have people who care about me.
On their travels around the Greek Islands, my parents stopped at Santorini. I’d love to go to Santorini because I’m a geographer and it’s a volcanic island. So, knowing that they would be visiting the island, I kindly asked my parents to bring me back some volcanic rock. They didn’t disappoint. I now have a beautiful piece of volcanic rock which I believe is gabbro and contains the mineral olivine (this is probably not the case, I’m useless at geology!). They also bought be back an ‘I love Greece’ pen and an adorable Christmas bauble with images of Greece on it. I know it’s nowhere near Christmas but I love this present. It kind of goes with the bauble Becky bought me for Christmas with Liverpool on it. I think this has started off a theme. I’m going to (attempt to) collect Christmas decorations from all over the world so that I can have a geography themed Christmas tree hehe.
This weekend there is a music festival taking place in our town. I wasn’t really planning on going but then we got free tickets because my brother designed the posters for the festival. It lasts for three days and today is the final day, although I’m not going today because I have some time off from work and I want to have a bit of time to myself.
Last weekend I went to Chester Zoo with Tyrone. Here are some pictures I took.
Edit: I’ve just realised the ‘Reply’ buttons in the comments section isn’t working. I’m not sure why so I’ve installed a plugin for the time being. It’s not great but I’m working on it.
