Putting Christmas away

Alas, it is that time again, and we have to put the cat the decorations away for another year.

Phoebus and the decorations

But as the Stilton is all finished — not to mention the oatcakes and (this year’s new discovery) the fig relish — it is probably more than time to get ourselves back to everyday life.

Still, I have had time for a proper play in my sandbox and try out some new ideas for this website. There are several things on my webby wishlist, including making some areas easier for me to manage (the home page and the gallery, which are currently a bit fiddly and therefore seldom get updated) and adding some new complications (the facility for people to book and pay for classes, for instance). I have found a template I really like but, although I have planned out a step-by-step implementation, there are some things that will be most easily done after the basic shape is in place so I apologise in advance for anything and everything. Of course the process of simplification means short-term complication — doesn’t it always? — so in order to populate the new framework there is a bunch of stuff I will need to create and publish which may well duplicate what is already here. If you subscribe to updates by email or by feed reader and find yourself suddenly bombarded then do feel free to switch off for a while. I won’t be offended.

At least my grey silks are finally ready and waiting to greet me tomorrow morning.

    I stopped at “Stilton”. Good luck to whatever else that follow.

      Oh dear, you’ll have missed the fig relish then. It was delicious.

    Things always seem to need to get worse before they get better. 🙁

      Yes. Unfortunately, I think they forgot to write the rule that says things need to get better after they’ve got worse!

    Sigh. What a beautiful warp. It goes well with your cat.

    I like the new look, Cally, especially the way you have made use of colour in your own work as part of the page design.

      Thanks – hope it is not too garish! (Hard to tell on our dreadful over-saturated monitor.) I find it hard to commit to a colour scheme, so I thought a rainbow of colours would be the safest bet.
