I can hardly believe that yet another week has flown by since my last post.
During the past 7 days I have been camping in the bucolic countryside of East Sussex, had a birthday, several birthday parties, been indulgently over-indulged, got minor sunburn, put on 3 lbs, laughed till I thought I'd have a conniption fit, enjoyed the company of friends and generally had an ace time.
Of course, time and tide wait for no newly 'one year older' woman of a certain age and I have had to hit the ground running since my return on Monday.
Aside from the usual 'chores to do on the return from camping', ie trying to find the bottom of a seemingly bottomless email inbox, catching up with orders, placating a truculent Small Dog who is always grumpy for days post camping etc etc, there was also the rather pressing task of changing our website host, which we've been putting off for some time.
However the renewal is due on Friday so today we took the bull by the horns, put our shoulder to the wheel and bit the bullet in order to get it all sorted.
Miraculously, it has all gone much smoother than either of us could have dared hope. We are with a shiny new hosting company, with 24/7 tech support (which we have already tested and found to be exemplary), saving a small fortune in the process. We now have a wondrous 'back end' with a control panel which has more bells and whistles than you could shake a stick at.
Speaking of which, it's Hastings Jack-in-the-Green Festival on Monday Bank Holiday, when Morris Dancing troupes from around the country will converge on Hastings, along with over 30,000 bikers for the annual May Day Bike Run. Surprisingly the two events seem to co-exist alongside each other in a good-natured symbiotic relationship.
So yet another short working week in prospect.
