Almost Over the Hill

No, this isn’t a blog about me admitting I’m a 49 year old man in the body of an over-weight 21 year old, but actually annoucning that the Baby-Green website is so close to being launched with the new theme I can taste it.

I’ve just finished coding the last of the pages, after converting all of the videos to their new format which will hopefully mean that anyone can see them without issues of getting sound, but no video or such. I would have the site moved to the live location so that you can all see it properly now, however I’m uploading the videos to the website, and according to WinSCP the software I use for connecting to the website, that’ll be 2 hours time, and being that the time is already 9:56 PM, I’m amazed Nicky is still awake now to be honest, so the website may have to be published tomorrow or Wednesday night instead.

For those of you with common sense however, you will see that the new site dwoesn’t actually have anything new just yet, but just all of the old stuff – There’s a reason. Nicky has asked me to get the site out now with all of the old stuff so that you can all have a chance to enjoy looking over it all now using the new site before I dazzle you all with new shinny pictures etc, but they will be coming soon trust me – Before the new one is here (this assumes it doesn’t come tomorrow or something!!)

Work has been really busy for me recently, and I’ve found myself playing with my server that I’m finally (after a year) getting round to doing something with. I’m really looking forward to having it all racked and running long-term rather than in it’s current state.

Work has commenced on Madison’s new bedroom. I started the weekend just passed, and thus far have sanded 1 1/2 walls as they all really need doing, sanded the door, door frame and window frame, and have given the window frame the first coat of paint, so this coming weekend, I will finish the window frame, finish sanding all of the walls, and then start the painting.

As Nicky said in her blog yesterday, my dad and Angie had Madison last night, so we went out just the two of us for the first time in a long time, and probably the last time in a long time too. Went to GBK (Gormet Burger Kitchen) and then to the cinema afterwards to see Rendition. I really liked Rendition – Can’t really say the same for GBK….What kind of burger place doesn’t have Jalepeno’s and tells me that neither the Spicy Satay sauce or the Chilli sauce are very hot – So where the hell is the hot option then? Final moan about them….£2.95 for a portion of chips!! Cheeky! Otherwise a very good night. I’m off to play with some Group Policy Settings now, so night night, and see you all soon.
