Introducing....

...my new fledgling website, here.

For the time being I am using free site hosting, hence the Google ads, I hope they are not too distracting. I'll probably upgrade to an ad-free paid version later and I want to add a links page of writers' resources in due course.

I've also bought a domain name and hopefully will be able to use it for this site soon...I think I know how to sort that out, but it is a bit scary so I need to take some technical advice before I fiddle with any settings.

It was interesting that when I first checked what domain names were available a few days ago, both .com and .co.uk were free. By the time I decided to register yesterday someone else had registered .com, no doubt having picked up on my search. But I've gone for .co.uk rather than pay extra to have .com transferred over to me by some sharks.

Three notable things:

1. We are all still unwell, especially son 1. Lots of coughing and little eating in this house at present.

2. I'm going to attempt to go into town this afternoon and brave the sales.

3. I need to get on with my OU work, as I have dropped well behind. A concerted effort is now needed!

I like the site. It's very clean. I have the adblocker plug-in for firefox so I saw no ads.

Cathy, sorry to hear you're all still poorly: how utterly miserable. I got back to Bangkok yesterday and have swollen glands the size of tennis balls in my neck, so I too am feeling a bit off colour.

I love the website and hope you all recover soon.

The new site looks so professional. Great colour scheme too and lovely graphics and buttons. Feels calming, like I'd want to stop for a while!
Hope you are feeling better today.

I'm glad the website meets with approval. I know nothing about website design so surprised myself there!
