Well, it’s been nearly a month since I last updated the website. It’s been a busy month and I haven’t been idle, but things have just kinda taken on a life of their own. First, (as you’ll see a few posts below), the WordPress theme I was using well and truly broke and I had to replace it with a temporary theme. I wasn’t happy with any of the themes I looked at, (and you can spend an awful lot of time looking…), so in the end I decided to do it myself. That’s easier said than done, even though I hand-coded the HTML on my old, pre-FYS website, so there was a learning curve to be climbed. In the end, I’ve built the site using the Genesis framework and the results can be seen before your very eyes and, (I hope) speak for themselves. Some of the simplest things turned out to be the most complicated, (such as getting the “Helping you to get your music made” in the header to be remotely legible). I did keep the YouTube videos going, (despite the distractions below), and I’ll be posting them here a.s.a.p.
Secondly, real life intervened to demand all of my time, in that we’ve had my son’s bedroom refitted and I have been variously moving electric sockets, lifting carpets, dismantling old furniture and wall papering at all hours of the day and night. As I type this, all my work is done, bar wiring his XBox back together and putting up some shelves, so I should have some free time soon.
And finally, the gentlemen in the image above have needed my support, (and that of the aforementioned son). We were there to witness Manchester City overcome the odds, Aston Villa’s back 9 and West Ham’s best efforts to be crowned Premier League champions. But now that’s all a (fond) memory and it’s back to business. onwards and upwards!
