Well this is virtually my first post since updating my blog and a half written post waiting to be published.

What a nightmare decided to up-date blog by moving some of the side bar items to the pages tab.  All well and dandy then I don't know what happened but the whole of my home page has lines throughout the whole blog.  What a mess!

As I use Artisteer now after starting with blogger I have to export changes to blogger.  Artisteer doesn't keep widgets as they have been created in blogger.  Hence everytime I update I have to physically move each and every one to the correct order as I would have days of the week running through Followers etc etc.

Blow me after all these changes and putting things right it happens again!  This time I think to myself in for a pound in for a penny!  So I've updated my header too with a recent project.  Made it almost worthwhile having to fiddle with the widget listings!

Today because my C Drive is practically full less than 2 mbs free I have been transferring what I could to the D Drive.  Unfortunately it didn't make much difference to freeing up some space so not to be beat I started moving some programmes.

Two hours later but I've cracked it - moved programmes and contents - took a fair bit of faffing but all done now and I have freed up a massive 10.7 mbs - whoopy doup! - and out of the RED!!  Wish I could say the same about my bank balance!
