Moving today

I've just got ONE thing left to do before the big move. I'm trying to figure about how to move 'Rent my blog'. When I add the code, for some reason 'Rent my blog' appears in my new blog 3 times? arghhh

Its no biggie, I'll get it sorted later today. I'll also be visiting my blog buddies later to give you my new url.

Until then, why not pop over to my tenant Battlerocker. Good writing skills are an indicator of an organized mind, and I'm sure you'll find her in-depth posts as creative as I do.

Anyway, right now I have to go and hand in my resume for a job. I'm excited yet apprehensive about starting full time work again. I didn't sleep that well last night either thinking about it lol. I'll keep you updated.

ciao

Thursday Thirteen

Yesterday I was so bored I thought I'd collect some really odd Ebay listings. I know it's not about me personally, but perhaps you can see how crazy I am to collect such things? lol

Battlin'

Today I haven't stepped foot outside the house, is that bad or what?

This morning was cold and wet, so decided to stay in and tend to my new blog over at WordPress. The good news is it's almost done, so hopefully by Saturday everything will be in place. The bad news is I had a few problems with the coding from my imported blogger posts. Yeah, I know I said everything went smoothly and I thought it did, until I checked over it again today. For some reason there were like 4 photos imported per post and lots of unwanted divs and tags. I had my first bash at PHP too and it's not as bad as it looks. Hubby always tells me "Don't be afraid of PHP, it's easier than you think" and I've always thought "Yeah right!" lol

I've also been battling at BOTB (battle of the blogs) just waiting now to see if I've won. Thanks to those that voted for me, I've seen quite a few people on my travels today, and come across some great blogs!

I'll be doing the Thursday Thirteen tomorrow on THIS blog, but Saturdays Scavenger Hunt will be on my new blog, so TNChick I'll be asking you to change my link soon pwetty pwease :)


Edit - I won my battle! yeehaw

Imported!

As you know I'm switching to Wordpress, but yesterday I came across a problem. When I went to 'import' my posts and comments from blogger, it said I needed to enable the CURL extension. Uh oh! Luckily hubby came back from Germany today and it took him just a few mins to fix it for me, bless him.

I imported all my stuff, and it was really quite a pleasant experience. I was dubious about clicking that 'import' button lol but everything worked perfectly! Okay so it needs tweaking just a tad, like I need to add some transparent backgrounds to my photographs instead of salmon and I still need to add all my other gumf. Hopefully by the weekend (or before, fingers crossed) I'll be moving permanently.

I'm not going to be importing any further comments to WordPress so I'll just be copying the posts from here to there.. any comments that you make from here on will be lost in blogger space once I move. Don't let that stop you from commenting though, I'm still reading! lol

Now while you're here, I'd like you to look over to the left in my side-bar and meet my New Tenant BattleRocker at The Battle Rock Spot and if you can spare a few minutes please pop over and say hi. A landlord has to do what a landlord has to do, right? so anyone that decides to reside here for a while will be looked after like a tenant should be :)

Now I'm off to tinker with WordPress again..

A dandelion

Today was a gorgeous sunny day, in fact the warmest one so far this year. On days like today it always puts me in that summer-time mood so I went out to the garden and took a photo of a dandelion. Okay I know what you're thinking, a freakin' DANDELION?.. well that's cause we're moving house in a few weeks time so I didn't bother planting anything else, it'd be a waste of time. Before you suggest moving the plants when we move house, don't talk silly.. I'm not that fussy! lol

Anyways, here it is..
