Thank you all for you kind birthday wishes I have had a lovely day. I have spent a couple of hours at the computer this afternoon while the family was out giving me that lovely gift of a couple of hours peace and quiet which am sure any of you with or that have had small children will appreciate the value of.
I decided as its my birthday and obviously the start of my next round of challenges 50 things before 50 I would do a little housekeeping on my desk and in my blog.
First you may have noticed a slight colour change I really was not feeling the pink anymore so have gone lilac maybe each year on my birthday I will change colour unless when I finally upgrade the blog to my own name I find a new layout I really like.
Now I am sure most of you will have heard me mention when it is quiet at work I end up scribbling on bits of till roll, discarded receipts, anything handy until I can get home and get round to making a proper note. Well here is proof…
Each idea is scribbled on a memo and folded up and popped in the jar for a later date…
Then it was off for dinner and it seemed even the food knew it was my birthday as my pork crackled perfectly for a change…
Then of course came cake…
I realised my blogging schedule has a major flaw, having weekly round up on a Saturday was not working. Saturdays are a busy day for me with work and family and I really needed posts that could be prepared ahead of time so I have tweaked my schedule a little so let me fill you in.
- Monday Musings
Monday speaks for itself really reviews, interviews and challenge overviews
Tuesday now houses all my photos of days off in various places in one place Away Days, Flights of Fancy will be just that whatever thoughts take my mind hostage at any given time. A new feature will be Tasty Treats, I love cooking and eating out so this will be foodie posts either of my own cooking or restaurant reviews or just something tasty I have found.
These will alternate with the Udolpho posts and you will also get MsKatykins turn at reviewing if not on tuesday then at some point during the week.
- WIP Wednesday
No change for Wednesday
- Thoughts on thursday
Again no changes to Thursday
- Photo Friday
No change Friday
- So it’s Saturday
Saturday takes most of the subjects that sunday had before plus a new one Me And Mine which are posts about me, my family and more personal musings.
- Sometimes Sundays
Weekly round up will now take place on a sunday when I have more time plus most weeks there will be a bonus post where I shall either share a blog that I have really loved from the previous week or the new Fact Vs Fiction where I want to examine how world events or fiction can change our opinions or influence our writing.
I am planning some new headers for each day and to tidy up my about and novel pages aswell as updating a few others.
I am not going to set targets this week that will be resumed in the next weekly round up.
I have had a lovely birthday but chocolate overload means an early night 😀
