New Blog Design

Hi there!

Yessss I am still alive and well.
LOTS of things have been going on but all good things though!
If you count working your ass of in the garden and weeding like a mad woman as a good thing that is…

We took a small holiday and went away for a week. We went up to the north of Spain.
I had my birthday in that week and I got a new mobile phone as a present, complete surprise to me!
 Looking back I could have known that he already had something planned because he did not ask me even ONCE what I wanted for my birthday as he usually does like a million times…..

What do you think of my new blog design??
I have been working on it for some time now, practicing on my test blog and finding out how to get rid of the page border ( ! ) and how to make your own social media icons etc.
It took me forever but I learned a lot and HTML lingo does not scare me that much anymore!
Today I just put it out there, thinking that getting rid of the border was easy, if I just made a note on how I did it…… I remember I searched and searched for a solution and finally found out it was just a matter of clicking something off. 
But now that I tried to do that simple easy peasy thing again…. I can not find it!!

Still some stuff to work on!
I soooooohooo wish I was better at this technical side of blogging but in realty I spend hours finding out the simplest things, and then seem forget them…..
It does not stick with me for some reason and finding a tutorial that I actually can understand makes me very creative in coming up with searches for Google I tell ya!
And you know what! I am the same with my new phone.
 I got this cool sort of side bar with all my apps in it, it slides to the side and you can pull it out if you want. It has disappeared on me twice, and I just can not find how to put it back again!

Oh well this is it, I am happy with the overall blog design but I will be tweeking it over the next couple of weeks.

Have worked on some projects as well so they will show up soon!

For now I am gonna enjoy the nice weather, no garden work for me today!

Thank you all for you patience and if you are new here…

to my chaoctic life,  A-technical bloggy
but filled with random stuff on very unpredictable times


  1. hi Carol, happy belated birthday!
    I love the new header - it's very cool,eyecatching and snappy. your garden looks gorgeous - hope the goats have stayed out! one thing that is not for my preference is, that i find reading text rendered in the middle a bit more difficult to read than one that's to one side, but i know that it's a personal thing. i enjoy your blog a LOT and it's nice to see it evolving with such creative updates. i really like the stamps, and how they suggest a story of where you live and are from! by the sound of it, you gonna figure out all the html stuff and formating, it's the same confusing experience for me, until now i didn't even realize you can have a test blog to mess about on :) x

    1. Thank you so much Anikó! Clearly I am not happy with the border around the page bar! I need to get that fixed desperately! I am considering to start having the text from the left anyway so I will give it a go soon. Having a test blog takes a way the fear of trying new things and messing up your blog, and if you are anything like me, you´ll need one! My test blog looks better then this one at the moment!! :-)
