please can I echo Brodie's/John's excellent request for all lurkers to come and say "hello" this week?
In particular, if you have moved your blog from blogspot to typepad can you leave me a comment? Can I make the move without losing my archives and current posts/comments?
I was helped to set up another blog today - on typepad, and I was converted.
It seems so easy - no html editing; merely click the boxes! A friend had given his blog a lovely Christmas feel some weeks back and I was so impressed at the blog's decoration, then I saw for myself today that on typepad it's simple to switch the template (my admiration was genuine at the time, S!)
It's been a day of contrasts - pastoral work in the morning, appointment with Inland Revenue tax officer in the afternoon (yes, it's that avoid-the-fine-time again) and haircut at lunchtime. Came out with smooth supershiny straightened, curled under hair. Not me at all. Apparently it's a very trendy style but I feel a bit like Coleen Nolan circ19?? Found a picture to show you. My haircut feels as if it's the one on the far left:
Feeling very annoyed by some news this week too - as usual, Christmas and New Year are quiet on the controversial news front and then it all comes out in one week.
* Bush :::::feel anger rising:::::::20,000 more men and women to Baghdad. Nice one.
* Ruth Kelly - betraying Labour's roots - paying for education in my eyes goes against the grain if you are a government minister. I have noted some comments in the blogosphere about her right as a parent but I feel in very strong agreement with the letter writer to one broadsheet who said this on Wednesday:
Ruth Kelly would have been correct to exercise her right as a parent to send her child to a private school had she not pocketed a ministerial salary and trumpeted the excellence of the state system of education for which she had responsibility.
I shall leave you with a question: in what year was the picture of the Nolans taken? Post your answer in the comments (lurkers, you too can join in with this simple quiz!)
