It’s been just work, work, work lately. Christmas is creeping up so quickly, I just don’t know where the time has gone this year.
A quick wrap up of what’s been happening:
WordPress 2.7 was finally released this week, and not a moment too soon. WP 2.7 is the best version yet, the admin is beautiful and the features are great.
We finally took a day off work (on an exceptionally cold but sunny day) and got to the zoo, something we’d been planning to do since October. It was all worth it when I got to see what I went for – the new lion cub. I could have just stood and watched him for hours!
Work has continued to be busy, which is obviously good from a credit crunch / recession point of view. I’m just a tad bit tired and need a break! However, come Friday I’ll be stopping work (well client work) for Christmas, and certainly can’t wait! Although I seem to be arranging to sort out so much stuff over Christmas that I’ll probably be busier than ever!
I won a competition the other week and got a premium WordPress template for free, so I need to get around to injecting my own personality into that, plus the 2.7 code (yes another job for Christmas). So I’ll be updating the design of this site soon.
Both Dave and I won a bit of cash off the BloggingTips.com forum competition, so we put our winnings together and put it towards a new Sigma 10-20mm camera lens. I’ve not had a chance to get any shots with it yet, however I hope to have a play next week and see what I can capture.
I’ve been eying up Sam’s iPhone with a major amount of jealousy! Frustratingly, I’ve got over a year left on my current contract (yes the one that had no improvement on it whatsoever!). I’m quite tempted to take on a second contract just to get the iPhone, and use that for business, then keep my other for personal for the time being until the contract runs out. But I do keep trying to tell myself to just wait!
And I’ve finally got Family Ski (We Ski) for the Wii, a bit of an early christmas present off Dave. It’s not as good as the real thing, but it’s good fun anyway. I’ve only spent about half an hour on it due to lack of time, but it’s quite surreal shussing down, round the trails and paths, avoiding the silly people standing having a chat on the slopes (it’s just like real life!).
However, hopefully I can take a long weekend here and there next year and get up to Scotland to do the real thing 😀
