Happy New Year

Well, it’s 2009 around the world now, so happy new year to everyone 🙂

I can’t believe the christmas season is almost over! I feel like I’ve done nothing productive!! Well, I’ve had to reformat my computer and reinstall all of my software, so that has taken a little bit of time. About a month ago something happening, which I still don’t have a clue what, and on the Sunday evening I shut my computer down as normal, and Monday morning it took about 25 minutes to boot up and log in. Despite my best efforts, and even increasing the RAM by 1GB (that was already planned, regardless of login speed!), nothing changed, so I’ve done a complete format and fresh install, and everything is running along speedily! I’m about halfway through installing software so I should be ready for work on Monday.

I also twisted my ankle pretty badly last week on Friday (Boxing Day / St Stephen’s Day). I’ve spent most of the week with my ankle strapped up and me not being able to walk too far or do much at all. It’s been a painful few days, and even now, although I can walk normally, if I twist my ankle slightly it’s still very painful 🙁

I don’t seem to have cleared much off my to do list over the past fortnight! The time off has flown by, which is great as we’re both pretty relaxed, something I’ve not felt in a long time, but of course the anxiousness of pending work that I have to get done next week is weighing on my mind. However, for now I’ll just put it out of my head for another day or two!

I’ve also decided to start creating a post for my posts that I write elsewhere, as they’re usually technical or related to WordPress, and whilst I know I’ve got a page listing them, I’ll most likely remove that once I’ve created a post for each post elsewhere. It’s not to boost my post count, but more to ensure that even if I haven’t had time to write a post on this site, then the site doesn’t look too quiet, plus the posts may be of interest to regular subscribers anyway 🙂

Anyhow, I hope everyone’s celebrated the new year in style and let’s hope this year is a good ‘un 😉
