Almost in the 21st century - not!

MsBlethers is joining the 21st century!! Hmmmm .... well, at least in the sense of trying to get more familiar and jazzy with the blog layout! This morning I managed to add a counter and was staggered to see a total of 20 'hits' flagged up throughout a 10 hour period - and, even more amazingly, ONLY 2 of those were attributable to me!! It absolutely struck me then what a fantastic place the cyber community can be ... creating the opportunity to 'meet' and learn from kindred spirits around the world who, pre-internet days, I may not have been blessed to encounter. My! How my internet use has matured since the heady days when I floated around Compuserve, cluminating in my 'union' with MrB!!!!! Och well, there's only so long you can get away with being a cyber floozie:) Enough! On with the new, improved, more mature (yeh yeh) me ...

My early morning success spurred me on to tackle widget incorporation to chart my somewhat embarrassing array of ongoing works in progress, aptly named 'Unfinished business'! Can I get the muckle thing to work?? Not a bit of it! Unless you deem a green bar, falsely boasting 100%, as technical success! Not to be deterred, this old burd is not giving up. However, I am acutely aware of my limitations and I reckon I'll be calling on blog AA/RAC assistance over the weekend from my knitting forumee computer whizz.... Jacquie ( http://bloggersparadise) ... HELP!!!!!

Good news to from DD1; she passed the theory paper for her driving test yesterday! Look out (hopefully!) if you are driving the roads of Cardiff in the very near future!

That made me laugh - the number of times I have sat down to do something spectacular to the blog. . . . and come away 2 hours late, dazed and confused !!! Hope you get it sorted though! Congrats to DD on the theory - now you just have to get up the courage to let her drive your car!!!!!!

Well done to your DD, hopefully she'll be fine on the driving bit of the test ;) Nice slouch socks too!!

lol there's more chance of me de-scrambling the blessed widget business than letting DD1 drive my car at the moment!! I am so pleased for her though as she does have some limited mobility due to her joints etc. However, maternal love will be expressed instead by buying her a wee runaround at the auctions and stumping up the insurance money:) And I'm STILL looking dazed, confused but unbeaten :)

My blog is basic and will stay that way until someone else changes it for me, I'm hoping that if I drop enough hints DD2 will sort it out but she seems too busy messing around on her Myspace page to care about poor old Mum's knitting drivel!
