The move is on…

So I’m going to move to my own domain.  I have the server space, version 2.7 of WordPress is installed (thanks Paul!). So does anyone have any tips, good plugins or themes they’d like to share with me?

Let me know what you’ve tried and tested, it may just save my marriage ;)  I can just see Paul’s face if I keep asking him to install plugin’s because ‘I fancy trying it’ – LOL!

Hopefully I’ll have the move complete by next week, so I’ll let you all know how it goes.

Making your own Christmas Wreath

I’ve just been to the garden centre to pick up a wreath for the front door.  Now we’re on bit of a budget this year, but I didn’t want a Holly wreath – I *always* manage to hurt myself on them!.

The garden centre had some really nice fir wreaths, with cinnamon sticks and dried oranges, ribbon etc and they were £35, a little on the expensive side.  Then I noticed the ‘blank’ fir wreaths that were £10 and thought, well I have ribbon and baubles at home.  So I bought that one.


I decided that as I’ve gotten a little obsessed with Modern Country that I’d do a ‘nordic’ inspired wreath.


I rummaged around in the Christmas wrapping bag and in the decorations left over from the tree, got some garden wire from the shed and got crafty.


First up the ribbon.  I tied a basic bow and then attached it with the garden wire to the wreath


Then I added bells and a white wood reindeer


Popped it on the front door and it doesn’t look that bad.  I might add some silver baubles on it tomorrow as well, but that’s the joy I can change the colours and add what I like, as many times as I like and I’ve saved £25!
