I carry a notebook in my pocket all the time – a Pocket Squared Moleskine at the moment. The way I use it is pretty much along the lines of PigPogPDA, but mixed in with more general journaling.
Yesterday, I had an idea – mark some of the notes as I go, and copy the marked notes to a blog post later that day or the next day.
So, I’m actually writing this entry on paper, with a pen (Pelikan M600). If you’re reading it, I actually got around to typing it up and posting it on PigPog. I’ll make the title something very simple, including the date, which should help make the typing-up process something that can be done without much thought.
Ever since upgrading to Drupal 5.x, we’ve just stuck with the default theme, with just a colour tweak to make it ours. I finally decided to take a bit of time to look at other themes, and found one I quite liked – it’s called Channel Nine (no relation that I’m aware of to the Microsoft thing). I’ve made a few very small changes to the theme, mainly to change the colours.
The idea of a theme without the standard ‘masthead’ top section was quite appealing, and this one seems to cope nicely with different screen widths, too.
As usual, I’ve tried to check things, but I might have broken something – please comment here if you spot something I’ve missed.
It’s been a long time since I had a bloomin’ good old fashioned squee in my blog. Mainly because as soon as I began acting like a recycled teenager I shifted my rock star squee to its own special spot. That was fine until a huge great bolt of squee hit me when I didn’t expect it. Why didn’t I expect it? Well, he’s not a rock star, he doesn’t have huge great floofy hair, and when I first clapped eyes on him, I thought he was an offensive chauvinist pig.
Then I saw him reverse his Cortina down an alley with a bacon butty dangling out of his mouth. I was hit by the second raise of his eyebrows.
Yes, count me among the ranks of women around the world asking…
Gene Hunt… why does he drive me crazy?
A quick general catch-up on my progress… still ticking away nicely.
A gain, as I predicted. Bloody hormones! Seems it can’t be helped and it’s just part of the journey and the joys of being a woman. Ho-hum.
Back in business the following week, though, with 3lb off.
Succumbing to the charms of the season (i.e. taking an evening off to eat a shedload of chocolate) meant that I was grateful for any loss, so losing a pound and a half was fine and dandy with me.
So, that takes my total weight loss to – 9 stone 8 and a half pounds. Very very chuffed indeed.
Back with a more in-depth post next week, but for now… the journey continues.
I’ve never been so proud to be called a Loser before, but more about that in a minute.
25th February 2008
Weighing in after my first full week back on plan after my short break. It felt really good to be back in business, and despite having a stinking cold, and succumbing to the joys of M&S sandwiches, I felt I’d had a reasonable week. Mr Scale, bless his little LEDs, agreed. I lost six pounds, which took my overall weight loss to exactly 9 stone. The break had done exactly what I hoped it would, kickstarted my weight loss again and put me back on track. And getting another stone off meant I had only fallen behind by one month.
This spurred me on for the following week, which was a big celebration.
