Have just a blether with the divine Nicola from Twickers on the dog and bone. Nicola is another northern girl down south - although she's been down south for more years than you can shake a stick at. We worked together in the halcyon days of IAP, and she was always trying to get me to walk up stairs (3 flights) instead of taking the lift - it never worked :) She once knicked my fags and lighter - again- another attempt a 'turning Tracy healthy' which failed miserable - but not for want of effort on her part. She tried so hard!

We've been laughing at women's matters - which I'm not going to go into in any detail - but suffice to say it involves hormones, night time temperature fluctuations, shouty issues and Oil of Evening Primrose. (It comes to us all Ladies...it's just a matter of time).

I was telling her about my ideas for a little business - and as soon as I mentioned it she said "Oooooh yes - I can just imagine you doing that". Seeing as the ideas for a little business are only in the embryonic stages - I'm not going to tell you about them on here - I'll wait until it's all a bit more certain.

What I can tell you is that the 'idea for a little business' involves a web site - and therefore web site design and build. That's not something I've ever done before - so today I had to buy a copy of 'Dreamweaver for Dummies'. I did think that it would only take me a day or so to knock up a half-decent website -  but having trawled through chapter one I now figure it may take more like a week or so. It's a bit more challenging that setting the Sky Plus to record Desperate Housewives....ho hum...but you know me - I'll have a bash at anything for a while - until I've either learned how to do it - or given up totally and called a little man in. I'll keep you posted (oh the joys of choosing HTML or CSS).

  1. My wife is actually the author of Dreamweaver for Dummies - so my opinion of the book is obviously a bit biased. But it's good to see that you're sticking with it through the early stages. Like learning anything new, it takes a while for the lessons to start making sense -- but eventually, the light comes on and you find yourself able to create without having to question your every mouse click.

    May you create a vibrant & successful business! (And in case you were wondering, your blog came up via a Google Alert - and no, it had nothing to do with the post downstream a bit about the public exhibition of willies.)


Beautiful New life
