I’m still not totally on board with the new WordPress layout. I think long term it’ll turn out to be handy, but at the moment I’m still getting used to it.

I’m also still thinking about what to read for this year’s Once Upon a Time Challenge. Carl’s deadline for participating isn’t til Midsummer’s Eve, so i have a bit of time left, and a fair few books I think’ll fit sitting on the “I really should start reading” pile. But I’ve also almost finished two other books, final few chapters yet I can’t seem to get motivated enough to pick them up, which is surprising, as one[1] is very very good.

As you can see I’ve changed the theme, but I’m not sure if it’ll stay for long. I may see about altering the header image. Not hugely, but a tad. We’ll see.

Anything else? Erm… not really so I’m off now.


  1. The Assassination of Jesse James by the coward Robert Ford

    I kind of like it. It is different but I like the look. I'm glad you're thinking of participating in the challenge. You are right, there is certainly plenty of time to get involved with it not ending until June 21st.

    I like it- kind of medieval. Does this mean you're back?

    I have a few books in mind for it Carl, Graham Joyce's The Tooth Fairy, one by Holly Black, another by Margo Lanagan… so many to chose from.

    Back with less than a bang red :)

    I was in Rome the weekend before last. It was so nice and warm, even if it did manage to rain on me. Nothing compared to over here though. April showers *100

    Yeah, I do like this look. At least the idea of it as I know you aren't sure. But I think it is a great start.

    not to grumble, but i prefered the other one…

    i felt, i can't really say why, that i reflected your personality better. it was open. it felt open. and it was light.

    i'm not saying you can't be serious, but your posts are often very light and airy. and witty.

    and it looked fresh, and your posts are like that too.

    this layout is very textured and studious and … serious and all. i'd imagine one to write something deep or well-crafted or serious on this…

    but yeah, its mostly the feeling of lightness and openness and airyness that i felt complimented your blogging, whereas as this feels slightly cramped and heavy.

    it won't stop me from coming over! and who knows – i may love it before long!!! :D

    sorry – i meant to say "it reflected your personality really well"…

    You mean I don't come across as studious? and serious? Hmmmm.
