Three Week Update!

Its been three weeks since I last blogged!!?? Whats going on!!!??? Lol!

For a start I’ve been back from holiday for just over a week now, I was going to post before leaving, but to be honest on the day it was too hectic that I just didn’t have any time to post!

My Flickr photos are up for viewing on Flickr and from the photo section!

The holiday, like last years was a week in Jersey. The ferry left Weymouth at 10am on Sunday 29th June, and arrived back in Weymouth at 23:45 on Sunday 6th July, seven hours late!

This year we drove down the night before and slept (read: closed eyes and pretended to sleep!) in a lay-by outside Weymouth and drove down to the harbour in the morning.

The holiday went fast! This year, instead of going around visiting loads of attractions we spent most of our time on a beach! But we did visit the Lavender Farm again!

Friday evening and during the later part of Saturday the wind picked up! On Sunday, after we had packed up the car and ready to leave, we were told that the ferry had been delayed for six hours and would not be due in until 18:20.

We spent the rest of the day driving around the north coast of Jersey stopping at some the beaches and looking at the rough seas! I also took that opportunity to fill the car’s tank up.

We found a garage that was selling petrol for 89.99 pence a litre. I picked up the pump and it read 99.99 pence a litre. When I went in to pay there was 10% off the price of petrol!
I only managed to put 25.53 litres in, but it only cost me £22.95!

We got to the ferry terminal for six, and the ferry did not turn up until seven.

I think we didn’t set off for Guernsey until about half past seven. And boy was it rough! We was going slow because of the sea, and nothing was open! At times all you could see out of the windows was the sea on one side, and the sky on the other!

During that leg of the journey the duty free shop was only open for five minutes before we got to Guernsey for people departing at Guernsey.
We stayed in Guernsey harbour for an hour to let the seas die down a bit. We left at half past nine.

We brought our stuff from the duty free shop as soon as it was open. We didn’t really have any time to look around as we were all holding onto the shelving just to stay upright!

I spent about an hour up on deck facing the way we had just come trying to settle my stomach and not be sick. It was quite interesting watching the horizon, it would raise up and the sink down, and at the same time it would be moving diagonally first sloping off to the right, and then the left.

After five minutes of me going back inside I filled up one and a half sick bags!

We docked in Weymouth at about 23:45. We found the lay-by we slept in the week before and attempted to sleep!
We set off in the morning at about six and got home about half past eight!

Slowdown!

For some strange reason the past month has been a bit of a slowdown time for me, I don’t know what it is, but I just cant seem to be able to get into anything, or do anything!

Take this blog as an example, the last time I posted was the 4th of February, two weeks since the post before.

In those three weeks I have done practically nothing, even though I have added a couple to plugins to my blog, but that’s just about it.

Linux Links is at a stand still.

The only things I do do regularly is feel tired, and work!

And its valentines this week, and I haven’t got my girlfriend anything

I’ve got this week off work, so its a good time to recharge my batteries, and build my computer!

Hopefully I’ll be back to my ways next week

Till next time, if I don’t fall asleep!

I’ve just got over a cold or the flu!

I woke up Friday morning afternoon at about 12:30, and I had a slight headache!

I made myself some eggybread for breakfast lunch
I then went back to sleep for another half an hour and woke up still with my headache.

I went out shopping with my girlfriend to asda and then the mall, and I just couldn’t stop shaking

I had an early night that night, honest, well nearly midnight is early! Lol!

I woke up this morning with a slight headache, but i wasn’t as bad as last nights, and I’ve had this headache all day now!

I’ve been on my computer all day, but I haven’t managed to make any of my planned updates to my website!
But I have added the SRG Clean Archives plugin to my blog.
I’m just going to post this entry and make sure that the changes I made to the plugin work before I let it loose!

Till next time
Stay well!

Edit: It works!

Getting ready for nights! Part 2

Right then, 24 hours on from my last post, bar an hour! And I have now been awake all night.

I went to sleep at 4:30pm ish, and I think I managed at least four to five hours sleep
I have now been up since 10:00pm yesterday, Saturday, is it really Sunday already!?

One side effect that I have had with getting up at 4:00am is that I have been hungry all day.
I had a Chinese when I woke up at 10:00pm and all night, or should it really be morning, my stomach has been rumbling!

Lets just hope that I can manage to sleep tomorrow, damn today!

Ill post again sometime today/tomorrow, which everyone comes first, cause I’m slightly tired and now very confused about dates!

Till then, sleep well!

15 Minutes before bedtime!

I’ve been working on my website all day, and I have managed to almost finish three out of my list of seven things to work on my website.

If any of you were lucky enough to be visiting my website more than five minutes ago then you would of seen “(new)” at the end of the title of every web page. That is because I have replaced the PHP classes I have used to create the site layout with three simple includes. There is only one part left to go and that is the blog, but thats next!

The next two changes are on the homepage.
One, I have got rid of the “Whats New” section.
And two, I have replaced my RSSread PHP program with some PHP to include the latest blog entries straight from the database!

I’ll post more details about changes as and when I complete them!
Till next time, see you!

Five minutes left till bedtime now, and the subscriptions plugin is working, but it sends an email even if I edit a post!
