I've spent a lot of time in the last week doing website related stuff, I think I've gone about as far as I can with that until I get some more feedback from the people I'm designing for, though there is still ongoing updating to deal with on the church website... I have heaps that I want to do with my own website, I currently have a number of pages for that under construction, but I know when I start work there it will be time consuming and I just don't think I can afford the time at the moment - clothes need to be washed and sorted, there are meals to cook, meetings to attend and people I need to see!

I've had a satisfactory sort of week so far, the weather has been mixed and a little damp most days, I went to Alison's on Monday afternoon and also bought some crafty bits and pieces in Birkenhead on the same trip. I had a music practice on Monday evening too, it was a lovely evening, outside the light was magical, and the world sparkled with vivid colours, inside the mood was relaxed, there were only a few of us there, and we are facing a few logistical difficulties over the next few months, but we worshipped and talked together, it was good to do that...

Yesterday I had a delivery from Asda in the morning and went round to see Kathryn in the afternoon. Ian had PCC in the evening, while I was at home for once! We watched Morse, the final episode where he dies... Debbi came back for a cup of tea after PCC, we chatted until late!

Today I have Little Fishes, and a prayer meeting later... but time just keeps running away from me... There's never quite enough time to do what I want, the necessary gets done, and I have found time to make a card and do website stuff, but my list of things waiting to be done is getting longer by the day... Still, half term is not too far away (week after next) and holidays are usually good catching up times because there are less meetings... and then after half term I am off to Italy with Mum - yay!. A week on Saturday we are all going over to Manchester to see "Cats" - which I'm looking forward to as well! Better go and do things now!!

Did you teach yourself web design or using a package or what. I am interested!

I taught myself, I started with the most basic html and have just picked up other things as I went along... I love to play with shape and colour and design, doing it with code is just the same as using paint or paper. The code I use is still quite basic but I'm pleased with the results...
See here or here for the two main websites I've made, there are three more under construction, one is nearly finished, just being proofed by the person I'm making it for..

I think anyone can learn to make websites quite easily if they're interested, though obviously if you're just interested in getting information on to the web it is probably easier and quicker to use a package. But I enjoy the process so...

They look so good. I am impressed. I hated fidling about with all those codes so I never really got my head around it. Would like to one day though. Did you have a guide or text that used that helped?

Ian knew quite a lot of html before I started and that was really helpful, I also found this site useful:
www.w3schools.com

Matthew, my nearly 15 year old son, can write much more complex code than me and is running his own website... if I want something really tricky I enlist his help!!!
