I spent most of Saturday uploading things to my website: http://vivh.com. It's very time consuming loading up all my photos and things but I'm determined to keep going.

Sunday was a more productive day. I was out early to be at church for music group, there were more of us playing/singing than usual which was good, and I really enjoyed it. Church was really full yesterday morning after the previous week's snowy emptiness and it was a good service with an interesting sermon.

I made a vegetable lasagne at lunch time and David spent the afternoon at archery in Birkenhead. Ian and I popped round for a coffee with Mum mid afternoon before setting off for the evening service. The evening service was okay, though somehow the musical lead was a bit weak, I think it may have been a sound system issue, because there were problems with microphones during the sermon too. After the service I went out for a drink with Helen and Marie, which was nice, and there was still some Chinese left for me when I arrived nome too, even better!

The week ahead looks all set to be a pretty busy one, but that suits me!

OMG the website is BRILLIANT! It's beautiful. I love your songs.

Please please teach me how to have a website! I want to put my book on one, one day, but the things I set up are so ugly!! I started a Bravenet one and I think I started a better one on the laptop on geotopcities or something like that but the laptop's not good for that sort of thing so I didn't get very far! Wow, you've done a great job. Did it take ages?

It's really ringbark who you need to talk to about websites, both of us put our sites together using raw html, but he wrote a whole lot of stuff on paper for me to use as crib sheets when I started, and he checked the code for me on the first couple of pages. Once you've got the first page set up it's much easier to put together additional pages. For me putting up all the images has been really time consuming,because has involved scanning lots of old photos and then editing them down to the required size. If they were all digital to start with it would have been better! If you're interested Ian could probably send you an email telling you how to get started, and would be happy to help you out.

I love your songs.
I'm glad you like them, I've never shared them outside the family, so it took a bit of courage to put them there. It's very fiddly to produce a midi using the program I have, but I will persevere. There are more songs too, maybe I'll add them later!

You started the sites from scratch? OMG I just couldn't do that. I still can't even work out what html is really. Well, I kind of used to know about codes and stuff but that all sounds so tricky!

It'd be great to hear the songs, that's for sure!

It isn't that hard really, and you know lots of html code any way from lj, but I think the problem for you would simply be the time required to get things up and running. Once you've got the format for your page sorted it isn't much harder than using commercially available packages. All our boys know how to put a page together so it can't be that hard!!!

It'd be great to hear the songs, that's for sure!</i>
The midi for "He calls" is there already, though it sounds much bumpier than it does when I play it on the piano, I'll keep working on that but it's the best I can manage with the program I have at the moment!!
