White Christmas

The news on the radio this morning says that we are (almost) guaranteed a white Christmas for 2010. I’m in two minds if this is a good thing or a bad thing.

As a parent of an excitable 4 year old it’s great. I can’t think of many things better than making snowmen with my family. I can’t wait to go sledging!

The adult in me says bar humbug, it’s cold, it’s wet and it’s cold. Plus my Amazon deliveries are taking much longer than usual. I don’t like it! It was -15C here last week and that’s as cold as my freezer. Global warming has a lot to live up to I tell you. The roads become death traps and my local council had deemed virtually every road I use as a non-priority, i.e. no need to grit. Despite all this I still have to go to work (although many colleagues who live closer think they don’t have to!)

In general I’m much more a summer person than a winter person. I need to see if I still have enough points to emigrate to Oz!


SEO and websites

I just knocked up a website for my wifes fused glass business she’s starting. http://catalystglass.co.uk it’s a fairly simple site but i’m diving into the wonders of search engine optimisation. I’ve always known that this existed, but in the past outsourced this type of thing. I’m learning though that the complexities of how pagerank works is actual quite ingenious! No wonder search is such big business…
