Site launches

Phew, It’s been a busy week, but I’m proud to say that I’ve managed to go live with two sites in the last seven days.

It’s taken a while, but the site for Bill’s sister Mary just launched a mere five minutes ago and earlier this week the site I’ve been working on for the furniture designer Michael Ballacchino went live after a slight hitch involving a lack of PHP being installed on his server. Gah!

maryleslie.com

ballacchinodesign.com (a collaboration with Bill, we’re getting a nice new bed in exchange for this one! yay!)

Hoorah!

We went out to Hard Labour Creek to see Mary and Hank this afternoon (I drove!) and go through the site with them. Genghis and Quince came along too and had a great time, although Genghis is so bad and needed careful supervision around their cats. He hates them he does.

Mary and Hank now have two goats as an addition to their growing menagerie of dogs, kittens and horses. Billy and Bob are from a petting zoo and are very friendly, though I didn’t want to get too close to their horns when they were in a butting mood.

Oh, actually, I had a hand in the coding for the BrightHouse Live site too so I guess technically that’s three sites up this week.

No wonder I’m tired and ready for bed.

My freelance illustration work mysteriously evaporated about three quarters of the way through and I’m still waiting for someone to actually tell me what’s going on there. Bah humbug. However, on the positive side, at least this means that when I go in to get my wisdom teeth extracted on Wednesday I haven’t got any pressing work to be worrying about while I’m sat in bed, eating my ice cream, and cursing my, by then missing, bloody teeth to high heaven.

    oh good, I’m glad they worked on dial up, I was wondering about that but wasn’t able to test them myself. Thanks for letting me know.

    I’m not so convinced that the goats were cute, they like to headbutt, that’s not nice. I didn’t take my camera down with us that time, but I’ll try to remember in future.

    The kittens are still very young, there are three of them. Ponygirl, Gracie and I don’t remember the third’s name. They live down in the stable barn and seem to be having a great time learning to be mousers. Now, they were cute. I couldn’t go too near though for fear of getting the sneezes. Ponygirl got her name because she has the same pattern and colouring as one of Mary’s horses.

    They also have two fully grown cats they’ve had for ages. One of whom had an encounter with Genghis while we were there. We just heard sounds of a commotion and a cat wailing. We all raced outside to find Genghis frantic over Spook, who had leapt up hign on to a fence and was a spikey grey ball of angry cat fluff.

    She got put upstairs out of the way, but later Genghis got adventurous and went exploring. Bad dog. Again we heard him tearing after her, but this time she just disappeared and we couldn’t find her. I hope she reappeared safe and sound once we’d left.

    When we got home we noticed that Spook hadn’t exactly been submissive and run away from our naughty dog. He had big scratches on his chest and muzzle. Hope that teaches him a lesson.
