Just when you thought Cen's Loft was gone and finished....and you were safe....it's back. I finally remembered how to do a blog post. How sad is that? It's amazing how quickly we forget skills if we don't use them.... is that a me thing, or worse still, is it an age thing? It'll take me a while to get back in the swing but bear with me in my struggle and hopefully we will have some fun as well as screams on the journey.
I have to admit that if remembering how to post on Blogger was a challenge, then my wonderful idea of trying to update Cen's Loft was a task too far. As usual it seemed such a good idea...at the time. I had some wonderful design thoughts that would result in a stunning blog makeover, tasteful, elegant and chic. No, stop laughing....my idea was chic, honestly it was. Ideas however are one thing, putting them into practice is a whole different kettle of fish, as I was to find out. I got everything organised and ready. I very thoroughly checked and double checked what I was going to do, a bit like a pre-rocket launch. All systems ready to go........fire!!!
To be truthfully I was right and I was pretty stunned when I saw what I had done but not quite in the way I had intended to be. Let's just say I ended up being really grateful that Blogger had the facility to let me back up my template before the attempt! The restore of the old template was performed faster than fast by a very panic stricken and red faced me. It wasn't just a matter of tweaking things to make it work. It was so bad that even if I tipped my head sideways and screwed up my eyes and sort of squinted at it...it still didn't look like a blog page. More like a Picasso on a bad day.
It was then I realised blog design never would be one of my talents and actually I was more a blog wrecker. So, feeling rather stupid I once again I gave up and put my return to blogging on the back burner.
All was not lost though, not long afterwards my luck changed and I won a blog template and installation from the lovely Louise of Louise Franks Blog Designs. Cen's Loft had a reprieve and was saved from my strange and wonderful methods of blog design. I left that it in Louise's capable hands to work her magic.
The template I picked was called Parisian. I am after all just across the channel from France and I visit there quite often, so I could almost be French.....alright I know I'm pushing it. But now I feel updated and very continental and "tres" chic!
Ok, I admit that I got rid of my cycle a few years ago and my hair is shorter than in the header...but I'm still continental, truly I am, plus I'm working really hard on the chic bit too. I can almost feel the wind in my hair as I freewheel downhill on my cycle with my feet off the pedals, mm...that might not be so chic, but it is so me...or should I say how I would like me to be, lol.
Well, that's all for today but for those that are interested I intend to blog more often than I used to about life and me, but I will still have a weekly post with a freebie of some description for those who are interested to adding to their collection.
