Are we having fun yet? [Apr. 6th, 2017|08:51 pm]
[Tags|, ]

A State of the SheWhoMust update - which, dammit, is not what I wanted to be posting about. Then again, if my posts are to reflect the things that occupy my thoughts and take up my time, we are due several more on this subject. There are practical reasons, too, for a PSA along the lines of I am still here, I am trying to make this work, I am learning slowly, please bear with me...

I have not burned my boats with LJ. It may come to that, but for the time being I am still cross-posting, and I am still checking my friends page there. With diminishing results, admittedly: it's a bit of a tumbleweed town over there. Some people, I know, have moved to Dreamwidth, though I haven't found them all yet - and I was slow to work out how to do the 'subscribe / grant access' thing, so I hope I haven't seemed to snub anyone (and if I have, I didn't mean to honest!).

So I have a to-do list, and item one is: find friends. If you are reading this and I haven't made the link, please wave, and I'll remedy that.

Item two: find feeds. Unless DW doesn't do that, in which case, find out what DW does do to fill the gap (something. surely?).

Item three: in any case, find out more about how DW works. And whether there's an equivalent to the LJ-Archive software I've been using - still am, although it isn't ideal to be backing up a cross-posted account, even if LJ continues to support both sides of that equation (and I'd rather not be counting on that, either...).

Three items is enough for now. In other news, we have signed up with a bathroom company to convert the downstairs bathroom / shower room into a wet room, agreed a start date (beginning of May) and told the builder who did so much work for us last year that we have not accepted his bid. I'm sure we've made the right choice, though I'm frustrated that we can't have exactly what we want. Some of that is for technical reasons: I liked the idea of an overhead shower, but it would have meant replumbing the entire house, and rewiring the basement (I don't really understand the need, but that's why we employ professionals...). Some of it is just fashion: if you want two separate taps on your sink, it seems, you have to have an Edwardian style retro pedestal basin. Two taps is not modern. (In which case, I'll settle for a single mixer tap, but not without grumbling). These compromises make the whole project less exciting, but since it has to be done (and it does) I'm glad that we are that much closer to having it done. Now we can go on holiday and not think about it -

Oh, wait! Going on holiday: add item one-and-a-half to that list! Make sure I have DW logged in on my notebook...

This entry cross-posted from Dreamwidth: comments always welcome, at either location.

Still reading you on LJ! Though to be fair I've not posted anywhere over the last few days, but that's because of end-of-term madness...

Good to know you're still t/here! And I think we've made contact on the other side, too...
