How we React to Things...

Artist Susan Jane May sketchbook at Studio2Artwork

I recently had a situation happen to me that comletely knocked me for six, floored me, upset me beyond belief and there was absolutely nothing I could do about it. Nothing.

My website provider switched my site builder from one day to the next, completely reformatting my website. The first I knew about it was when I clicked on my site and thought it didn't look right and definitely not how I left it last time.. Different fonts, mis-aligned text, different colours...

All the hours of SEO work that I'd learnt how to do had gone. Nothing there. Removed. Blank sheet. From 21st October 2020 this was, effectively, a new site on the net. Old stats gone. Tools I'd relied on since first building my site in 2008 gone. Just gone.

About two months ago I did receive an email about upgrading the site at some point. No date given and no communication whatsoever since. No heads up on the change over date - nothing. I had no chance to screen shot info or key words and there's no tutorial on how to use the new builder. Do you laugh because it's nuts or do you cry... I cried.

 I felt like I'd lost a huge part of me - a bit silly maybe but there you go, that's how I felt. I liked to look back to see what visits I'd had from where and see how my site had done over the years. I was really proud of the 80% SEO mark I'd managed to get by tweaking a word here, adding a different phrase there, making some words plural and others not... all these little things make the difference and it was a fair bit of a learning curve for me - I've got none of them saved , of course..

So... Anyways... Deep breath...

I recently treated myself to a lovely book - The Boy, the Mole, the Fox and the Horse by Charlie Mackesy. A truly beautiful book.

The Boy, The Mole, the Fox and the Horse book by Charlie Mackesy

On one of the pages it says " One of our greatest freedoms is how we react to things ".

So very true..

Can I live without all that archived data? Yes, of course..

Can I learn how to use this new builder? Yes...

Will it take me hours to re-do the SEO work? Yes!!! :(

But can I do it? Oh yes...

Um... Is it easier to write this blog post in the new builder format...? Yes.

Does my website now have that lovely little secure padlock icon? Yes.

Might I learn to love this new builder? Oh probably...

There's a cherry in here somewhere - I just have to find it...

And find that pesky, invaluable SEO analyser... now where on earth has that gone???

Happy Sunday Everyone

And so another week has passed here in the blink of an eye!
Whenever did time get to move sooo swiftly?
I’ve had a Fab day today meeting, amongst others, a February wedding couple over at Hengrave Hall, Bury St. Edmunds to discuss amazing flowers…and Trees… ooh, I Love those!
Soo looking forward to this one – there’s Lots of creative collaboration going on here! Can’t wait! xx
So, now, back to the present…
Our Lilly… well she’s a whole lot better Hooray! Back to the AHT tomorrow to see the neurologists but…
She’s been jumping up onto the small sofa again all by herself –

Enjoying snuggles on the bed (alright…which she can’t quite jump up onto by herself but, hey, can now get down from with no trouble bless..)

And Harls??
Well he’s been REAL busy here this week… as you can see…

#ChilledBirman   # Workinghardintheoffice   


I think I might be in agreement with #WinstonChurchill here and decide to come back as a cat ha!

And talking about cats… So sorry, I can’t get this pic to go the right way round! ...

We have a local pussycat who’s just lovin’ the studio vibes at the mo…
And is quite colour co-ordinated too ha!
Lucky for this little puss, our Big Blonde has never mastered the art of fence or tree climbing… (Yep, I know, it’s an indoors-mainly- temple-cat-Birman-thing)
So if he snuggles up on the warm roof QUIETLY Harls never knows he’s there… Shhh…

And me? Well here’s what I’ve been up to on the Floristry side of things…
Bouquets and Buttonholes…

Tackling thorny, but Gorgeous, Vendela Roses….

And getting very excited about creating new designs for Indian Wedding and Celebration Garlands…
And prepping for a Day Off!! HOORAY!!
Tomorrow I’ll be giving myself some new Henna Tattoos…

When you work all weekend, Mondays are off right?
xx Happy Monday Everyone xx
