technical shennanigins

I am definitely having rather a slow start this morning.

I spent a large part of last night doing Search Engine Optimisation stuff for the business website. It's not something I've explored very much before and I'm learning as I go. All sorts of black arts like Robots, Meta Tags and the best way to submit your site to major search engines.

And then in a fit of 'entering the twenty first century', I subscribed to Skype and optimised my blog feed (see the little pink icon over on the left!).

So I kind of forgot to have any proper tea and it was half past midnight before I realised, so excited was I by the reasonable pricing of Google's 'pay per click' advertising.

Sad, I know.

And then I turned the alarm off in a fit of self-indulgence and was woken up at five to ten (FIVE TO TEN) by the phone and three anxious cats. Whoever it was withheld their number and didn't leave a message; and then did the same thing on the business line, so it can't have been all that important.

I have filing to do. But instead, I think I'm going to have a smoothie and plant my clematis.

It's called Montana Pink Perfection and is apparently very fast growing - designed to go like the clappers up the as-yet-non-existant-fence. It came in a box with some other plants and had clearly grown a couple of inches overnight - it had managed to wrap itself around them. I am a bit scared of leaving it on the kitchen window sill for very long in case I come down in the morning and it has taken over the kitchen, a la some Terrible Science Fiction Tragedy.
