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???


Best get Coffee and Carry On

Happy Sunday Everyone

T'is the Season....

Posted on 10 July, 2018 at 15:02

 
I know, I know – l  o  n  g  time no Blog but, really, it’s been totally bonkers here for weeks!  It’s the WEDDING  SEASON already, okay? And does the rest of my Life stop and Pause a while so I can get on with all my Flowery stuff? Absolutely NOT ha!
So we’re doin’ the all the normal, everyday Mumma stuff here… The school runs… Teen support….Organising the Husband… Forgetting to defrost Supper… Not Hoovering (as always)… Remembering the family Birthdays (thank God for Moonpig!)... Housey-Washingy stuff… NOT Ironing (haven’t done that for almost two decades now ha! #result… Having some fairly major dentistry done (ouchy-ouchy on the £££’s)…  Organising a new Laptop for my son after his old one stopped working, again.. (ouchy-ouch-oucheee on the £££’s #gottahaveaTerabiteofthis #gottahaveani5somethingofthat…
And don’t even get me started on the Garden…..
 
PLUS…
All the Busiest Florista Stuff you can imagine!!... Up early mornings to get on the Dutch websites and get those Flowers.… Fending off the growing Paperwork pile and totally NOT succeeding.… Being there for last minute Bride requests…
Being there for new and excited Brides wanting to book in.…
Going on lovely venue visits with new Brides – Yep – Love that too…
Ordering lots of lovely new stock! I do enjoy that bit but sometimes I get carried away… new ribbons, new wrap, new lace… velvet…satin… Tissue Paper! I LOVE tissue paper… vases and votives… garlands to add to the Silk Blossom Trees…
I could go on but I won’t :)
 
 
Anyway, let me give you a little pictorial “Catch Up” of what’s been happening…
 
Lilly Cat’s been chillin’
 
Harley Puss has been chillin’ too
 
(PS. They don’t yet know they’ve got a VET’S appt for jabs coming up… )
 
I’ve been doing a bit of this… #homecooking


And a bit of that… #afternoontea
 

And a lot of this… #thebusyflorista
 
The Garden’s been looking lovely… Well, okay, I have to say early June was FAB but it’s been a tad overblown, overgrown and somewhat Blowsy since then ha!
But all my Sage cuttings have survived and we’ve had Strawberries and I’ve grown Chives!
 Okay - neither of these want to go round the right way...

Oh and I must tell you – I knew I’d been doing too much floristry prep when I caught myself cutting Broccoli stems one evening at a 45 degree angle ha ha!
 
Oh now, I’ve got to show you this – This is Harls on a hot day…  under the duvet.. Nomad style. What is he like… #gottalovehim
Yep - this pic being difficult too..... 

Ps. I’ve noticed a distinct increase in my use of hash tags since I’ve been watching Love Island on ITV hub whenever I stop for a bite to eat ..
I know, bear with me on this, I’ll be fine again in a few months’ time…
But don’t tell me ANYTHING okay you guys -  I’m still about 5 days behind everyone else ha!
 
So, here we go into another full on wedding prep day tomorrow – I’ve had some of the most Gorgeous weddings to do this year, I mean absolutely fabulous couples and wonderful briefs. Just lovin’ it. Love them all – having a super season! Watch out for the Insta posts okay?
And if you’re getting married in 2019 or 2020 in Suffolk, Essex, Cambs or Norfolk and would like a Coffee-Biscuit-Consult with me here at the Studios then give me a shout – Love to see you! x

 




Xx Happy Summer Everyone! Xx
