It’s a horrible wet day here today. Definitely not the best day to set out and choose a Christmas tree today. It’s slightly fraught, anyway, because I always insist on doing Christmas the German way. While in Ireland the Christmas trees are set up at the beginning of December, I follow the old tradition of only putting it up and decorating it on the morning of Christmas Eve. By the time we get around to choosing out tree, the best ones are already gone and we occasionally have struggled to even find anywhere that still sells Christmas trees. Today we managed to track down a tree market and made our choice while standing in a deserted car park during Yellow Weather Warning rain showers. It’s only worth-while if it hurts, right? But the tree is bought and is now resting and drying in the garage, ready to be set up next Tuesday.
Despite the continuing rain, I braved it again in the afternoon as I had to put a junk journal order into the post. And because I needed some replacement candles for my advent wreath arrangement in the kitchen. While Mr Guylty treated me to a hot beverage in a café afterwards, I received good news. Another step on the way to the renewed RAnet site has been taken. The developers have the bones of the site in place and granted me a first look. It’s not fully populated yet, and I need to tinker with the menu, but here’s another glimpse for you of the site as it may look.
Still recognisably RAnet, I think. I have kept Ali’s ongoing News page that infinitely scrolls down for old items, rather than turn it into a blog with individual posts. The other menu points are self-explanatory. Header image is the same, and I don’t know where the banner on the landing page comes from, but I like it. Exciting!!!
