A New Home

Things have been quiet in this part of the interweb these last couple of weeks. Maybe you noticed, maybe you didn’t. Nothing is wrong. But one is moving. A man’s home is his castle, and one has decided a new castle is in order for 2014. One would have liked a palace instead, but in the current economic climate, a cosy little one bedroom flat, all very modern by the by, is more in order. I guess I’ll have to take you on a tour of my new hood soonish.

Moving is a surprisingly strenuous ordeal. Who knew how much junk one can accumulate in less than three years? Anyway, we’re very happy with our new flat and it’s in a great location. I’ve decided to move my blog into a new home too. Again. Maybe this one will stick. We’ll see. Otherwise, dear Pilcrow, I will return….

  1. As one whose mother would only list his address in pencil, my sympathies… and congratulations on finding your own castle (one, presumably, much easier to clean than a palace… and saving you the trouble of all those butlers and maids underfoot).


  2. I was wondering what had become of you. But of course I knew you were moving, so should have put two and two together.

    As for the theme, it’s nice and clean. Elegant even. But I really liked the random header photos of the old one, since you take such nice photos. Frankly, if you weren’t already using Pilcrow, I probably would have chosen it for my own blog as I like it that much. But now that I have it, I’m very happy with Chateau, which is both clean and elegant.

    In truth, as long as your theme isn’t ugly, content triumphs all.

    • I too liked Pilcrow. That I stuck with it for so long and kept returning to it says as much. But I just want a theme that is a little wider, with nicer formatting on the sidebars.

      I have updated the banner, with a twist on my images. Some of them work better than others. I’ll revisit the banner images another day when I have more time.

      I suspect your move to Mexico will be more arduous than our little traipse across the county. However I suspect our move to Mexico, whenever that comes, will be a little easier than this one. There’s only so much you can fit in a few suitcases.


      • I see now what you’re doing with the header photos. Perhaps “THE MEXILE” should be in some color other than black. Initially I didn’t “get” it, as the photo under it didn’t really lend itself to what you were doing. If you used the same grey as the menu bar, it might work better.

        • The background really needs to be black because of the theme colour palette. Which means that the images I choose need to be simple, light and bright. Some of the original batch definitely weren’t any of those. I’ve uploaded a new batch, which are hopefully a little more appropriate.
