A change is as good as a rest. So they say. So I have decided to change my theme. The old one had begun to bore me. Do you like? Or not like? I’m not 100% sure, but I rarely am when it comes to change. I’ll run with it for a while and see if I get used to it. There’s no sidebar or footer for widgets.

I tried, really I tried. But I just couldn’t quite completely, irrevocably fall in love with Zoren.It had it’s plus points. But it was just too cumbersome, bloated and space-wasting. We had to part.

This one will have to do. It’s simple, and clean. Utilitarian, almost. All the fancy stuff cut out. It has a plain-Jane menu. A raft of new headers to go with my favourite old headers.

The first Jacarandas are out. Tis spring, and time for cleaning. I thought I’d start with a new look for my blog. I’m not sure it’s better, but it does at least look ‘fresher’. It has pros and cons. I prefer the ‘comment’ link to be at the top of the post, as it is with this theme. And wasn’t with the last one. The text is smaller, but I prefer this font size. Those with dodgy vision might disagree. My Flickr photos can be displayed, but maybe they’re a little too distracting? I haven’t made my mind up. What do you think? Feedback is welcome.
