That’s Better!

2 Dec


All week I’ve been muttering to myself, Must remember to decorate my blog on the first; must rememeber to decoarte my blog on the first; mum rebester to derocate by mog on the stirf (Sarsm’s Christmas cake recipe refers) and come the first, what happens?  I forgot.

It was the email from WordPress telling me how to turn on the snow that reminded me. 

What do you think?  Tasteful, no?

No.  But I don’t care; it’s Christmas!

    The snow is cute! I hoped my blogs would remember it from last year, but no. So thanks for the reminder, WordPress! 😉

    what snow? Did I miss something


    • Marion Driessen December 2, 2011 at 10:52 #

      Just wait a moment and then look at the top of the page. You will see little snow flakes falling all over 🙂


      • Tilly Bud December 2, 2011 at 10:59 #

        I love it; don’t you? 🙂

    so….um….how do you turn on the snow?


  5. laurieanichols December 2, 2011 at 13:27 #

    Wow, I like it a lot, very festive. Ho, Ho

    nice header! But some of the print/type is hard to read due to poor color contrast, alas.

      I tried using the WP Christmas theme but it wouldn’t allow my widgets. I am looking for something a little easier on the eye.

    Very festive! It’s a little hard to see the black and grey fonts (that make up your Blog title and your side bar info) but you probably did want us to see all that info anyway during the holiday season. 😉

    Love all the other background colors, though…


    • Tilly Bud December 3, 2011 at 11:43 #

      If you hover over something with the mouse it wil be highlighted.

    I like over the top, Tilly! The snow notice was what prompted my temporary theme change too. 🙂


  9. Big Al December 2, 2011 at 16:11 #

    Now that’s colorful! But I miss the laughing housewife picture.


  10. RoryBore December 2, 2011 at 16:12 #

    I have some real snow falling here if you want it 😉

    I haven’t even decorated my house yet, let alone my blog……where to begin?


    • Tilly Bud December 3, 2011 at 11:45 #

      My house is bare, too. These are last year’s pics 😉


  11. nrhatch December 2, 2011 at 16:37 #

    I love the pillows at the top! And Snoopy & Woodstock!

    Don’t worry about being over the top . . . tis the season to be tacky. Fa la la la la . . . do you like my tie?


  12. slpmartin December 2, 2011 at 17:19 #

    Since I live in SoCal…the word ‘snow’ is considered by some as… well…a word not to be used in polite company…so I’ve turn it off on my web browser. 😉


  13. Grannymar December 2, 2011 at 21:01 #

    ‘Tis the season to be jolly,
    Fa la la la la, la la la la
    Sing we joyous, all together,
    Fa la la, la la la, la la la.
    Heedless of the wind and weather,
    Fa la la la la, la la la la.

    Now I am ready for mulled wine and mince pies!


    • Tilly Bud December 3, 2011 at 11:49 #

      Don’t imbibe too mush of the munce pies and milled wine ?)

    I think I’ll have to Christmas mine up a bit more now…


  15. bluebee December 2, 2011 at 22:37 #

    What other time to be over the top but on Christmas? Our neighbourhood is getting its fair share of carbon taxing at the moment. An admirable effort, Tilly (love slpmartin’s comment, hehe)


  16. Hanna December 3, 2011 at 00:53 #

    Well, I don’t see any snow… Where did you put them? 😉


    • Tilly Bud December 3, 2011 at 12:10 #

      It’s at the top of the page. It’s probably feeble because this is Stockport; we don’t get much snow.


  17. sufilight December 3, 2011 at 02:40 #

    Very nice, Tilly. I feel festive while at your Blog. 🙂 I like the snow too! This post got caught in my spam filters, wonder why WordPress does this on occasion with posts. Oh, well.


    • Tilly Bud December 3, 2011 at 12:12 #

      I get that with comments to my email inbox. Weird.


  18. seo December 5, 2011 at 18:42 #

    A Christmas fan!


  19. Elaine December 5, 2011 at 23:35 #

    Snoopy!!! Yay!!!!


  20. ElizOF December 7, 2011 at 03:05 #

    Tilly, I don’t see the snow falling on your blog so check again. Yes, if you turn it on this year, it will automatically start snowing next year around the same time… I turned mine on last year and didn’t have to do a thing this year… Where is your snowfall? 🙂


    • Tilly Bud December 7, 2011 at 10:58 #

      Sorry, I took it off as it was slowing things down.


  21. Gobetween December 7, 2011 at 19:32 #

    It is 30°C here, I am skipping the snow on my blog it seems out of place.


    • Tilly Bud December 8, 2011 at 10:56 #

      Never thought I’d miss a SAn Christmas, but I do 🙂


  22. bevchen December 7, 2012 at 09:10 #

    My snow turned itself on. All I did was change my header to a photo I took at Heidelberg Christmas market. I’m thinking of changing it again though if I manage to take a better photo this weekend – that one’s a bit dark.


I welcome your comments but be warned: I'm menopausal and as likely to snarl as smile. Wine or Maltesers are an acceptable bribe; or a compliment about my youthful looks and cheery disposition will do in a pinch.
