I don’t know how long I will keep this up, but there is an improved chance now that I once again have access to the classic editor. For this I must thank https://babsjeheron.wordpress.com/ who pointed me in the direction of Katherine Wikoff’s post on this subject. Many thanks to both.
In the manner of Garrison Keillor, it has been a quiet week at Beaufront Woodhead. Snow fell heavily last Saturday night such that Sunday dawned bright and very white. Most had melted by Sunday night. Monday remained bright but cold and then the dismal weather set in for three days. Astonishingly on Friday, my first round of golf since November 11th was played up the coast, at Warkworth, under clear blue skies. Normal service was resumed on Saturday. Yes, the English are obsessed by weather.
This is the collection of images posted daily on Blipfoto:
In other news, I finished another proof read of Golf in the Wild – Going Home – the third in as many weeks. It’s a slow process but worth the effort – I am still hopeful for publication before the end of January.
I’ve become quite accustomed to the new editor, and I like it.
Btw, not only the English are obsessed with the weather. We here are, too. 😉
It’s what you get used to I guess – I am just too lazy to relearn/investigate.
Hope you are not getting quite as much weather as we have recently.
All the best, Robin
It definitely takes some time to get used to, Robin. I still vividly my days – and weeks and months – of learning. But now I won’t miss it as it gives me more formatting choices.
We just had our first frost last night, down to 29 Fahrenheit [-1.5 Centigrade], but now it’s a gorgeous and fairly warm day with bright sunshien from a clear blue sky.
I had read abut that bad weather in GB.
Have a wonderful per-Christmkas time,
Wonderful photos. The grey or overcast photos make me feel right at home. And happy that Katherine’s classic editor trick works for you! All credit to her for that very helpful post of hers. Without it I would have definitely abandoned my own blog. Happily looking forward to more of your excellent posts as your time permits.
Many thanks for the kind comments and once again for pointing me in the direction of Katherine – very helpful.
Persist with that editor, Robin
🙂 Persistence is the only strength I have 😉
I detest the new editor, it’s so ‘unfriendly’. I use a similar method to Katherine, but instead of opening. A new tab, simply reopen the draft but select ‘classic editor’ in the option box. Works a treat. I love the photos (as always) the blue sky over Warkworth is just stunning, we could certainly do with a few more I
Many thanks for the kind comments. I will now try your method.
Good to hear you found a way back to the classic editor. I’m nearly gone so I’m not going to figure that out.
Love the photos. The Photoshop app looks like fun. The weather here has been dreary too. But it has its charm.
ps…wonderful news about the proofreading. Do you format your books yourself? I’m trying to learn how for my memoir and Blue.
It will be a shame to see you leave these shores – let me know where you have gone. Thanks for the kind comments, Julie. I formatted the first book myself with InDesign. It is the only time I used it and nearly 7 years later I had completely forgotten the interface So, rather than renew the licence and re-learn, I opted to pay someone else to do it. Just lazy, I guess 😉
It’s a decision I reflected on for months. I will let my readers know details in my New Year post. It’s not lazy to pay someone to format your book. I’m trying to teach myself using LibreOffice. It’s a pain!
Lovely to find you here AGAIN, Robin. And glad you resolved the ‘classic’ lack.
Thanks Tish, I really need to make more of an effort. My excuses are Blip, golf and the bikes (8500 miles this year). On top of that GITW#2 has been consuming a lot of time which should diminish with publication, but then comes the promoting 😦 . At least the classic editor is accessible again.
