Tonight I am in the beautiful seaside town of Swanage. After conference we took the ferry from the pier in Bournemouth and crossed the sea to this lovely little town. After a quick look around the nik nak shops where I made a very useful purchase I had a nice cider and fish and chips for tea. We are now waiting for the open top bus to take us back past such well known landmarks as Sandbanks and Brownsea Island . It's been a great day with an inspirational speaker, Billy Bragg bashing the BNP !! Happy Days

Well my luck has finally broken for the past 4 years I have always managed to land the best room when we have booked for conference. Well this time I have the duff room,this one is smaller than my cabin on the Oceana!! On the other hand Mark has snaffled a double room with dual aspect and a king size bed. My bed was the hardest bed in the world it was like sleeping on the floor I managed to get the matress changed for a softer one and had a better nights sleep.
The conference has potential a bit of a curfuffle this morning between the NEC and Delegate after that it was business as usual.
Today the weather has been beautiful I finally got down to the beach and had a trip on the cliff lift. Tonight we are going to Swanage for tea.
Tomorrow the guest speaker is Billy Bragg I'm looking forward to that one!!

Today I am heading off to Bournemouth. UNISON National Conference is being held there so I am going to represent our Branch along with a colleague, Mark. We have hopefully booked into a nice hotel (last time we were in Bournemouth, it was OK but not too brilliant!!)The sad thing is that this time I have to travel on my own, so I'll just have to pace myself.
Yesterday Carl got stuck into his new bedroom, he has decided on two walls white and two walls green. The green is really quite bright but now its up I like it. Once that is finished we can get a carpet down and start putting things like his bed back in,once that has been sorted we can start to get the rest of the stuff back in there. The only spanner in the works is that he goes away on holiday on Tuesday so its going to largely be on hold for a week.
Beth's room is also finished so If Tom gets time he will try and paint that this week and start to get some of her stuff back in the right places. Beth has also helped out, she has painted her shelves white, which took her far longer than expected and she got bored wit that a long time before she finished, but she has laboured on and finished one of them. She did the painting in the garden and we were having dinner when our resident pigeon family decided to all sit on the top shelf!! Luckily the paint had dried by then!
I am going to try and check in during the week I am worried that some low life might try and do it again!!!

Last week Raymonde alerted me to a potential problem with my blog, it seems that my visitors were getting a red warning message advising them that there was a possible infection on my site and that I might have been hacked. This was a first for me and initially I couldn't find out what the issue was as it was still correctly displaying on my own computer. I was not getting any warnings.
Eventually I worked my way through the considerable help pages on Google and I managed to scan my site with a couple of different programs. These programs eventually identified a 'bad string' of code in the HTML of the blog. They identified it and told me what it was, but not where it was. It then took me a couple of hours to track it down, I eventually found it in one of the elements I was using on my page. It seems that the infection had come from that site.
Once I had eliminated that I had to reapply to Google to lift the ban on the site. On rechecking they have told me that they have lifted the ban and the site is now clear. The problem is that I thought I had enough protection as I have paid for anti virus software that covers my blog. I have had to change all my passwords and remove some blog elements. Beyond that its back to finger crossing and hoping it doesn't happen again!

Considering this has been a four day week Friday has been a long time arriving!! Work is stupid busy and I don't know if I am coming or going. (going mainly as we move office again next Tuesday!) Home is still in uproar, we have 'stuff' everywhere due to the wall moving exercise planned for next Tuesday.
Carl has gutted his room all that's left is his bed, we need to take that down and then we will be clear. Beth needs to get her side sorted out, we will give her a hand to move things to the other side of the room. By next Friday we should be finished with just the painting and decorating to do, oh and the new flooring.
Yesterday was Toms birthday so we went out for dinner, his choice so we ended up in the local Indian. Had a very nice dinner, we are not very adventurous, we all had Korma's!!!
Beth is into her final week of rehearsals for her play, she is really enjoying it. They are now finally able to get on stage and practice so it feels as if they are almost there!!

Yesterday Beth and I took a trip to Dunelm Mills in Stevenage, it was packed and we had trouble finding a parking space. I am glad we eventually did because there were loads of bargains!!
I had planned on replacing my table cloth, I like the oil cloth that they do in there (PVC backed with cotton) So that was the reason for going. I did get some more oil cloth, this time in a lovely coffee coloured and cream spot, which is already protecting my table!!
Once we got there it was obvious that they were having a sale there were loads of things that I could have bought . One of the bargains of the day were the DCWV 12 inch pads which were half price at £7 a pad. There were lots of different ones but I bought Linen Closet and Nana's Kitchen, both have loads of designs I can see me using.
Beth is quite crafty and has been after a sewing machine for a while, (I can remember wanting one when I was a kid!) so we were amazed to find that they had 4 different types starting at £9.99. We eventually decided to buy one reduced from £44 to £32 which does straight stitch and 7 different zig zag stitches. I am amazed as it is a study little thing and stitches perfectly. She has already got to grips with it, raided my material cupboard and made a whacky doll. Today while I am at work she is planning on patchwork.
Dunelm also had bargain Candles and those giant sized 'sucky' bags where you load up the clothes and then suck the air out. I thought they might be useful while the wall is in progress for storing clothes.
Have a great week, off to work now!!
