IMPORTANT note about my web site and Joomla Extensions
In an attempt to better organise my life (HA!), I'm currently separating my personal and work sites. If you're looking for my Joomla Extensions, or anything related to my work for that matter, then head over to the new work site, here. (Yes, it's work in progress.. isn't it always?)
Over the last couple of years, I've begun to feel the effects of sitting in front of a computer for 25 years (aside from the cobwebs that is!). Firstly the wrists started to go, which put an end to my guitaring, and I'm generally stiffening up due to lack of computer-free time.
In November, I offered to help out with my daughters swimming lessons at the school. I thoroughly enjoyed a) being away from the computer, and b) helping the kids with their swimming. I spoke with Graeme, the poolman, and he put me on to the AustSwim organisation. After a lot of swimming, a course, a lot of reading, and sitting in with lots of lessons, I finally got assessed just after the new year, and landed head first in running three weeks of intensive swimming classes through the holidays. I'm proud to say I didn't lose anyone!! :^) I'm now about to start the Term 1 one lessons, and have 8 weeks or so until the pool closes for winter.
So in-between the web coding, my joomla extensions, and getting as much riding in as I can, I now get a few hours a week in the pool. I can't think of a better place to be, and a great way to get a little exercise away from the computer!
I would like to say a massive THANK YOU to Graeme & Leigh for their support, and of course to Emma & Rebecca for all their help too!
