The most stressful day
I am posting this image of a lovely calming hydrangea heart to compensate for having the MOST STRESSFUL DAY.
This morning was fine - not really my sort of thing but there you go. Katie wanted to spend her holiday money - £13.68 - so we went into Glasgow and she went into a frenzy in Claire's Accessories where they had a special deal where you could get10 sale items for £5.
We now have a very happy 6 year old with lots of glittery bits in her hair.
Then I got back here to find that the buttons on my website were not all working properly - aaaarggggh - lots of individual orders instead of nicely grouped ones. I emailed everyone to confirm their orders and refund their multiple postages and thought "Aha, it is a problem with the shopping baskets - I can fix that"
So I redid all the shopping basket buttons on the website, very tedious work, - loaded it all up and found that now NOTHING worked.
Hmmmm. I was not a happy bunny. I ate a lot of chocolate (73% cocoa - allowed), I stomped around, I phoned the Stirling Enterprise IT man (who was out). In the end it turned out that I had bookmarked paypal and they had subsequently changed their site so none of my buttons matched their baskets. Therefore nothing connected and you just got error messages.
Now I have redone it all again and it looks to be working. I think. Of course I have managed to b****r up all the spacing on the pages in my panic but that is for another day. I have put a note up about contacting me if anything doesn't work.
See pride comes before a fall. How professional I must look.
I am now off to pack up these baskets and calm down so that they can be sent off with love! After the postal strike that is.
