I know it’s Friday but this is not going to be a Friday Favourites post. It should have been. In fact my plan was to spend this afternoon writing up the post and then sharing it with you all. But then Photobucket and their change of membership happened and suddenly all of our blog photos have been replaced with the ugly square that you can see on other posts. Now that’s irritating in itself, but on top of that Photobucket are asking me to pay £400 in order to upgrade and get my pictures back onto my website. Which I’m clearly not going to do, so those ugly images aren’t going anywhere soon – so sorry for that.
So what’s my new afternoon plan, I hear you ask? Well I’ve got to figure out a way to get my images out of Photobucket and into a new place. One that isn’t going to charge me a fortune each year for using a site that’s covered in adverts. And then I’ll be fixing all the image links on the blog. So fun times all round!
The most frustrating thing about all of this is that there was absolutely no warning. If there had been then at least I could have planned for this happening on this day, because I love a good plan. But no, a plan wasn’t possible, for whatever reason. I work in business change and my whole working life is about having a change and communication plan, so the fact that Photobucket didn’t deem this necessary with this update is laughable.
Anyway, to stop this post from being a complete moan fest I will tell you quickly that I’ve had a very quiet week, which has been just what I have needed. I’ve managed to go for an early morning swim twice this week. Foodwise I’ve made some super quick but delicious meals and I’m currently reading a wonderful book. It’s book four in the Throne of Glass series and I am in complete awe over the way that Sarah J. Maas weaves such an incredible story and creates utterly remarkable characters. It’s the kind of story, you never want to finish, and yet you need to know what’s going to happen.
I hope everyone has had a lovely week and is looking forward to the weekend. I’ve got the next nine days off work, and I am completely looking forward to it. At least I’ll have plenty of time to fix my blog photos!
