Under construction... please excuse the mess!

The people behind Blogger have been busy recently, and whatever changes they've made over the last while, they no longer play nice with my old custom template. While I can still post (obviously as you're seeing this!), I can not access any other parts of my blog. Perhaps it doesn't really matter, and no one would really notice, but it feels strange to me to have new posts when all of my sidebar content is stuck in 2011. (One of the reasons I still haven't got back to a blogging routine, sorry). So it seems that it is time for a blog overhaul.

I've had this current template for a couple of years now, and for the most part, I do still like it. So for now, I plan to keep the same general colour-scheme, and layout. But it's also a chance to tidy things up, and simplify a few things. So bear with me as I switch over to a new simple template, and implement some design features. I've already spent a few hours on Sunday, and again today, working some things out on my test blog, so hopefully the transition won't be too painful, but things may look a little strange over the next few days. Thanks to everyone for their support and friendship, even during this long blog absence. I hope to have In Spring it is the Dawn up and running again soon.


  1. We'll be patiently waiting! Can't wait to see the final result.

  2. Good luck getting everything organized!

  3. Hi Nat :))))))

    So nice to have you back :) I keep you on my Pulse (tablet) and just seen your post.

    Hope you are doing well and you are happy in your new home.

  4. Good luck constructing! It's a drag when things don't work just right anymore.

  5. Good luck with everything! I can't wait to see your blog's new look.

  6. I love your new header, Nat! And I love the clean, fresh look of your blog, thus far. I hope you get it looking exactly how you'd like it to look.

  7. Take care - hope the reconstruction runs smoothly for you. Looking good so far :)
