  1. Hi Paddy,

    I am really enjoying the course BUT the blog part of it has been so damn infuriating!! I reckon that I have spent 10% of my time on the project and 90% of my time on uploading images onto my blog!!! I am feeling my way around the blog now but it can be very tempremental to say the least! Keep in touch. Rob X. PS. I have left you a message on your OCA whiteboard.
