Worden Park in Half Term

I expected Worden park to be much much busier during a stunning day in February half term. Surprisingly it was reasonably quiet and Harry and James absolutely loved it playing in the playground.

Saturday Stroll Through Brindle Lodge

I ventured out with the kids this afternoon and thought we would call in on Grandad and Grandma and then take a stroll around Brindle Lodge. This is somewhere I would have walked through many a time as child but never been back since.

The morning after we had a great breakfast at the Breakfast Club restaurant after meeting one of our clients.

A Few Days in Grassington

Spent a lovely few days in the caravan with the boys. They played on the park, getting to know others on the site and enjoyed some walks about and about.

We also have some fabulous Barnsley chops on the BBQ which led to a discussion as to why they were called ‘Barnsley Chops’.

House Extension

In the spring of this year we finally decided to get some prices on a new extension for our house. After being recommended, we opted to have the extension built by Kemp Building services. Having also met Jamie (the builder) he was quick to put us at ease with the process and made everything nice a clear.

The price was right and the extension would now begin work in the early months of May.

In the summer we took a lovely road trip through the tunnel to the small village of Brinon sur Sauldre where we had rented a villa for the week to celebrate a momentous family occasion.

We all had a great time and the kids had a ball in the pool!

Beyond FTP

We have all used FTP as developers to move files from editing them locally to our production server. Developers know the problems this can cause and why alternatives are needed. In this talk I will introduce my WordPress development process and how you can move on from FTP to a more robust development and deployment system.
