Make Windows XP look nicer

Start button

If like me you spend a lot of your day looking at a PC then you want it to be as easy on the easy as possible. The standard Windows XP look does get quite boring after a while, so for the last year or so I have had the Royale themeinstalled on both my PCs. Royale makes the interface look quite a bit sleeker than the standard Windows theme with a shiny almost glassy look to windows and buttons; I much prefer the Royale theme to the standard XP one.

Yesterday I discovered that MS have released a new theme to co-incide with their new portable media player “Zune”. It’s very similar to Royale except it’s black and orange rather than bue and green. It really is very pretty, and better yet, the colour scheme matches this site! Go and install it now, your eyes will thank you for it.

Baby update – 38 week check

Today’s Midwife appointment was pretty uneventful. The results from Laura’s Glucose & Iron tests where fine; baby’s heart rate is fine. It’s lying in the correct position, so that’s fine too :o)

Laura is extremely uncomfortable and pretty fed up now and I can’t say I blame her. We are both just looking forward to baby Ford making an appearance now.
