The mess! This layout doesn’t work!

I’m having layout doubts again. I know how I’d like to change the images at the top¬†but what about the rest of it? Something’s just not right. And I know myself, this is going to keep bugging me and hinder my website-related work until I fix it.

The featured image of this post is one I made some years ago after having read someone’s blog post about how she spotted a rat at the dump and it turned and looked at her. No doubt that would be a hideous experience for many people but I rather have a thing for rats and mice, so my rat at the dump looks friendly. The dump is more or less how I feel about my website right now.¬†Perhaps someone else can see this place the way I see the rat; a perfectly lovely thing. The trouble is that I can’t.
