I have also done same for a nursery and a nail salon in sheffield. So things are moving onwards and upwards.
Cheers everyone.
Good to hear. I overlooked this last post. I also forgot to mention the built in SEO functionality / friendliness of Theses though.

Personally, I use the Thesis theme. It turns the basic WordPress platform into a customizable dream. OK, it's a premium theme, so you pay for it... but get the developer's version and you can deploy it on any and every site you ever create. It's up there with the best money I've ever spent... and is well under $200. You couldn't get half the quality for twice the price from a traditional web designer.

Hornet's nest maybe, but that's my 2 cents.
I have to agree about wordpress, since getting myself familiar with it, I love it. I can do static sites in it and add blogs on at a later date. i've just converted 2 of my clients sites to wordpress, as they can update things for themselves if they wanted to. I have also bought Artisteer 2.0 for designing my own customized theme's. Here's one I've done for Glow Salon in Sheffield www.nailsalonsheffield.co.uk. I've also started my own hosting server www.embertechsolutions.co.uk so I can offer my clients a brilliant deal and full control over everything. Its totally awsome! and thanks for the post.
