Yeah, we're getting some funds and upgrading eventually, but for now it is. I was thinking the fact that we're using free hosting might be the problem. Is that it?

Its probably just taking longer to load the stylesheet than it is the page - could be a problem with the hosting or just with your net connection (depends whether everyone is experiencing the problem or just yourself). to be honest, it loads ok for me (delay between page load and stylesheet load almost isn't noticeable)
