Hi everyone!

I am finally (and after many false re-starts) back!! I cannot tell you how much I've missed being able to post here, so I'm thrilled to be able to get back to it!

I've given up on the idea of posting the photos under the dates I had originally planned to post them on (far too time consuming to change them all), so I'll just begin posting them from the present date. Sound Ok?

So glad to be back!! And many, many thanks for all your lovely comments!

All the best,
