Apologies to everyone - I've been unable to visit blogs since Wednesday because the power was off for a couple of hours during the morning and when they turned it back on it appears to have 'killed' my router which left me with no broadband connection until a replacement router arrived today which I've just set up to get me up and running again. However did we manage before the Internet kept us in touch!!
Hopefully normal service is now resumed. There is always a silver lining though - at least I've not been able to spend any money on online craft goodies and couldn't go out to the local shop in case I missed the package being delivered!!
