Hello, hello!

Gosh, doesn't time fly? I hadn't realised quite how long it was since I last posted... I'd intended to get back into blogging once we broke up for the summer holiday, but then we were due to go away for the best part of 3 weeks and I didn't think it would be ideal to take an immediate blog break!

Also, my poor laptop is on its last legs, and I needed to wait until we got back from our trip before ordering a new one. We got back yesterday, I placed the order this morning and my new laptop should be here soon - hooray! :) Then I'll be able to sort through the (ahem!) over 1500 photos I took during our holiday, and choose some to show you. I also have news of the job I'll be starting in September, another #3UP project, some scavenger hunt photos and a few 'proud mother' moments to share!

Thanks so much to those of you who emailed to wish me a happy birthday or just to say hello :) I will be responding to you all individually but the motor of my laptop is making ominous noises so I think it's about to switch itself off... Once the new one arrives I'll catch up properly with you all, but for now I'll be back offline for a short while. Speak soon xx

Well, howdy stranger! Sounds like a pretty plausible excuse I guess. We'll let you off.
Looking forward to hearing of all your adventures when the new laptop arrives.

Good to see you back Mel. Glad you've been having a fun packed Summer. Belated birthday wishes from me. After 6 years good service, my laptop took its last breath on Friday and now I have a shiny new one. Windows 8 is a bit of a learning curve!
