Yay, I am back and raring to go :) the computer problem has been resolved to the cost of £379 for a new one!! the poor old credit card didn't know what hit it, but at least I am up and running again, and I must admit it is nice to have a nice new puter again. It may take a while to get round to you all, but thank you so much for all your kind wishes :)

No cards

No cards just a quick post to moan, my computer has conked out on me :(, I can not believe it, I have seen so many bloggers having computer problems and I have really felt for them and then what happens, mine dies too :( computer man says it is the motherboard and a waste of money to fix, so at the moment I am on Dave's work computer, I dont want to push my luck and use it too much (don't want him to get in trouble) so it may be a while until I can leave comments. I am still ok for the new blog "passion for promarkers" as I have a very good partner in crime Denise, who is doing most of the work at the moment, (thankyou xx), so don't forget to check out the new DT who will be announced tomorrow :) and a quick thank you to everyone who took the time to apply,
Can you believe I have WOJ summer stamps and the new Miss Anya sitting on my desk waiting to be inked up, but do you think I can find the time :(
Thank you for listening
