A very happy Monday to everyone! I am very pleased indeed to be able to show off that I have made friends on WordPress! I find making friends to be a tricky business (especially in a foreign country) and I am always delighted when someone wants to be friends with me. Both Becca of From my Lofty Hill and Nash from Open Source have nominated me for this award. … Continue reading Friendship Blogger Award
My lovely new friends, An Irish Procrastinator and Becca, have both been kind enough to nominate me for a Blogger Appreciation Award. I am very grateful for their appreciation and I thoroughly appreciate both of their blogs in my turn.

It was such a treat to receive not only ‘real’ post for a change, but also a special, one-of-a-kind present. Thank you so much – you have made my week … Continue reading Merci beaucoup!
“11 o’clock and all’s we—ell…!” So it begins, my nocturnal studies of the Internet – of Facebook,the news and far too many celebrity gossip sites – whilst my son, my lamb, my imp, my toad, my darling little cabbage end (mon p’tit bout d’chou) has the first of several late night snacks. We generally check up on each other once every couple of hours or … Continue reading Allons-y!
