Firstly I'd like to thank everyone for all your lovely comments, they really meant so very much to me. It's so nice to know I have made some really great friends through blogging.
Ok the reason for my wee disappearing act? Well him indoors and I have split, it has been a tough couple of months especially as we did not want to tell the kids for a while as big one had her exams at school. And we needed to get our own heads into some sort of order. Telling them was hard but it is now done. I could not share with you beforehand as big one sometimes likes to wander over her and take a peek at what I've been talking about.
I may still be jumping in and out of the blogging world for a wee while to come.
