Hi everyone

Long time no post, hope everyone is warm, well and in festive cheer!  I have just popped on to wish you all a fabulous Christmas time and hope 2012 is happy and healthy for you and your families.  I have been AWOL for a couple of weeks, I just got sooo behind I had to leave the computer off and my craft cupboard closed!  Anyway everything is finally looking a bit more ship shape now, I am off until 3rd Jan so looking forward to a couple of days with the family and then let the crafting begin!  We have a party at mine tonight, got my sausage rolls in the oven, a little glass of bubbly on the go ( must remember to pace myself LOL)! 

Catch up with you all soon.
Big hugs

Just popped on to let you know that my commenting problem is fixed, had to change to Firefox but seems to have solved it, thanks Caroline , Julie and Donna.

I am having a  non crafty weekend desperately trying to catch up with some stuff at home.  Just wanted to let you know though that over at CES we have 'Traditional Christmas' challenge' and at Here Come the Boys join us for some Rock and Roll!

Hope you have a great week.

Can anyone please help with commenting???????


I am pulling my hair out now with not being able to leave comments.  If you have a separate pop up box everything is ok and comments work fine but if its one where the whole post reloads with the comment box at the bottom I can't.  Blogger keeps asking me to choose a profile from the drop down box which is empty?

I have google chrome, the stay signed in box is unticked.  I have tried signing out on the page and signing back in but nothing works.

Everything was ok and it just suddenly started doing this been a week now, has anyone got any suggestions and is there any contact number for Blogger because I can't find one?

Any ideas would be most welcome and I am sorry if I have not left you a comment this week, its because I can't!!

thanks for poppin in
