    • Thank you Karen. I appreciate that. I am fine. I wanted people who read my blog to see that although I have struggled in 5he past I kept trying.

      • Good good! There just seemed to be alot of retro stuff and i was concerned you might be struggling with it being a new year and all that brings! Glad u are cool always here if u are not!

After midnight here in the uk so i wish you good night ‘see’ you soon 🙂
