We had a bad storm pass overhead about 10 days ago which wiped out something electrical in most of the village: For us it was the modem! Nightmare, and first priority when the new box arrived had to be catching up on customer orders and restocking my eBay shop. Now I am ready to start catching up with some challenges and have just been blog-hopping. That means I have some candy alerts to share: Ann of Creative Antics has some Christmas candy; Desiree is celebrating 15000 hits and Bev of All the Things I Love has gorgeous Whiff of Joy candy to celebrate 50000 hits!
and last but not least BIG thanks to Gayle of Little Bird Design: When we got back on-line I discovered I had won her generous blog candy which cheered me up massively amongst all the chaos!
