Feeling bad about the blogging hiatus. Have plenty to tell you all about but one child has had to have a minor (planned) operation. Nothing too bad and all went well. I'm not a great fan of hospitals so paralysis of the typing fingers took hold. Normal transmission will be resumed shortly....In the meantime I would like to award (as I was kindly honoured by Sandi McBride) "Sharing the Love" to Tartetartan and Ladythinker and Rosiero who have had a bit of a hard time of it lately. They all write very well despite their respective ups and downs...they definitely fit the criterion of being a " Hadriana Treasure".
