I'm back from my wonderful trip to New Zealand where Mr Taluula and I visited both Islands and had a blast of a time. We travelled for 7 weeks in the tiniest of campervans, but oh it was so worth it and something we will always remember, seeing such sights and making so many friends. In Wellington I was able to catch up with JudyNZ (Mangaroa Made) and we had a coffee and a chat and it was so nice to meet someone I had only previously known through cyber space.

I confess that the first thing I did when I got home was to give my broadband hub the biggest kiss I could muster : oh wonderful, wonderful internet connection I had previously taken so much for granted. Yes, I am that sad person. Rural NZ like rural parts of the UK is not blessed with anything more perfect than windup internet.

Well enough of all that, I just wanted to say a special and very big THANK YOU to BEV and MARIE for taking care of the Three Muses, with one Muse down, for the past seven or eight weeks and for the sterling job they have done. Thank you my friends and I promise to host the next three weeks' challenges as penance for having such a wicked time in NZ.

  7. It is so great to have you back, although your fellow muses have been awesome. And it's not because YOU were gone, that I haven't been playing. I'm working my way back into things and hope to submit something here very soon.
