Surprising how coming home after a break gives one renewed enthusiasm for the neglected household chores.
This week I have springcleaned the kitchen (was that for last Spring or next!), defrosted my six foot high freezer, cleaned out 2 fridges and Alan has cleaned the oven.
I have also put the garden to bed for the Winter.
I still have not cleaned out the kitchen cupboards, that can wait until next week.
Then and only then can I say that I have finished my spring cleaning.
I have the answer as to why I was having problems getting proper E-mail blog comments.
They were just coming through without links and partly coded. Having said that when I returned from holiday, I had an admin mail from my server telling me that I was running at full capacity, I suddenly figured out what might be wrong, and I was right.
My son-in-law had been sending me lots of videos of darling little Oliver and instead of saving them to my hard drive, I had left them all in Outlook. I quickly saved them all onto my computer hard drive and the next day all my comments came through as normal.
So the moral of the tale if you are an avid blogger like me is, don't let your mail box get overloaded.
One thing I want to do as soon as I can, is get to grip with Bloglines.
I know that will make my blogging life easier.
I will get Cotswold photos sorted as soon as I can.
For the moment I will leave you with a picture of some cards I sent to friends today. Why does everyone's birthday come in clusters?
Something else I need to do, get my card stock up again.
Also a picture of the Pyracantha in my son's garden. On visiting to feed the cats I just could not leave without taking this shot.
