Another makeover???....well this time ...no cupboard or crafting project....it is in fact a blog make-over!

You probably noticed that I gave my blog a bit of a "once-over" a couple of weeks back, although it is only now that I have had a chance to write a post about it...or as a matter of fact ...about anything else...lol. Apart from my little plug on Tuesday about the crafting sale we have on at work I have been a bit quiet in my own little "blogland"...lol

Perfectly prim and much less boring! Til next time .... Chris x
