I've been tagged by Jen, and to my surprise it would seem that my last blog entry was in March 2006!! I suppose I shouldn't be shocked, I knew it was a long time, I just didn't realise quite how long!
I've decided to start afresh and create a totally new blog so here we are, all brand new and shiny, and I can't remember how to customise anything! So, my slightly early new years resolution is to blog relatively often. I don't want to give myself an impossible task, so lets say once a week for starters.
Right then, I'm off to re-learn html, and I'll be back later to reply to my tag :)
