Well, here I am, doing something that I really didn't intend to do, but the more time I spend digging about on line the more it seems to be the 'in' thing to have a blog, and why should I be different (!!) though I really can't imagine why anyone would be interested in my quite average life, but then again perhaps the bits about France will tempt visitors along now and then - here's hoping!! So ... I decided that there was no better time to start a new venture than the start of a New Year ! Can you believe that it is 2008 ??
