  5. says

    Wow what a page to look at after I have been off line for a while. Just over two weeks ago we were broken into while we slept in our beds and they got away with my computer, ipad, wallet, car keys, jewellery etc and of course all my photos that had just been uploaded from off my Iphone and all the recipes that I have stored and rewritten that where going to go on my blog (which has been off line too many times to count so I’m changing hosts) are all gone. Here is a little reminder to TRIPLE BACK-UP EVEYTHING!!!!! I have learnt the hard way. I will have to come back to this page and take my time over it this weekend. :-)
