Everything’s coming up roses…

Assuming all goes to plan, later this week, Steph and I will get the keys to our climbing rose-plagued (white rose of course!) chocolate box cottage in the Yorkshire Dales.

That means we’ll be prioritising cleaning, painting and decorating over website maintenance – and as broadband takes days to set up (modern technology, huh?) we’ll be cut off from the modern world for a short while. 

Nip back in mid-November and you’ll find new stuff. In the meantime, have a great Hallowe’en and a lovely Plot Night.

Hopefully those of you whose browsers had problems viewing the site can now see everything. Let me know if not, and we’ll attack it when we’re reconnected to the rest of the world…

Have fun,
