(please note: after the dust has settled I will be HAPPY to talk “the process” with any of you who has questions, that means you at thefirstgates, especially you)

What was I saying? Oh, yes. When the demons of DIY plague your every waking moment, and even your sleeping ones, remember there are always friends and technical support, and worse case scenario? Indulging in cake is a form of stress management.

photo(4)I hope to have many things sorted by the end of the day, Friday, and if I owe you an email or you’ve been kind enough to leave me a comment, I will be replying soon. Soon-ish. Probably Saturday. xox, V
