I know I've already posted today but I had to post again to say a big thank you for all the greetings and kind comments about my stitching and cards, they are all very much appreciated.
Karen: glad to hear that Riley is OK and isn't letting anything get in the way of keeping Mummy busy :0) No mouse ghosts yet but that choccie spread bait is mighty tempting, so just give it time >shudder< (and DH can definitely deal with the poor things afterwards). You can find the Stitch'n'Stash forum by clicking on the link at Jayne's Attic
Claire: don't worry about it - I know all about that safe place, as there's one like that here too. :0)
