I've just about caught up with everyone's news up, and while I was reading through all your posts from last week I discovered I'd been tagged. Twice. By my friends Mariel and Sarah. So, I am now going to do both back to back. And seeing as Mariel tagged me first, I guess I will start with her. I am not going to tag anyone, but invite anyone who wishes to respond to this. Enjoy!
