What do you mean "who am I?"
I haven't been gone that long - have I?
I shan't embarrass myself with excuses. It was the thought of coming up with a decent sounding excuse for my long absence that has delayed my return to blogging even further. Somehow I just couldn't get a story about a lengthy bout of yellow fever or black plague to sound convincing!
I shall simply say thanks to one of you for commenting on Facebook "Get back on the blog horse, Dawn. Please. You are missed."
UPDATE: Followed half an hour later by another person writing "You are missed in blogland! Good to see you here, though."
Luckily Facebook tells me when folk comment on my page because I'm never there either! But obviously all of you are! And the reason I was spotted on Facebook is because another one of you lovelies found my name and invited me to be a friend and it was while I was responding that my blog presence was suggested.
All of you lovely people know who you are.
So I've broken the ice and I'm back. Tomorrow I shall be able to nonchalantly carry on as if I've never been gone!
I shall leave you all with a lovely photo of our three dogs. That's Diesel in the foreground, and his 2 sons, Jem and Bruiser in the background. Diesel has been retired from pig hunting now and the two "lads" have taken over.
Diesel gets to stay home with me and whilst he still misses going out, he is getting used to it.
