I have no idea where the last couple of weeks have gone!  I have had every intention to use my free time to sit down and write some posts and somehow said free time just vanishes.  The last few days I have managed to get some kind of order back into this blog and have planned posts for the upcoming weeks.  There are a couple that are a bit different to what I have done before but I am excited to expand a little bit.
