Blog Snog

Let’s be open, I get a little thrill out of the communal love of blog! Who can deny the little flutter that comes with a comment, or a pingback or a ‘pin’ interest.. I’ll have to admit, I seem to be more into reading blogs, blog crawling or creeping as I think its known, than …

It seems just as your getting into spring, its already speeding past, so I marched myself out on sunday, dentist latex gloves to hand, and went nettle hunting.
