Best of The Interwebs

Firstly, apologies for the lateness, and low variety of posts at the moment! life is hectic, my daughter has chicken pox, and it seems everyone wants a piece of me at the moment, so i am stretched quite thin… which is funny since I actually am dropping weight like no-ones business at the moment! I would love to say I am on top of everything, but that would be a lie. So this will be a smallish post and devoid of much commentary. =)
