Once upon a time I started a blog.
The inspiration came from my brother-in-law who kept a blog on the activity of his farm-life interstate.
It provided us with a great insight into his life,
so very different from our own.
And so I started this blog,
with the main objective being to provide our far-flung family with a glimpse of what we get up to,
and most importantly a means of keeping track of our ever-growing children.
In the process I have created a wonderful photo album of our lives.
Of the many bonuses created from this venture,
the best has certainly been the wonderful friendships formed.
Something I hadn't counted on.
Nor had I expected to receive comments on my posts.
Which is the reason for this post.
In the past I haven't responded to comments, either by email or any other form.
Which doesn't feel quite right.
A little like somebody saying hello in the street, and me turning my head the other way.
So in an effort to right this wrong,
I will endeavour to respond within the comments myself.
Particularly when there are questions asked.
So thankyou to all of you people out there ... somewhere,
who either follow, or comment.
I really love hearing from you, and am grateful if images of my hooligan children bring a smile to your face.
