Hi and welcome to the Carnival! I can't quite believe my time to host has come round so quickly. I remember applying to host it months and months ago and now my time has arrived slap bang in the middle of me moving house! That's why I'm posting a day early because I'm posting from the library - since my oven doesn't yet work (there is a knob missing) let alone my computer. But I am putting this together for your pleasure while I look forward to later savouring a delicious [not] slice of microwave pizza!
I've had a blast reading the entries, and now it's your turn, show your fellow bloggers some love and leave them a comment, find a new blog you haven't read before, (I know I have). So pour yourself a cuppa, or in my case a glass of Pinot Grigio, and enjoy!
