It's a good thing....

...that I'm not the type to make New Year's resolutions!!  Because if I was, I'd have resolved to post more frequently to my blog and that particular resolution would have been well and truly obliterated given that I have not been near my blog since the 2nd day of this year!! There are reasons however (excuses, possibly) one of which was computer problems.  We now have a brand spankin' new one, but it does not yet have Photoshop installed, so will have to get around that somehow so I can edit my pictures before posting.

The next thing you may have noticed was a lovely long list of links to blogs that I like to visit, that appeared then disappeared pretty much within a week!  I had some great feeback from people saying how much they liked it, but also that they followed links to all sorts of places and got a bit kind of lost (hi Janny!!) and that they had only just upgraded their internet package only to use most of their allowance following lonks from my blog (hi Pauline!!).  Within days of posting all of those links, I received an email from Google saying that my site was suspected of distributing malicious software and upon researching how this could be possible, I found that one of the reasons may be that my site links to a site that distributes malicious software.  Having just posted all my lovely new links, I figured that this was most likely the cause of the warning, so I removed them all and the warning disappeared!  I am now faced with the problem of how to figure out which of the 60 or so links was the problem, and as I have yet to do this, they are still mising from my sidebar.

Aaaaanyway, if you are at all concerned about the malicious software thing (aka Badware) head over here and find out all about it and what to do if you think your computer is affected by it.

I would love to have had a card to show you at the end of this almightly novel, and I do actually have some new things to share, but until I figure out how to edit my photos without Photoshop (or install Photoshop, whichever comes first!) I am at a bit of a loss...
