Hello everyone!

Hurrah!!! I've found you again. I had a brainwave at midnight last night and googled 'Diamondlil' and Diamondlil's blog came up - bingo!!

What a shame that all the reviews and posts have been lost. :( It'll soon build up again, though. I belong to another site which kept crashing due to hackers. In the end they had to start a completely new board, but it's soon built up.

Well done! I e-mailed Susan H (boswellbaxter) through her website about a day after the site went down to find out what was going on and then she graciously kept me informed when she had this one up. If I hadn't thought of that, then I hope I would have done the same as you did finding diamondlil!

And ... it's great that you did. Good to see you back.

Welcome back Vanessa - it will take a while to think of you as that.

Which reminds me: why have some people changed their nickname on this site compared to the old one? Is there some technical reason, or just a case of out with the old, in with the new?
