Doh! And I was doing so well until I got to No.4 on the list ...

Peter, I'm so glad you appreciate my helpfulness!Simon, I got stuck on 1 and 2!Old Kitty, I have to disagree. Without the internet I'd never have met you!Taryn, I spend too much time on 4 to get to number 5!
Oh, number 4! So that's where I've gone wrong.
Talli, at least you got as far as no. 4!

Nic, ;)Sylvia, glad you like it!
This is great. *grins*Hm...maybe I should get off the internet. :)

Indeed, #4. I wrote a lot more before I blogged. Partly it was the purchase of dsl. I couldn't stand to wait and wait and wait and wait for things to load, so I rarely even checked email.
ww, oh dear! The internet can be a distraction but I tend to play on it when I'm too tired to write. That's what I tell myself, anyway!
