Good morning all!  Is everybody happy today?  I got my 10,000th view yesterday so I just want to say a HUGE thank you to everyone who's ever read my blog, and especially to those of you who read it regularly.  I realised last night that I forgot to tell you the answer to last week's 'Guess the Theme' - it was Shrek.  All the items were clues to things in first Shrek film - Robin Hood, dragon, castle, gingerbread man, Donkey, Magic Mirror, ogre, Pinocchio, princess and three little pigs.
