Just called in to say thank you for visiting. Use your sleepless nights to your advantage - blog!

And take no notice of Family Affairs. Sometimes she writes sixteen posts in a day. (Actually, she doesn't. It just feels like she does).

But we love her anyway!

Thanks for popping over to my blog.

Dotterel also means someone who's foolish, but I suspect you knew that!
