I would like to welcome any new readers, and thank old ones for visiting, we’re not that old and we hope to continue to do this as time allows.

If you know of any blogs that should be included please contact us by email or a post on this or the Irish Knitting, Crochet and crafty blogging post. The same goes if you want to be removed. If you are included in our updates please mention if you want to be removed from
there too. Please note that neither I or SineadR do this as a full-time job, and allied to that our jobs actually restrict our webtime. We will do our best to get stuff done as soon as possible
but that may take a few days or hours. In order to optimise my trawling I have noted the last date posts are visible on sites, I only check every month or so on ones that haven’t updated in the last four months. Again, if you know of a dormant blog that has resurrected, feel free to tell me.

You may notice that some posts from Sundays have been repeated, this is if there is time-sensitive information included in them, this does sometimes lead to repeated links from the previous week.
