Right, now I’ve stopped playing around with my shiny new wiblog – well the decision making process on themes and layouts can be a tricky one – I will pause and say THANKYOU to Chris and Dave for all the work involved in our transformation!

Through the course of this morning I have tried on a number of different ‘outfits’, finally deciding on this outdoorsy, cloudy ensemble.  You may also have noticed a bit of a name change… still Chelley, though no longer ‘of the Shire’.  I can’t promise that the new appearance will have any affect on what’s inside… but you never know!
