  1. Hum, thanks, I think. Now I have to look for other small blogs as most I follow do not meet that criteria. :(

  2. I confess I didn't get to 11. I don't mind answering questions but I'm not keen on passing them on. I hope it'll be fun and no one will take offence.

  3. Fun Fun, I'll post mine tomorrow! :o)

  4. Thank you for tagged me :)
