Huge smile


Thinking about this very happy year of posts and meeting lots of wonderful people who have really enriched my life. This Wednesday has been another amazing day. I got home, opened my email and found a message from a sweet friend telling me that Lobster and Swan has been listed as number 18 in the Times Online, 50 of the world's best design blogs

All I can say is thank you. I am gobsmacked.
