Award Shortlist   

better late than never!

By CarolG  
Welcome, friends! A quick, if rather lengthy, upload this morning to tell you that I am still around, but not on a permanent basis until next week.
I take this opportunity to thank each and every one of you for all your wonderful comments, pm's, e-mails and phone calls, wishing to know how I was and what was happening in my life. A long story, but I am getting there, if somewhat slowly.
My biggest thanks goes to Rob (bobsblues), who has provided me with a wonderful laptop to use, to enable me to get back to uploading again.
Apologies for the lack of clicks/comments today, but the laptop is to have some editing software installed on it, so it will be in the shop and out of my hands today.
The upload today is my set of montages of images taken during April, and I hope you enjoy them.
