By Melanie_M  
As our friend Connie said the night that followed this: "every thing else from now on is gravy" - part of the puking pixel series Wink!!!
Apologies for image quality as battling with three monitors and getting it not quite right on any.

Yep, been away for a while - many, many thanks to those who commented and gave awards on the last - blown away by both the appreciation and the critique.
