Usually, the blogosphere is a friendly place where bloggers share each other’s work with transparent ping backs and duly credited photos (got to love Creative Commons as I’m a lazy and mediocre photographer).

I just found out how to make a text widget linking to my About page and I’m pretty chuffed with myself. I’ll have that bottle of wine now, please.
