  1. Ah Facebook is frustrating - so much effort now just to have a handful of your followers being able to see posts. More hours in the day and more energy would always be nice. So glad that your hubby is recovering well, sorry to hear you've been ill and hope you feel better soon.

  5. Totally feel you on needing more hours in the day. I've all but given up on facebook. Twitter and Pinterest are where all the fun happens anyway.
