Finally can post again! It took days for them to authorise me... didn't realise it would take forever!
Anyway, changed my name here. Although I didn't mind at all with the people who found me, it did freak me out a bit that it was so easy for several of you to find me on facebook - just my name and location pulled me up. After thinking about it, I decided to make it a little less obvious who I am just in case.
Anyway, hope everyone had a great holiday season and happy new year!
