My usual is frantic

by gadgetgirl In reply to That explains it

but it's been frantically frantic lately. Mainly home, but now work is ramping up again after the holidays.

I think I better send you an email.... I owe so many people catch up emails it just ain't funny anymore. I'll group email the "huggers" at the weekend.
