Hey guys, cheers for the link! It's cool to be included in a list of cool blogs. Much appreciated :)

Guy and Sarah.

Hayley said...

I second that thought! Thanks for the link guys, though I think mentioning that I'm from Wigan will have everyone running in the opposite blogging direction! : )

Luke and Wilf said...

Thanks for the mention guys, especially seeing as most of these blogs are hotter than ours.

We are putting some stuff together to try and do ourselves justice. So far we hope that we are giving a taste of what we are about.

How are the workshops going? Adam & Eve are soon for you as well, good luck.

Thanks Again
