Frazzled

I know I've shown you this image before, but you see that poor old soul in the kitchen, slumped amongst the mess, with her head practically in the oven...? I think that's me....

I'm so grateful for all of the feedback left for me regarding the 'facelifted' fancypicnic.com, both here and via the web site's contact form. I really appreciate the fact that you've taken the time to have a peek, and then critique it for me. I took all recommendations on board, and modified the banner to accommodate larger photographs - and I agree that it looks much better, and maybe a bit more inviting! Thank you for that!
There are still tweaks to be made regarding little details and possible background colour alterations , but generally, I'm happy. I thought I'd trial-run this blog page in black, to be a bit more cohesive with the dotcom page...but I keep trying different combinations out.
(I won't tell you how long I've sat and fiddled/tweaked for. It's far too embarrassing!! Don't be surprised if next time you pop in it's different again...!!)
**later** And now, it's all over. No more fiddling. Ever.

Hello. Although your blog looks really smart, I just thought I'd say that I find 'white on black' hard to read after a while. (but thats probably because I'm old}There may be others like me. Thats all. Its not a criticism just a point.
Good luck with the website. The link doesn't take me there though. (Oh dear again not a criticism just thought you'd like to know)I bet you wish I hadn't bothered commenting.

Thanks, Kendall.
Jackie - I absolutely take your point about black backgrounds. I'm never sure that I like it, but it seemed to work for the website, so I'm having a dabble with the blog. I'm not sure it's 'me' though!

As for the link...I think it's fixed - thanks!

I have just popped by for a look at your website and think it is wonderful. I think the black background highlights you photographs and really makes them stand out! Congratulations, it is a pleasure to wander around :)
