I'm joining in with Pip today taking stock. If you pop over to Pip's blog she's written a list for you to play along too. I could be dreaming but I've set myself a challenge to blog everyday for the month of July. I can't promise it is going to be quality over quantity but the challenge is to show up each day and gather momentum and see where it takes me/us. Bloggers feel free to join me in the challenge! Leave a comment if you're up for it.
