  1. Hi there. This site is from WordPress.com it’s very easy to use. The theme I choose is yoko but there are plenty of free designs to choose from. Good luck with your blog let me know how you get on. Monique

  2. Thank you for your comment. I recently changed the theme and haven’t heard any bad feedback so far but what I did notice the other from using a different computer that the picture does take up a lot of space so when you change pages you won’t know until you scroll down as you just see the picture so will have to correct that soon. I just use the themes from WordPress which is simple to use so unfortunately I don’t know too much about web design I am quite new to this.
