Once again I see a fellow blogger post something that is a complete copy&paste of someone else’s article. I’m hoarse from trying to get people to understand that it’s not okay to do that, that it’s a breach of copyright even if you say where you got it from – unless you’ve been given permission by the copyright owner (normally the author), you are not allowed to reproduce their whole article on your own blog. If you see an article you like and you want to give it extra publicity through your blog, then post a link with a short summary and/or a quote from the article, inviting your readers to click on the link and read the whole thing.

Enjoy!!

My daughter and her husband have gone away to Antigua as Jodie’s best friend since school days is getting married out there and Jodie is bridesmaid and her husband Darren is giving Katie away. They have all been planning and saving for a couple of years, wanting it to be very special and luxurious.
So, my day started earlier than normal but ran very smoothly and I even got some editing completed on one of the stories. The children are very good, their ages are 15, 12, 10 and 5 so they all do their own thing and the youngest plays. They are not really upset or anything about their Mum and Dad not being here, as they see me a lot and stay with me…
