Here are a few links and markets to keep everyone busy for a while. I'm looking forward to taking a short break from all social media and the Internet and I've now signed off from all the forums I'm on, but I expect I'll be keen to get back to see what's happening online again! It's sometimes difficult to do without it once so much of our lives revolves around online activity and I really appreciate all the lovely friends I've made online - yes, that means you!
