Thats ok no worries....

Thats great it works really well and just what I was after, although now 
I realise that the archive list is incredibly long, and something that I 
never considered, and there is no way to limit it on the widget side bar.

But I have something to be getting along with til I find a better 
solution, so thank you very much!
