Apologies for my prolonged absence. I moved house on 10 August but haven't yet managed to get an internet connection at my new address. It took 3 weeks just to get a phone line, for crying out loud! Argggh!
Anyhow, I have been promised an internet connection by the 14th September, so I hope to start blogging again regularly after that.
Thanks for your patience - I'll be back asap.
