Not that I think anyone hangs on my every blog post, or that I post so very regularly but I thought I should note that my recent silence is not due to lack of enthusiasm or laziness! Next Friday I’m going to be having some major surgery and so I have been and will continue to be pre-occupied with health-related issues for a while. As I recover I should start to feel better than I have in years – or at least since April (some of you will remember I mentioned I was “a little” ill back then) – for all sorts of reasons, so I’m actually rather excited about the whole thing.

I’ll be back blogging asap. Happiness and hugs to you all,
