Update

I'm sorry to put a damper on things, but for anyone puzzled over some of the comments on my previous post, my mother died during last night. It's not at all unexpected but it's nevertheless a sad time for us.

I am unlikely to be around a great deal in the next few days I'm afraid, but I will be back before too long.

  26. A. --

    Sorry to hear of your loss. Though we've never met in person, I feel like I've come to know you -- at least a bit -- through your blog and the impression I have is of a caring person worth caring for. So, my sympathies, and take your time dealing with your loss but yes, I do hope to see you writing again before too long.
