... just to say I'll continue to be a bit scarce. Lovely elder UK sister is coming over for a week, heroically really, having only just returned from New Zealand. She was unable to make it for the funeral because of volcanic ash, but has been spending time with Az's family, so we'll have a lot to catch up on.
I'm not being so self-important as to apologise for not blogging myself; I'm well aware that even in the worst of times I do so with more than adequate frequency, and I may well post a few words and pictures anyway, but I am bothered that I am making a poor job of keeping up with all of yours, and I know that many of you have troubles a-plenty of your own. Please be assured you are in my thoughts and much loved and appreciated.
