Apologies, apologies for the radio silence: Circumstances beyond my control and directly related to my ongoing struggles forced me offline and into a precarious position for the past couple of weeks. Just regained ‘Net access (yay!) and had a sandwich (double yay!), so we are back in business. The situation remains precarious, but it is less so for the nonce. And I lost a couple of dress sizes in the process, so I am feeling more lighthearted this afternoon than I did this morning.
Thanks to all who filled my overflowing emailbox with “is all OK?” missives. It is nice to know there are those who care.
