I have to apologise for being absent without leave for the past month - but in Spain my blogging is severely restricted by the cost of having to use a dial up "dongle" method to use the internet.
For those of you who believed the early forecast of a long hot summer [at one time the word drought was even mentioned] and stayed for the wettest August for years I won't make it worse by writing about the superb weather we had in Spain. Sufficient to say on the night we flew home we went from 32 degrees down to 16.
I came back to a heavy first few days of work but I should be able to get back to my usual blogging routine soon.
Meanwhile I hope you are all OK and I look forward to catching up with my reading.
