Just when you least expect it Summer returns! Today in London the sky is deep blue, the sun is shining and the temperature is around 27 degrees - heavenly. The grumblers are already saying "it won't last, we'll have snow in October" etc etc. Why can't people just enjoy the moment. I was so lucky to spend my Summer holiday in Spain and have had an entire month of sunshine but London had a dreadful August so this is a real treat.

Tomorrow is the Jewish New Year and so I am taking this opportunity to wish you all whatever your religious or non-religious persuasion A HAPPY AND HEALTHY NEW YEAR. After the Synagogue services we will be celebrating with family [lots of food of course this is, after all, a Jewish festival].

Being AWOL

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.
