As suggested by the title, apologies for my absence from this blog in recent days. I’ve been dealing with conjunctivitis, head cold, severe sore throat and (new today!) a flare up of the excema in my ears. The woolliness of my brain combined with impaired vision caused by the conjunctivitis have made reading and using the computer a bit challenging. It’s also been quite hard to put together a cohesive sentence (my poor mother will attest to this, the couple of times I’ve tried to carry on a conversation with her recently!) which doesn’t make for good blogging. Anyway, hopefully the doctor will offer me a ‘miracle cure’ later today and normal service will resume soon.
Thank you for all your recent comments; I will do my best to reply to them all when I have achieved a little clarity in my mind!
