I did not want January to come and go and to not have posted at least once, hence this post. I have had quite a busy year already; for a good few weeks (starting over Christmas, really) I have been quite unwell which has culminated in a nasty chest infection and the loss of my voice.
The voice is starting to return (still not Skype ready, but close); I'm feeling much better and I'm on my second lot of antibiotics to clear the infection.
Obviously, whilst I have been away from work no-one has been busily filling in for me, so all the work still needs to be done - which is the real reason for the lack of posting, I have been desperately trying to catch up without making myself worse.
Normal service will be resumed in February, that's the plan anyway.
