Many, many apologies to all my blog friends concerned that something even worse had befallen me. Generally speaking, I have been simply too busy.
In an attempt to summarise and allay any further fears:
I had a caravanning holiday;I am very busy in my current two jobs;
I have another two jobs; three if you count the Money Programme inspired foray into the world of Avon (oh and I'm now a parent governor again);
I have been to London with Surrealo Son on a course called Informed and Influential for "young people". He had a fantastic time, was interviewed by the local rag and I spent the day at the V&A;
There was another dogbite incident requiring hospital treatment and consequential putting down of old friend;
Subsequent interest from School;
Nativity and School Fayre and lots of meetings;
Not a stroke in sight.
Oh and a fight with an american woman over ebay but apart from that nothing much on.
To all my very good and faithful friends, sorry for worrying you: I'm a very lax and bad blogger.
