Happy New Year (eventually)
Welcome back. My apologies to anyone still out there for the lengthy silence over the Christmas and New Year period. I spent the holiday in North Wales in the glorious Llyn Peninsular and had every intention of posting regularly but the remoteness of the location proved too much even for the wireless mobile technology. Well, that's my excuse. But I did get to walk on a wild windswept beach on New Year's Day - there are few better ways of blowing away the excesses of the night before and setting yourself up for the year to come.
Apologies also to anyone who noticed a few oddities with both the website and the blog over the break. Once again, we seem to have been beset by some human gremlins who, for some unfathomable reason, have decided that it's worth hacking into the site from time to time. I'd have thought that any self-respecting hacker would be busy trying to infiltrate the CIA or MI6, but it seems not. Anyway, all back to normal for the moment, though I'll need to replace and correct some of the content on the website so please bear with me.
And, for what it's worth (probably not much), I will be back very shortly with some thoughts about the past year and perhaps also about the year to come.
