… owing to moving house, no internet at home until I get it sorted, and Life in General in the lead up to 19th December and a respite from work, I won’t be around much, if at all until after….. oh, you know when.
I was going to spent the afternoon raking up the last lot of leaves, but rain has stopped play, so I’ve begun packing, and organising myself. I’ve got the Chr….. those seasonal cards all ready for posting, with change of address notes ready to go in once I know what the new phone number is [...]
With apologies to my Australian readers, I am now going to gloat and I shall be floating on a cloud for days now. Wearing a Scotland Rugby Shirt!! Scotland really did beat Australia… I didn’t dream it. I have, for some years, been describing my loyal and faithful support for Scottish Rugby Union, especially in [...]
Oh my. I knew my life was going to be turned inside out and upside down this past year, I couldn’t imagine in how many different ways this has happened. This time last year, all I had done was make the basic decision. Things were going to change, as soon as I had fulfilled a [...]

It’s been a really roller coaster few days, and I think life’s almost back on an even keel again. I still need answers to questions, but somehow think I’m not going to get them. I still need to be sure I’m going to get the colossal muddle sorted… but I’m much surer than I was [...]
