The short blogging break I intended to re-charge my batteries has changed into a rather more extended one - longer than I anticipated. So to those of you who have been in contact wondering if all was well - the answer is yes, I am fine - but thank you for your concern.
Unsure when or if I will be returning on a regular basis - but I thought I owed you some explanation, rather than leaving the blog hanging in mid air.
One thing for sure, I certainly do miss you all and hope my blogging mojo returns at some point.
With very best wishes
