Apologies for leaving you high and dry for the last few days. I've been busy, distracted, entertaining relatives, getting on with some other writing, plain lazy ... yes, all of the above.
I also realised that my blog was becoming very difficult to navigate as it was and looked cluttered. Somehow I'd lost my archives, my tags were underutilised by visitors(though all point to good past stuff), and some of my links were dead.
So I am trying a new, less-cluttered layout and hope that it is easier on the eye and more navigable.
Have a poke around and let me know what you think. Normal service, as they say, will be resumed as soon as possible.
