Apologies for the deafening silence, dear reader.


It's been quite a summer involving some considerable bush-clearance, a head on car crash, no one hurt but subsequent legal action for injuries (Don't ask), an attempt to bend French veterinary regulations (Don't ask again. It was unsuccessful, anyway), and a panic over my book manuscript.
