Sorry for the prolonged absence, well it was less than a week actually but folk seem to have been worried. We have been extremely busy with end of year business financials, house-sitting arrangements for our holidays and lots of sorting for a table top sale that we did yesterday, and there has been a death in the family. Not a very close relative, but a much loved one that we lost in a way to Alzheimer's a couple of years ago. It does make you stop and ponder life though doesn't it.
