So, what has happened since I’ve been otherwise engaged? Everything and nothing, it seems. Pastygate has been and gone, the Govt. (which one is in at the moment? Don’t worry, they’re all the same anyway…) The usual worldwide carnage continues apace but it seems we are offered a brief hiatus as our tiny island hosts the 2012 Olympics. Proceeding better than anticipated, according to the media and powers that be, it almost stirs the blood and has encouraged me for one to make the truly Olympian effort to take the recycling actually onto the street rather than just limping wanly to the end of the path…I was even forced to play some Wii Sports with the youngest progeny, but got shouted at for winning. Apparently I’m only allowed to compete in sports that I am no good at…School holidays being what they are, I am heroically struggling to get any real work done………hang on…I’m being vociferously castigated again…back later!
