The recent blog hiatus has been due to a close member of PP's family being taken seriously ill very suddenly last week.
Rapidly unfolding events included an emergency ambulance journey to hospital, several days in ICU and the prospect of cardiac surgery as soon as possible. Thankfully the patient is now both conscious and stable but the past 5 days have been a bit of a roller coaster ride and normal life was put on hold for the duration.
Now that things have calmed down somewhat, life is slowly beginning to return to some semblance of normality, insofar as anything can be normal under such circumstances.
I was even able to make a tentative return to work today, which is just as well as my 'stuff to do' list was dangerously close to spontaneous combustion. Thankfully the weather is set to be cool, cloudy and probably wet for the next few days so any temptation to spend time lazing outdoors will be put firmly behind me.
So I'm determined to get back on track and play catch up this week.
Which means absolutely, categorically, definitely NO displacement activity in any way, shape or form.
