Just a very quick note, to let all my blogger friends know.....I have not fallen off the edge of planet. My excuses for being absent and so remiss. Let's see! Well I won't bore you with the full litany. I will just go with the two most obvious. Jet lag is still dogging me and I will not have my broadband until June 1. But I am in the process of catching up on all your wonderful blog posts, with my IPod and little notebook with the too small keyboard for my big clumpy fingers. OK! I know I promised not to bore you with my litany. But I just can't help myself.
I am savouring my first day sitting in my sunny Irish kitchen, sipping Barry's tea and eating McCambridge brown soda bread slathered with Dairygold and Little Chip fine cut marmalade. Joy! Ecstasy!
