Many apologies for the absence. As some of you will know I slipped and fell a week ago and was in hospital until last night. I am now at home with a screw and plate in my right hip and a pair of crutches ever handy. A huge, huge thanks to those of you who sent cards--it meant a lot. You feel so cut off from the real world. I will get round to replying individually in due course. However, what the doctors don't tell you is that when you break a bone, you also lose half your brain capacity so it may take some time.
I intend to spend the next few weeks gathering my scattered wits.
