Tell me why I like Mondays (with apologies to the Boomtown Rats).

Well after a very long gap I am back.  In future posts I will discuss some of the things that have been going on in our lives but as this is my first post back, I thought it ought to be a positive one so here goes.

I’m sort of back!

Sorry -I’ve done it again.  Gone a bit sort of awol I mean.  Sorry for the huge gap since the last post but life rather got in the way.
