You know what it’s like. At least, I hope you do. I started off this blog with the best in intentions. I was going to keep at it weekly if not daily. Then there was a bit of slippage. The weekly entries turned into monthly entries. And then then the intentions slipped a bit more, and suddenly I realised that I hadn’t posted a blog since October 2013. That’s shocking. Appalling in fact.
I can but apologise and promise to try to do better. Note that ‘try to do better’. I fear I may be too like Dr Johnson who at the beginning of each year prayed to God to give him the strength to abjure ‘meat and strong drink’, but who, at the end of each year was forced to recognise ruefully that he was no better than he had been the year before.
Anyway, here goes.
