I’ve been away from this blog for nearly a year, but I have returned today to bring it back to life. It has been a busy time. My main reason for putting the blog on hold is pictured below, hiding behind a fig leaf. My son was born in June last year and he has given me joy every day since then. I try to see the world through his eyes now. I have also been busy writing a book (more news on that soon, I hope).
