I know I've been missing for a while and maybe this is a litle mea culpa to you all. I am, after all, supposed to be the daddy here.
Sorry for the lack of commenting and posting (noticed by a few who gave out to me, thanks for nothing lads!) but it's been a rough few weeks and personal blogging hasn't been at the top of my list of priorities. As you'll know if you know me I don't have the bravery of many of you to post about personal things in their lives. Maybe I can't say certain things publicly, maybe I think there are just some things that shouldn't be published on the internet when it comes to you personally, maybe.... Well, whatever.
A close family member died recently after a long illness coinciding with a major birthday in my life, a strange combination to deal with, and then the break-up of my relationship. It's all a buffeting the likes of which I haven't gone through in a while. Then what started as a few days away from here initially, became a few weeks. Sorry.
Then this morning I was in Shan's place of business and he gave me a suitable kick up the hole, so here I am again with nothing appropriate to say for here. Can you get blogger's block?
I do have to say a huge hello to the other prominent bloggers who either through comment or personal conversation have revealed recently that they read here frequently. You know who you are. If you're a lurker too please don't be! The encouragement taken from even a simple one word comment by someone we ourselves know and read is amazing and not to be underestimated. We read and comment on yours too, maybe not using these names but there nonetheless.
Mulley has also set up a Blog Post Of The Month award that we can nominate for! Perhaps pick one of our own every now and then?
Late now, more soon I hope.
