as you know, I try to keep this blog on a regular schedule in which I update every other weekday. However, the end of half-term has revealed to me that with my present workload and other projects (about which hopefully more later in these virtual pages) I just don’t have the time. I’ve found myself desperately trying to mash out posts at the last minute more than once, and that’s usually a sign that I can’t keep up. So for November at least I’m going to shift to an as-and-when posting schedule. Normal service should be restored before too long, but right now I just need the time more. Thanks for understanding.
