Just a short post to apologize for my lack of activity of late.  Not because I feel anyone will want an apology but because I feel I ought to give one regardless.

Late last week I contracted some sort of flu bug and it has been kicking my butt with more passion than a loved-up teenager!

The net result of it is that I seem to be spending most of my time in bed and sleeping huge chunks of the day away.  Every now and then I feel strong enough to get up and when I do I try to answer my emails and comments and stuff but these periods are pretty short lived.

At the moment even swallowing is an ordeal but hopefully it will improve soon and I will be back in full swing of things.  Until then  please know that you are all in my thoughts and prayers 🙂
