Oh jeez, sorry about that.
I mean... six months of nada with no explanation? It's either unimpressive or just slightly rude.
So what happened? Well, I had been feeling overwhelmed by work. I don't know if I mentioned, but I run a small graphic design business and I seemed to spend every last scintilla of effort into making that happen in crappy old 2009 so that by the time I was finished 2009 wouldn't actually be crappy any more. And -blow me down- I have been quite successful. I guess when I put my mind to something, results ensue.
Plus there is more. Despite it being dormant since Christmas, this blog has been good to me. People found me, wrote to me and despite the web having a reputation for being a place where loonies hang out, I've made one or two friends here. With this in mind I began to feel rather guilty at deserting it. After all, it's a sort of scrapbook in time. I guess there are loads of dead YouTube links here, but forgive me that and perhaps there is a way forward.
When I began the blog, the theme of that summer was that I needed to find a flatmate. So the fact that rather unexpectedly I need to do that all over again amused me and that, a rather lovely email I got last night from South Africa and the fact that I started writing here almost exactly three years ago have prompted me to begin again.
