For those of you so kind as to have enquired after my health, I am fine. Helped by the fantastic writing programme called 'Scrivener', I am taking time out from blogging to work on my novel. At least I am trying to see if I can take three years' of scribblings to a point where I know if it is a novel or not..... In a week Julian and I are going to Mali. I may or may not be back. I don't know much right now but I am having fun!
