Dear Friends

Blogging has recently been distracting me from my main occupation which is trying to write a book. So I've decided to stop writing blogs until the New Year (at least) - unless of course I am desperately provoked! You see with my less than nimble fingers it is a slow business, physically, typing. I don't imagine I'll be greatly missed, but of course I'll miss the sound of my own voice. I have to say I've noticed a tendency to get rather bah-humbuggy developing, which may be seasonal, but isn't very attractive or edifying.

So I'm taking a vow of abstinence. And hopefully the world will be a merrier place. I'll just leave you as an Advent / Christmas present a new song I've recently come across - which I really like (forgiving the grammatically jarring "you and I" - Back in your box, Ebenezer Scrooge! - ), as I say "Au revoir." I hope you enjoy it.
God bless us all.



  1. Please don't give me shocks like this - a blog that begins "Farewell"!!

  2. Be not afraid. I bring you glad tidings of great joy! I'm just taking a break. Enjoy Christmas and the New Year.
