Still here

I’m still here. Doing quite well at minimising my keyboard use, but far less so at keeping the knitting at bay.

I’ll post details on both patterns when my self-imposed blog withdrawal ceases.

Even if I need to crowbar it in. The thing is, I am going to continue to be short of time and space in which to write and so a two-for-one is useful and I hope to do as many of those as I can. Seems like a plan? … Continue readingA Month in France: Nothing is Lost
