I guess I shouldn’t really be surprised that I haven’t had the time to write anything, but I’ve written lots of entries in my head that were stunning and sparkling in their humour and insight.. but I’ve forgotten what they were now, so it’s back to the usual drudge.

I should mention that that last entry was never meant to be my final word or eulogy for my Dad, I was wanted to mark his passing on here; seemed suitable somehow. One of his legacies is that he taught me plumbing, so for a little bit of today I’m going to be fiddling with dodgy bathroom taps!! His funeral is next week (3 days after Ben’s baptism), so it sort of encapsulates life and death (and yes, there has also been a wedding in the last week!)
