It’s been over two weeks since I’ve posted anything – which is terrible, and the opposite of what a blog should be.  I have been flat-out at work organising a big conference which starts in just over a week.  Co-ordinating 90 delegates and a further 40-50 contributors, not to mention the logistics of room allocations, menu choices, and who’s staying where, has quite literally sapped me of all my energy.  Coming home has involved a quick dinner then slumping in front of the TV in a bid to switch off from work.

Christmas seems so far away now.  The aftermath of Christmas dinner has faded…
