Summer Dreaming

I am still here.  I lost my motivation for blogging during the summer.  My typing wasn’t helped by having my left arm in plaster, but much travelling on my part, plus visitors for a few weeks, meant that life was pretty exciting and to be honest I didn’t think about my blog.  When eventually I did, it was the eternal ‘good grief, it’s been ages, how will I start again?’ but now George has just texted me to say that I need to start again and I need pictures.  So here I go.

Since I wrote my last blog, I have
