I can see that it is almost exactly a year since I posted on WordPress. I would like to apologise to anyone who has been following this blog for the absence and I think it is only fair that I give you an explanation. The explanation is quite simple, yet to so many people it is threatening, because of the stigma attached. I have been suffering from depression and although I believe that I am over the worst, I still have relapses, and even after a relapse, it is still difficult to pick something up again. But I do hope to do this and post regularly over the foreseeable future. However we all know that a man plans and God laughs.
