Thank you for all the enquiries. Had to spend longer in hospital than expected but all is well that ends well and I am back home now. Blogging starts soon.
Normally they just happen. This one is being announced. Blogging is being suspended for a week or so as I deliver myself into the hands of the NHS tomorrow morning (at 7 a.m. - ouch) but hope to be out of the hospital by the end of the week. I shall spend some of my time there working on that long piece comparing Sir Harold Nicolson and Sir Henry "Chips" Channon both of whose diaries I re-read in the last couple of weeks.
