Just when I get back into blogging again, wham bam someone steals my laptop in France! The laptop gets replaced and wham bam the internet turns awkward! It gets fixed and then in sneaks Christmas and New Year to occupy my attention. So here I am back again after all that, hoping for a smoother ride for a few months! There may be some catch up from the last few months – this is as much as anything a record of family life for us. Is the effort of blogging worthwhile? Well, Bertie and I still look back and smile at the Going Gwada blog and recall moments that would have been lost without it so I guess the answer is yes! And if it provides interest or amusement for you dear long suffering readers in the meantime, hurray!
