Hello everybody! After a break of, I am surprised to see, nearly three months, I am dipping my webbed toe back into the waters of Blog Ocean.
It seems that many of us need to take some time out from blogging every now and then, either because real life intervenes, because we want to think about the direction of our blogs, or we are disturbed by the weirder side of the internet knocking on our cyber door. My reason was all of these and none of these, if that makes sense. I guess I just wanted to test whether blogging was still as important to me as it was when I first began, when it was, almost literally, a life saver.
A blogging buddy had written an interesting post in which she said that a cyber hug was never going to be as good as a real hug, and she really hit the nail on the head, I think.
Anyway, I'm BACK! I was going to post the most life-affirming, stick it to the man, antidote to the thieving political class thing I've seen in months - the Susan Boyle audition for Britain's Got Talent but Youtube won't let me embed it. Here's the link instead, in case you are the last person on the planet not to have seen it or you just want cheering up.
