Why we've 'gone quiet'

Nuclear submarines disappear beneath the waves for months at a time to prowl undersea and play war games.

We're obviously not a nuclear submarine, but we have gone quiet for a while, so we thought we'd put up a quick post to say that we are - as alluded to already in some responses to comments - on sabbatical. The blog hasn't died, it's having a rest, but we have every intention of reactivating it once the circumstances are right.

Hopefully, the appropriate circumstances will come by soon and we can surface dramatically - splaash! - with turbines churning.

Meanwhile, thank you for your messages, notes, inquiries and comments. Sonny is very well and babbling away every day, fair scuttling around and even trying to climb up playground ladders (giving Mum little heart attacks each time). His favourite word at this time is 'Mummy carry', which is a bit of toddler blackmail which really means 'Mummy, pick me up now or I'll commence loud protestations of the teary variety'.

All the best and bear with us just a little longer, everyone!

Have missed all your witty and at times downright "laugh till stomach cramp" posts. Hope you guys come back soon from wherever you've been called to!
Sonny should be a handful right about now, just like mine! Its been a couple of nightmare weeks and there does not seem to be an end in sight.... Sigh....

Sorry for having taken so long to respond.It's nice to hear from you, Shirley. Sonny is a couple of handfuls, to modify the metaphor, and has taken to babbling and climbing with abandon. It's fun, but occasionally frustrating... but that's probably a very familiar gripe to you.

Nightmare weeks, though? Hope this isn't a touch of the cold or some such. Sonny was down with Hand Foot and Mouth Disease a little while back, and that was a sore trial.
