Many thanks for all the kind comments to the last post.
Fortunately, the doctor told me, I just suffered a 'system breakdown'. As a result I have to start putting things into some kind of order - just not try to do everything at once. From now on it has to be blogging days, writing days, research days and rest days in between.
But I have a good 'team' around me and blog entries are planned ahead of time - with the exception of this one and the previous post (no one in their right mind would have planned that one) - it is just a matter of piecing all the notes together and one or other of the kids will do the posting.
This will leave me free to finish a short story and then I can work out a routine from there.
See you all out there on the trail sometime.
