Apologies for the sudden hiatus to all those who don't see locked posts.

One thing is certain: family matters take priority over blogging - I've been back to Jersey for what was sadly my father's final illness. A three day trip to see him in hospital suddenly turned into nearly three weeks of some of the saddest, the most stressful and the most rewarding days of my life.

Now to catch up on the RSS feeds and the email. Don't be surprised if I've missed something you said...

Take your time, Simon. We'll wait for you. Heck, we've waited this long :)

Welcome back. We missed you, though our thoughts were with you.

Welcome back
The rewarding bit is the best bit ... my aunt passed away just after easter but spending time with her before she died was great, and I've gotten a lot closer to my mother over the last couple of months while helping where I could (my mother took on the task of making sure my aunt had carers, even doing 48 hour+ shifts when no one was available, and did the funeral arrangements when the time came ...).

You have my sympathy, and my understanding (my father died when I was 23) and if you want to talk about anything (or be distracted) you know how to reach me.

Hugs to you and to Mary, and let's meet up as soon as you've got a free evening/daytime (I'm job hunting at the moment so I'm free if you want to go do a museum trip or something)

Welcome back.
Take strength from your experiences and build on them. Look back with pleasure at good things and use the bad things to cast them in a better light.

I've been thinking of you and Mary, and your family. Sounds like you've had an intense 3 weeks to say the least. Welcome home.
