Poor internet

Apologies - I have a dire Internet connection this week meaning I'm struggling to upload posts to the
blog - I had prepared for this by uploading shots to the blog gallery but it is too slow even to link to them.

Feel free to follow the link and have a look, but I'll start posting again at the weekend!
