Apologies if you have been trying to contact me over the past few days – I’ve not been keeping up with email because I’ve been feeling ropey, and it turns out that I have a quinsy. As I am used to feeling ropey, and have never had any sort of tonsillitis before, I had no idea that this was what was going on. Anyway, it’s back to bed with me.

PS this post is about me – Kate – not Bruce.
