I haven't been off doing anything in particular. Life has been ticking away as normal. And it's so easy to lose the habit of blogging.
I've been looking at paintings but that's something I do pretty much every week.
And going to exhibitions. Nothing new there.
I read a very long book, though I'm not sure that I enjoyed it as much as an earlier one.
And I read a short one that was completely fascinating.
I made a flying visit up to Edinburgh last Sunday to see something stunning that made me so glad I'd made the trip.
And today the sun shone and I thought it was far too long since I'd ambled along by the river for coffee and cake. (Blood orange cake, very nice, too.)
So that's what I've been doing.
I'd tell you more but I don't want to miss the start of Downton-on-Sea.
(Oh dear, Downton-on-Sea was in dire need of Maggie Smith in the lifeboats.)
Thanks to the Daily Mirror for the funniest scathing review ... and the best Drownton Abbey headline.
