And that’s all I’ll say about her.
It is the 31st. of May and I have not written a blog post since 24th April. That is the longest time without a regular post since 2010 when I began writing Brother Lapin’s Pilgrimage from which this blog continued five years later. There is no particular reason for the recent silence. I have been busy on a long list of practical projects; and also caught up in the continuing soap opera which is the dismal state of the United Kingdom these days and playing my part in the deliberate and systematic sabotage of Brexit, which I see as a patriotic duty; plus I am now quite simply enjoying my retirement now that I am in the second year of it. The garden and the birdsong are more appealing than the internet, which is as it should be.
Things can go slower now, without any need to apologize for the fact! Today I happened to notice it is the end of the month and looked at the stats for the blog. I was very surprised to find that the stats are booming, with up to eighty hits per day. The hits included one from Nepal: presumably from a climber bored in the queue for the summit of Everest.
Let’s try and persuade Rubí donkey to write a blogpost for next Tuesday. Till then, have a good weekend.
Update, Saturday 1st June:
To give you a flavour of what I mean about “the dismal state of the United Kingdom these days,” here is Jeremy Hunt the Foreign Secretary doing what he does best: making a total arse of himself.
