I don't want to let October disappear without a post. A busy week in Scotland helping to organise an 18th birthday party and now a week cooking in Hydra, have kept me away from my blog. I have really missed catching up on friends' blogs and even missed sitting down to write my own. This is the longest I've left it to its own devices and it's encouraging to see that even when I don't write anything new, Google is still directing folk towards the site. I aim to be back in Bodrum at midnight on Thursday so expect some new posts after that.
