Why is Charlie not posting on his blog this week?
... Succumbing to the inevitable post long-haul flight chest infection.
... A massive blitz on the house-work (in preparation for a possible change of address).
... Working busily on a novel, trying to make up for lost time spent in mind-expanding travel.
... Nothing insightful to say that's fit to be let out in public.
... All of the above.
(Whichever of these reasons you ticked, pat yourself on the back and give yourself one point. Points may be redeemed at the cashier's desk for one (1) incremental unit of self-esteem. Normal service will be resumed when I'm feeling better/when I've sold the house/when I've finished the book/when I have something to say.)
