Only a couple of weeks ago I was wandering around the tropical north, enjoying the scenery, eating sensibly and generally having a good time.
Now I'm back at work.
I am still getting over the shock. This explains my lack of attention to A Snail's Eye View over the past few days. I'm slowly returning to what passes for normal here. (Cue Entry of the Gladiators or Yakety Sax.)
Let me ruin my day completely by taking an abbreviated tour of the past few weeks.
