I'm off shortly, catching up and similarly festive stuff. In the meantime, another smidge of good news.
My talented blogging grandfather, Mr Kitchentable, having evidently lost inspiration at present -- a loss, it has to be said -- he has dug out his fine tale of 'The Dog Who Hated His Name' and begun posting it again over at his blog. He started yesterday. It's worth following, trust me. I've read it in the flesh, as it were. I reckon it's definitely publishable, too.
Still, have a read, and judge for yourselves.
