I think it’s time I came clean on the recent absence of posts. A few weeks ago I was diagnosed with Prostate Cancer. It’s understandably taken priority over most other things. This will be the one and only posting on it on this blog, not least because I’m very hopeful that in due course I’ll decide upon the right treatment, get it cleared up, and get on with my life.However, a number of friends and family have asked to be kept up-dated on my progress, so I’m keeping an on-line journal here. If you want to be informed, you can always get an RSS feed from it, as things progress. Thanks for all the kind and encouraging words, especially from those who’ve had first-hand experience, and are still around to testify!!
