My apologies for being absent from all things WA for so many weeks. I hope to be back on board from here on in.
A truly interesting blog from Jany today - I love the flow of ideas she has created. I have based a piece of writing on a fleeting glimpse or chance remark but I am impressed by Jany’s thoughts and think she has an informative article in the making in this blog.

If I have inadvertently forgotten anyone or anything, please forgive me. This is the first writing I have done in months due to feeling unwell and unmotivated so I feel I have achieved something today.
