All sorts

Hmm. I seem to be doing lots of ‘catching up posts’ lately. Much goodness that keeps me from the typing…

Wrist, unfortunetaly, is not quite yet all goodness. I am considering another visit to Dr Wong, there is probably something still not quite right that could use his expertise to set it back in working order.

The other irons in the fire at work are also being tended to.
