So, Yes, I’m Back

As those of you who know me ‘offline’ (that is, in real life) will be painfully aware, most of my brainspace has been occupied over the last 12 months with the prospect of moving house. To cut a (year-)long story short, it was tiresome and stressed, and made infinitely worse by 90% of the people we were dealing with seeming to be about as helpful as this:

And for those of you who only know me from my writing work will be aware, I’ve hardly been prolific as a result.

The Reason Why I’ve Gone Quiet Is Also The Reason I’ve Started To Wonder If It IS Possible To Have Too Many Books

So I’ve gone all radio-silent again, but that’s because I’m in the midst of a housemove.

So I’m rather nomadic and untethered at the moment, but as soon as I get a bit more settled (into, hopefully, a very lovely new home with the very lovely Mrs Soanes), I’ll be back on a more regular basis (regular readers may recognise this promise from its previous appearances since 2010 or so).

Until then, hope you’re well, and that wherever you are, tea and friends aren’t far away.
