I am thinking about returning

Nearly six months since my last post... and I have been a little busy. However, I am beginning to feel that I need to re-awaken my dulled digital tendencies. Not quite sure what to write about though, so this will have to do for now.
Oh! some news that I can share is that I have turned 40... and I quite like it. And I have lost half a stone and I definitely like that. And I have started going to bed at 10pm and waking at 5.45am which I haven't done since I had a paper round in the 1970s. I haven't got a paper-round though because papers are so much heavier than in the old days with all those supplements and advertising pamphlets. Mind you, a paper round, with all its weight-bearing elements might keep nasty osteoporosis at bay, which I am obviously much more likely to get now that I am in my 41st year.
Did you know that I broke my fifth metacarpel in three places recently? That wasn't due to osteoporosis I can tell you. Would you like to guess how I did it? Was it by...
a) beating a Nigella cake mix too hard with a new and unforgiving wooden spoon
b) banging the side of my hand on the table in triumph when I eventually finished writing a chapter
c) thrashing the garage door-frame by accident as I tried to throw a plastic bag containing some small personal items at the ultimate consumer who had called me disorganised?

I will let you decide

oooh hello... lovely to see you again.

sorry about your broken metawotsits.

I always dislocate all my fingers when I do cake mixing by hand. I seriously do. It is vile.

Hope you and yours are doing fine and I have kept you in my heart and mind all summer.
