      You are quite right – without prodding, I would almost certainly just find myself a comfortable little corner and engage in some ‘creative snoozing’ there for a day or two/week or two/ Spring. And thank you for your, as usual, kind and lovely comment re. the illustration. (In complete honesty, I did actually rather like dance-drama – probably because drifting about to music, even if it was in a chilly sports hall wearing an all-in-one lycra number, was FAR preferable to grappling with long division beneath buzzing fluorescent lights in the classroom…)

      And, appropriately spurred on by your encouraging prod and suggestion (always welcome), I am limbering up for a blog post this very afternoon 😀 x
