Blogging will be slow for a while.

Sorry, Blogging will be slow for a while. My Dad is ill and I am going to be in Yorkshire for a while.

UPDATE:

Thank you for all your kind comments. When I went up to Yorkshire on Sunday I was expecting to say goodbye to my Dad. He went into hospital a couple of weeks ago with poor circulation in his legs, but he developed pneumonia which has caused some strain on his heart and reduced his kidney function. Thankfully by yesterday afternoon he was sitting up and chatting and the doctors think he now has a good chance of making a decent recovery. However he will now need to stay in a nursing home when he finally leaves hospital. The good news is that it will be a home down here in Gosport so I will be able to see more of him.

Thanks again

Steve.

I echo what others have said. Been there, and all that, so am empathic (if that's the right word -- I think so).

Couldn't think of a better place to go - north riding?

Belated sympathies but things sound very hopeful.

Much better news than might have been the case. Good to hear.
