I am slow off the mark with my posts this week. If I have a creative brain I think it must be occupied with designing MasterM's business cards for Dar Es Salaam, covering letters for MissM's job applications, late meals for a hard working MrM, thoughts of spring flowers and summer holidays. You must forgive me. I am usually very disciplined about planning my writing so that I can post every day and the blank patches always catch me by surprise. I will sharpen my pencils and give myself a stern talking to - taking photos of crocuses is not enough.
