Sorry for the lack of posting recently. I’ve been on holiday. I won’t bore you with the details except to say that I went to visit my mother in Somerset last weekend then spent the week slowly working my way back across the country via places such as Glastonbury, Salisbury and Winchester.
As a result, I was miles away from London when the bombs went off on Thursday. The first I knew about it all was when I received a text message on my mobile phone asking me if I was OK. I’m glad I wasn’t anywhere near the explosions, but my heart goes out to those who were, or whose loved ones have been killed or injured.
I most sincerely hope that there won’t be any kind of knee-jerk response to the bombings. I’d much rather that the authorities investigate thoroughly and provide a measured but firm response in due course.
I shall say no more on this subject because others have said it all much better than I ever could.
