You may have noticed I've been absent for about a week from all social media. This was not a self-induced technology blackout for my own benefit (though I wish it was). No, I've been quite ill this week. Thankfully not as ill as I thought. My hopes are that I am recovered come Monday, but life is not always as easily predictable as we'd like it to be. My birthday is next week and I only hope I'm well by then. (I remember being ill on my 21st birthday, not fun.) I'm just touching base with my readers and letting you all know I have not disappeared and I'm getting over it. Hope to see you next week with some real posts (perhaps I should start to share my Japan photos?) Wish me well!
