Apart from that, how was the holiday?

Well I'm home... it's nice to sleep in my own bed again! And I had a great trip... mostly.

True, I was pickpocketed on the St Petersburg metro, and lost a mobile phone (about to be upgraded anyway) and an organiser (data safely backed up... mostly), so I may be talking to my insurance and phone company quite a bit over the next few days. Which reminds me: why do they insist on using premium rate (i.e. ripoff) contact numbers that won't work when you're abroad? Apart from all the money it makes them, I suppose...

So if you are wondering why you haven't heard from me (especially if you sent me a text message) that may be why. Please don't text my old mobile - I won't be able to read the messages for a bit :-(

But the holiday itself was fine. Good food, coffee, debate, company, weather - amazing weather, actually. And we saw some very interesting places and people. I'll have to post some of the pictures soon.

Oh, and one of my teeth seems to be loose. And the websites I help to run all seem to need updates. I think I might be a bit busy for a while.

I'll be needing another holiday!

There is absolutely no place like ones own bed. I returned after a week and the first thing I did on opening the door was leap into bed and snuggle around in it :D

Well I am not surprised that coffee figured there. Kept you awake during the deep dark midnight theology discussions I suppose ;)

Gasp...choke...cough..."another holiday?" cough cough cough splutter...
