Back to normal!
Finally got all the backblips of the holiday done yesterday. Should you care to see them, they start here. I was very touched by the number of fellow blippers who emailed, messaged and left comments on here checking that I was okay after I had missed a couple of weeks blips. It made me realise once again what a kind and supportive site this is. Thanks everyone!
I was expecting to be making green tomato chutney when we came back but, in our absence, they had ripened nicely. The plants in the garden haven't fared quite so well, but it is surprising how many flowers there still are amongst the battered foliage!
