Eagle-eyed visitors may have noticed a shortage of images around these here parts of late.
They may have also noticed a considerable shortage of my appearances around Blogland as well.
For these I apologise.
I mean, how many photos of ducks can you put up with? Or dreadful attempts at watercolour painting? Or depressing rhymes? I know that with bloggers being bloggers, these can go into the millions. We all love a good duck, a nice splash of colour and a meaning

I’m writing this, my 1,777th post, on my computer connected to the internet. All is fine and dandy. To post it, I have to try to post it here, which will fail, and then go to my mobile phone connected to a different network, access the drafts and post it from there.
Thinking it was my router that was the problem, I nipped out and bought myself a new one, which wouldn’t configure as there was no internet connection, so I connected everything back to the old router and I can connect OK, just not post.
So it seems I’m working on reduced power.
I think this may be what was causing all of the problems I’ve experienced intermittently on and off for the past few months; problems which I started to blame on Windows 10 (so I reinstalled the system on more than one occasion and everything seemed OK for a while, and then it went haywire again.)
The ultimate test came when I tried a broadband speed test. Download was very slow, and upload received a connection error every time. And, I need to upload an image to WordPress. I also need to upload a post… so if they’re failing, I’m not off to a very good start.
I’ll persevere. I have 2,000 posts to reach by New Year’s Eve, and I’m going to do that, by Jiminy.
Things may be a little slow. But one step at a time, we’ll get there.
So now, let the fun begin again…
