Sorry for the lack of postings!

I was away almost all of April - two weeks caravanning in Pembrokeshire and the Gower, followed closely by two weeks on a cruise with Dad. I've been following my favourite blogs on my Nokia phone, but it's not really feasible to post anything unless sat at a PC. Not that I have any news to compare with, say, Rebecca's or Debbie's. Just now I'm trying to edit some 1,400 photos of Portugal, Gibraltar, Italy and Spain, and must complete this before my partner returns on 11 May with her own batch - she went with her brother and his wife to Viet Nam and Cambodia, a kind of consolation holiday, although I must say I was wistful. But the cruise in the Med was excellent, and although I've not much of a tan, it did at least stay dry (sorry, Jessica). I'd never before been to Rome and Florence, and I did it unescorted and unleashed. Italy has won my heart. I want to go back NOW.

Socially I found cruising very interesting, particularly as I did it dressed up as a man. I think I passed as a male rather well, despite the long hair and the Prada bag - no, not the expensive black leather one, a 'cheap' white fabric Prada shoulder bag I bought at their shop in the Via Condotti in Rome. Anyway, more on it all as time permits.

You must be registered with a proper blogging platform if you wish to make a comment. I have had to deny access to completely anonymous commentators.

This blog is public, and I expect comments from many sources and points of view. They will be welcome if sincere, well-expressed and add something worthwhile to the post. If not, they face removal.

Ideally I want to hear from bloggers, who, like myself, are knowable as real people and can be contacted. Anyone whose identity is questionable or impossible to verify may have their comments removed. Commercially-inspired comments will certainly be deleted - I do not allow free advertising.

Whoever you are, if you wish to make a private comment, rather than a public one, then do consider emailing me - see my Blogger Profile for the address.
