Hello poppets. Normal service is being resumed - once I get through the 500-odd posts that are waiting with ill-concealed irritation to be acknowledged.

Space:
Well, if you insist.

And to you.

Banno:
I blame my genes.

Spark:
No no, we love you (we think).

The downside, of course, is that you can't put on weight even if you try hard to.

lovely to see you back. of course, i DO wish you'd stopped after "kheer: check"... Here's my heartfelt wish for you in 2009: by the time 2010 comes around, may you be at least 10 kg heavier. ok? just make sure you blog about it :-)
