Hi All,

Just thought I ought to reassure you all, I am still here. Promise. It's just been one of those weeks. One of those quite-a-few weeks to be precise. I have great plans to write properly, but just in case time flies without me, here's a very quick update on what's been going on...

Firstly and mostly I did finish my huge bike ride. Actually I've found stopping harder than the actual doing of it. I could have carried on forever (except we ran out of U.K. of course).

John and Lloyd, rather wet.

I'm behind the camera of course. I was unofficial photographer and film crew (you just wait, 'LeJog, the movie' will be out soon)

Anyway, I finished the cycle (1670.2 kilometers), taxied to Inverness airport, flight to Gatwick, taxi home, pick up the kids from friend's houses, got babysitter, changed, 176 bus into town, ran into the awards ceremony within seconds from us getting best web-site award. Very nice too. We didn't get designer of the year this time, but I'm not bitter. Besides, they are heavy things, and we ought to share them out a bit.

Back to work for a few days. I think discombobulated is the word, if it is a real word, but exciting projects ahead; Astley Clark, Burts bees, British Bee Keepers, those people that make the nice water-rolly thing to purify water, oh, I don't know, lots and lots more....

But it is summer, and I've never been much of a jetsetter, so I wizzed off to my friend's posh party in Majorca for the week-end. We stayed in the super l'Hermitage near Alaro, and partied 'till dawn (everybody else seemed to last longer than me and Denise!). I had supper with the lovely Kirsty Wark and family. Very nice they were too, I gave her a replacement necklace because hers got nicked recently! Eyes out for a rogue bee on newsnight...

Not bad eh? I feel like I need a rest....

More soon,
