On a personal note: I am taking a few weeks off - to get over a lingering cold and to un-tire myself hopefully.

As a sign of universal approval of this decision, I lost my phone yesterday. I left it somewhere and the person who picked it up tried to use it, thereby disabling it. I suppose the attempt at using it would constitute theft... so it is off to the police station today. Oh joy.

Yes you can still ring my number, but I won't get your message until a replacement phone is organised. Email is best if you need to get hold of me.
