So, I survived the hols. Quick overview: shopping, The Cheeses were great though no-one quite remembers the gig, v. good curry at Spice Library followed by some fine local ale, wedding went well, super room. Add at random lots of beer, Timothy Taylors Landlord in particular, and some good long chats with friends and you just about have it.
I'm snowed under with e-mail and catching up at the moment so something like normal posting will resume tomorrow.
I notice, however, that Wil Wheaton has posted his review of ST:TNG Haven, so those of you who have been following his slow but fascinating trawl through the NextGen back catalogue will, at least, have something to read.
