Howzit, 2011.

I composed the perfect post in my head at 3am this morning, explaining my long absence and detailing my adventures since the last post, along with some sage wisdom for 2011. But I woke up and I'd forgotten it all, so you're stuck with this post.

Hello blog. Hello readers, if there are any of you still hanging around.

Happy belated Christmas, New Year's and assorted other holidays. I missed you. But I enjoyed going cold turkey for awhile and switching off from all things electronic (some by choice and some not, like my phone that has suddenly stopped receiving sms. Thanks, Vodacom. You still suck.),

I don't know where to start, so I'm not going to really. I'm just leaving this little note here and then heading off to delete all the spam in my inbox. How is it that the spam never stops, even when all other mail ceases for the silly season?

At some point I'll also start making in-roads into the ridiculous number of items in my feed reader, but no promises that I'll catch up this week.

And, while I'm in my I'll-try-to-be-better-at-admin-and-keeping-in-touch-and-pretty-much-everything-else-in-2011 mood, in between rearranging the furniture, colour-coding my calendar and sorting out my paperwork (I do this unsuccessfully every January), I'm also investigating new phones (my contract is due for renewal) and considering the Cell-C Whoosh stick for mobile internet. So if any of you have any thoughts, recommendations, accusations of abandonment or anything else to say, please do leave a comment and kick off my blogging year to a good start.

Thanks. It's good to be back.

I have just played catch-up on your blog and I was wondering where you were!
So apart from the electronic drama, did you have a good holiday?
