Wow, yes, erm, so, now that I've got that "auto-post my google reader shared items" plugin working properly, it doesn't half show up when I don't blog anything for a few days.
If I'm honest, I've not even been thinking of blogging over the last few days, what with going out on a boat party for new years eve, and then actually making some progress with the flat this week (yes, that's right, the plasterers are in this week, and the trend of demolition has been reversed. Downstairs is starting to look like a room again).
Which is nice. New year, new progress, and all that.
And if you've got five minutes, go and read the new year message from Chris Mounsey, the (recently new) leader of the Libertarian Party.
