I’m back!


Get out the champagne!

It’s been a bad week, but this is a new week and things have just got better.

On Wednesday night my Twitter account was hacked, with the result that I was tweeting links to a fat-busting product. How embarrassing.

Then I discovered that my blog had disappeared. No-one could see it online, not even me. My blog is on Blogger, run by Google, and after four exasperating days, Isaac and I found out that Google had changed something their end and not thought to tell anyone. So there are probably thousands of other people out there wringing their hands and swearing profusely and wondering whether to switch to a blog that you pay for, but which has a department of real people whom you can contact and ask for help when there are problems. I contacted an online user group where you post your problem. Someone called Nitecruzr gave me some helpful advice, and Isaac fixed it. Who is the mysterious Nitecruzr? A kindly insomniac geek who spends his time cruising the user group, helping people out? Does he get a small stipend from Google? I will never know.

The photo of me with the cycling helmet isn’t relevant, except for the celebratory drink, the Californian connection (Google), and Isaac. It was taken on one of the best days of my life. I cycled over the Golden Gate Bridge with Isaac and we stopped in Sausalito for lunch. I’m a lucky person: I’ve had a lot of best days. This last Christmas Day was another one.

Onward and upward!
