Hello darlings. I'm back, but my computer went into a vast sulk at having been left alone - it likes company and hard work, you see, and I've only just persuaded it to forgive me and come back to work.
I've had a fabulous time. Poland is beautiful and the weather was much kinder than it has been in England, including an unexpected surge in temperature to 30 degrees on Monday. When walking across the main square, several of us were obliged to use our umbrellas as sunshades.
I haven't caught up with your news at all yet, so I'll have a quick browse, but I've got a meeting this afternoon and we're out to dinner this evening - darling friends, her father is ill and this is, undoubtedly, his last birthday and he's chosen us as the guests for a small dinner party.
