Many of you probably realise that “Countingducks” is not my real name. It is, for me at least, an amusing assumed name or alias. Having said that my Blog is not really anonymous because a lot of my friends and family read it, together with the dogged Albanian. In the circumstances I have to be a bit careful what I say. Anything too rash might impact on those I know and my relations with them: I’m sure you understand.
For instance if we had been to dinner with a Brenda Glennings I could not write that her main course was fairly unpleasant, but luckily not as awful as the sweet which followed it. It might cause offence. I have been bound up with a few domestic and economic issues which have demanded a lot of my time so I have been forced to neglect this important part of my little world. I’m sure you understand. I should be back to posting more regularly from now on. Hopefully. Some of you have been kind enough to ask after me and, believe me, I have really appreciated it.
For the record Brenda Glenning is a made up character,and if she isn’t I’m sure her vegetable soup with cement dumplings will improve with age.
