Back to civilisation, as we know it.

I have to say, after initial reservations and panic attacks about abandoning the computer for so long, a week away with no TV, internet, cell phone reception, newspapers or other trappings of modern life was bliss.

I will regale you with tales of my holiday in a day or two when Hubby flicks through some photos to decorate the post with. (My computer doesn't deign to talk to such underlings as cameras and won't allow itself to be sullied by CDs or DVDs)

Naturally I came back to a mountain of email, including a number of kind invitations to spend my money on all manner of sexual gadgetry.

I also came back to this from good ole' Peter Rozovsky at Detectives Beyond Borders. He has valiantly responded to my SOS for recommendations of crime fiction that never seems to grace our antipodean shores. Good on you, Peter!

I take two holidays a year, and I've never return to find solicitations to buy gadgetry of any kind.
