I have been. Oh yes. For weeks. But it's not just from the blog - I've actually been AWOL. I've been to Bangladesh for two weeks, Istanbul for a conference and Arundel for a mini-break. I'm also working on two projects, have a ton of academic writing to do and am generally very busy, and the blog has been pushed to the back of my "to do" list. Added to that, a failing Macbook hard drive means I'm currently unable to upload any photos of my adventures, acquisitions or makeup.
BUT my new hard drive is here, as are the tools I need to fit it, and I just need a spare day to tear my hair out over macrumors tutorials to get to grips with the procedure. Wish me luck!
I hope to be back with you all very shortly.
