Three on a Thursday #167


5514823231_f5b161490e_oSo, it’s been a while …

What with one thing and another – ok, two of the things are the kids who’ve needed entertaining for the last 6 weeks, and another is my propensity to spend the last 3 Thursdays stuck in a field with no signal, meaning not much time for digging and less for tunes.

ImageI’m baaaaaaaaaaaack.

Did you miss me?
