11th-17th September 2011

[Updated 16th September]

[Maddeningly, WordPress allowed me to waste a lot of time entering stuff here then decided to stop me posting it because of “concerns about the content”, without even saving the draft. Thanks for the apology, guys, but it’s the second time it’s happened. Between that and the clandestine advertising content, it’s likely that I’ll be using other platforms more in future. However, here’s a very quick recap of what’s been happening this week so far (as of 14th September).]
