I know... no postings for a while.
I've been in the UK for the last week on business and to visit my family. The business part was successful but the family part was tinged with sadness at the death of my Aunt, Jocelyn Wright, or "Auntie J".
J was 81 and had been in a nursing home for the last two years, but even though her death was no surprise it was still a shock when we heard the news. She was my mother's older sister and only sibling and had always lived quite near us, so she was a constant figure in our lives for as long as I can remember. I won't share the many fond memories I have of her here. Suffice it to say that, though we weren't very close, I have lots of happy and funny moments to remember her by.
I've extended my trip so that I can attend her funeral tomorrow before flying back to Riyadh on Tuesday, shortly after which normal blog service will be resumed.
