Apprisal

Round about the internet these days it's all about resolutions and non-resolutions - it seems the old terminology is passe. New Year, new everything.

I was prodded today to put up a new post. Initially I rebelled - I don't like posting on demand - but then I saw the sense of it...if only to inform you that there won't be regular or predictable posts at Half Soled Boots for the time being. I have received two pieces of very bad news, which I won't share with you at the moment, and they are fully occupying my thoughts.

I hope you are having a better year than I am.
