As a number of you may know, following a Twitter post from my daughter Rosie, I have been rather ill recently.
This illness lead to me having a protracted stay hospital which included a period in intensive care. Fortunately I have very little memory of the first two or three days.
I am, thankfully, home now but it will take a few weeks before I am fully over the illness.
I, therefore, will not be creating any early morning weather forecasts for the near future.
It is my intent to eventually return to delivering a daily blog but, at this moment in time, I need to focus on my health. In the meantime I will post weather and other news as I feel well enough to do so.
Finally, can I thank you all for the kind thoughts you sent whilst I was in hospital. My family read them to me every day and they certainly gave me a boost.
Best wishes to you all,
