Yesterday saw my second foray into the world of yoghurt making. I had intended to post about last week’s batch but, as happens to most of us, life got in the way and that job didn’t get to the top of the list. So, forgive me if this post is brief but I wanted to get it ‘out there’ before I head out for a day to the Chatwsorth International Horse Trials.
Forgive me bloggers for I have sinned; it has been 11-weeks since my last confession….

My planned series on my experience, hints and tips on Graded Exercise Therapy (GET, also known as GAT, Graded Activity Therapy) has been somewhat delayed: I have been meaning to post for days but life has been getting in the way.
I hope to get my first post in this series, together with an update of what has been keeping me away, up at the weekend.
