Having somehow lost my phone departing the tourist coach yesterday, whilst currently on holiday in Slovenia, I come to you from my hotel's communal computer - lacking both an at sign and an apostrophe, which I have to copy and paste, whilst also boasting a QWERTZ keyboard layout, as opposed to my familiar QWERTY. This is but the first of many unforeseen and unfortunate factors contributing to what I will now define as this week's blogging no-show.
I had anticipated a relaxing and inspired blogging opportunity in the temperate Slovenian evenings, overlooking Lake Bled, yet the failure to even ascertain a laptop has hindered any attempt at such an ambition. I certainly attempted, with my slight physical force, to force my laptop within the minuscule EasyJet-restriction suitcases that define any such trip to Ljubljana Airport, but it would have meant sacrificing the holiday essentials on what I now realise was a thankless task, as I would not have had the time, nor the mental capacity, in the evenings as standard. I'm sure you can understand and sympathise with my plight - restricted to Slovenian-narrated sports channels or Sky News as the only bearable technological, let alone televisual delights -, so, until next Saturday, I will, with a heavy heart, have to bid you, as the sustaining factor to my indulgent passion, adieu. Normal service will soon resume, but for now I wish you all the best of weeks as I strive to rearm myself with a new phone upon return to Blighty and return refreshed for next week.
