All good things must come to a temporary hiatus, and I'm afraid it is the same with this blog - for a little while. I'm working at the Guardian, in the Comment team, which is fascinating - and temporary - but I find I can't both blog and come up with ideas for everyone else at the same time.
I'm not going away completely. I'm already itching to write about a whole range of things, just from my last train journey past Battersea Park - and I will do. But I won't be appearing here quite so often.
But I'll be back later in the summer, if not before. Thanks so much for bearing with me, as you have in the past as well. See you soon.
