But the good news is that I've been enjoying these games so much I'm definitely going to complete the originally planned series of battles (four in each region), just over a slightly longer timescale than before.
And I had planned to write more here about what I've been doing this week, but right now I'm on full-time family duty, with my Dad out for the count with a V&D bug, and only tonight my mother's health and behaviour took a serious turn for the worse. On top of that, I've just woken up 03:30 GMT and been rather spectacularly sick myself. The next few days promise to be frantic and singularly unpleasant, so don't be surprised if there are no postings for the next week or so. Normal Service will be resumed shortly.
