Don't panic. This blog remains as much of a Diana-mania-free zone as its writer was ten years ago at the time of her death. It was sad, of course, but apart from that I don't have more to say.
My immediate task for the next hour is to take some obsolete household things (too bulky for my wheelie-bin) to the council disposal point, a task I have been putting off for some weeks, but as I shall be changing my car tomorrow I thought I'd use the old car for this mundane final task. It's intermittently sunny here today, and quite warm when it is, so I want to take advantage of that, too.
