Apologies etc for the lack of blogging the last few days -- I've been enjoying some post-Paralympics down time, during which I bought a new bike (although it's been too wet to actually ride the thing yet), finished a few books and caught up with a stack of DVDs.

Great stories, beautifully told. It's magical radio.
