  • emails

  • I apologise if you are still waiting for a reply to an email that you've sent to me.

  • I've spent a lot of time over the past few days preparing a talk that I'll be giving to the Museum of Edinburgh on 4 Feb, and taking photos around the Royal Mile for this talk.  (I'll add the talk to the Edinphoto web site on 4 Feb.)

  • So. over the past 11 days, I've only been able to spend about 27 hours replying to emails.  I'm sill reading all the emails as they arrive and replying to any that seem to be particularly urgent and some of the others that can be easily answered.

  • I'm putting the others aside to be answered as soon as I can find the time to answer them, but that's going to take me a while as I now have 337 to answer!   I hope to start to catch up again after 4 Feb.
