  • emails

  • I'm still reading all the emails that arrive and replying to them as soon as I can, but I'm not replying fast enough! 

  • Preparing a talk for Colinton HIstory Society, and adding some of the photos for it to the web site over the past ten days, has left me less time to reply to emails. 

  • As a result my number of outstanding emails now requiring replies has increased from 388 to 470.  I'll see what I can do to reduce this backlog over the next ten days.
