Simple really. I've spent the past few weeks on holidays in China. I had Internet access in most hotels while there, but China's firewalls apparently cut out access to anything that remotely resembles a blog. So I couldn't even get to my own blog...not that I would have done a lot of writing while on holidays.
I'm now back in Sydney for 2-3 weeks so hopefully I'll get a chance to catch up on my emails and all the news I've missed while offline. Then it's back to London.
