OK. I've been quiet, sorry. I don't want to go into a whole explanation, but things are good, really. Just busy.
Here are some things I haven't done in the last few weeks:
tell you about ISAs before the deadline. If you didn't do it last year, and have £3,600 floating around, stick it in a high rate cash ISA now. I am not registered by the FSA blah blah blah. On top of that, you can get regular savings accounts at 8% right now, so that's worth doing too.
tell you about Purim. It was great. My cousin phoned me from Golders Green to say she'd just seen a banana wearing a shtreimel crossing the road.
