Well, after being absent for some time, devoting most of my time to my university studies - which are going marvellously well, thank you - I return to bring my blog up to date and find that all my photographs are gone and there is that nasty black circle.
A quick search reveals that this is happening to hundreds of bloggers. What on earth is happening? Who knows. Various solutions have been suggested, but none seem to work. Hopefully somebody at Blogger will actually take note of the fact that there is a serious issue and will do something about it.
In the interim, not much point in posting about beautiful France and the canals without being able to adorn the post with photographs. I'll be back once the powers that be get things sorted out.
