What ho, what ho, what ho!

Another kind of record...
Well that's been rather a long break between posts, hasn't it?  Must be some kind of record, I shouldn't wonder.  Certainly longer than 3 months, at any rate, for which I must humbly apologise.

"What have you been doing these last 3½ years?", (ahem!) I hear nobody you cry.  Well sadly my health took a little bit of a dip again and I've been struggling on and off with it since 2018, but hopefully things will shortly be resolved once and for all as the quacks want to poke around my insides again (supposedly next month, although whether that comes off or not now I wouldn't like to say!) and fix things one way or another.  In more positive news I got engaged in 2018 and am now a happily affianced chap (albeit currently living apart thanks to the prevailing conditions - health and other issues having also conspired to keep us from tying the knot and moving in together, although these two things are definitely on the horizon once my health is sorted and the current crisis is past).  

It seems like now is a good time to revisit the dear old blog, seeing as we're all confined to barracks at the moment, and I'm glad to see it's still here and all in one piece (and not taken over by naughty hackers or some such!).  Now I've just got to remember what all the buttons do.  I've taken the opportunity to give it a little spring clean and may well tweak it some more in the coming days, so don't be alarmed if it changes again.  Feedback is always appreciated too, so do let me know if you think anything looks a bit odd.

I won't condescend to repeat what we all know and feel about these unparalleled times (except just there!) as that's not what this blog is or ever was about.  Instead I mean to pick up where I left off and (hopefully) entertain and enlighten you with vintage-related thoughts, musings and news items (if I can find any at the moment), with the odd personal post thrown in for good measure.  I have been lurking on t'interweb all this time so have still been following all the wonderful [vintage] bloggers out there and I'm looking forward to taking my place amongst you all again.  With my impending hospitalisation (and subsequent recovery) - not to mention the other forthcoming and far more welcome changes to my personal life - I can't guarantee for how long that will be but I hope to make the most of it in the meantime (lets face it, we've all got a lot of time on our hands right now!).  In the long run I hope to keep Eclectic Ephemera running as it was in its heyday but if there's one thing the last 3½ years of my life has taught me it's not to make any promises, so we will see how things go.  Pip-pip for now, though!
