I just want to take the opportunity to say no, that's not the case, I just happen to have come back to Blogging about Witchcraft at the absolute nexus of a huge clusterfuck in my life right now, so it may take me a little longer to get back to the whole regular posting thing.

I did, however, want to offer a little taste of what's coming up for me over the next couple of months, and what I'll be endeavouring to share here during that time.
