My guests have left after a rather wonderful weekend and I am of course now prostrate with post-hostess exhaustion and in no position to write a coherent sentence. Luckily, Sarah has an excellent article today in The Times on the National Health debate. So I am handing you over to her - http://www.timesonline.co.uk/tol/comment/columnists/guest_contributors/article6798153.ece
Also, because you know I like to keep you on your toes, and because it is Monday and everyone needs cheering up on a Monday, I am giving you the promised photograph of The Other Dog. I apologise to the cat people.
