My face is bright red with embarassment. I've only just noticed that I was supposed to approve comments before they appear and since I never got any notices, I just assumed there weren't any. But now I see there have been quite a few awaiting moderation and I never moderated any of them and of course none of them got replies. Sorry sorry sorry!
Comments are now restored, I've deleted the moderation thingy and beg forgiveness to all of you who so kindly commented. Come back and speak to me and I will answer next time. Thank you!
And you know, you can always go to my main Blaugustine blog, where the comments are working. At least they are at the moment.
