Blog PDF Volumes

I realised a short while ago, to my near-total horror, that all this work and writing I’ve done over the last six years was here on this blog but not backed-up anywhere else, at all! I know, I know … just assumed that WordPress wouldn’t collapse on me(!), but I needed to get the situation squared away so I spent some summer evenings cutting and pasting all the posts and pages – way over 700 of them! – in to Word documents which have now become PDFs.

It became quickly apparent: I had no idea how much I’d written and that one word document would just crash my laptop or make it explode, so I’ve ended up producing a volume for each year I’ve been doing this. They are now safely stored in a few different e-locations and I’ve even printed out a copy and put them in folders to shove in the garage and drag ‘round for the rest of my life. Will probably also make my son do it for the rest of his, given the effort that seems to have gone in to this … no wonder I can’t find time to clear out the garage.

  • Volume One for 2011 – also includes miscellaneous odds and sods, including the Quick Guides.
  • Volume Seven for 2017 … coming in January

  • Volume Eight for 2018 … also coming in January!

I try to keep this blog up to date, but inevitably over time, amendments to the law as well as court rulings and other findings from inquests and complaints processes mean it is difficult to ensure all the articles and pages remain current.  Please ensure you check all legal issues in particular and take appropriate professional advice where necessary.
