Just a short one to let you know that I am still alive, just, lol, and to thank you all for your concerned emails and messages. Day after Boxing Day I came down with a proper flu, which knocked me for six, and just when I thought I was on the road to recovery, I got this streaming cold a couple of days ago. So I am out of bed but still snuggled up on the settee most of the time, especially as we are still without central heating. Seems like forever since the boiler gave up on us, and the heating engineer has been 4 or 5 times now and still hasn't been able to find the fault. Of course over Christmas and New Year nobody was working, so he will be back again tomorrow, touch wood, to have yet another go at fixing the darned thing. The house is like an icebox, we are just heating a couple of rooms with halogen heaters, and my workroom ( where the computer is ) isn't one of them, lol. So off I go again, back to my snuggly settee and my doggies, who keep me warm also.
I'll be back soon, hopefully with cheerier ( and warmer ) news!
Darn, I totally forgot to say, I hope you all had a great stress free Holiday Season and started the New Year well. Hugs all round!
