Hello my friends
Well, this is yet another apology...'big sigh'
Haven't managed to get here for the last 5 days
My birthday on the 20th was fine, spent the day with some of my family, but the day after, I felt ill, kept being sick
and just wanted to sleep
Felt awful for the last few days, feeling a little better now.
I'm so sorry I wasn't here to collect my birthday gifts, I'll be doing that in a moment
I'm still very far behind and there's loads of people I haven't answered yet, including earlier comments on this journal.
I'd like to say a massive big thank you to everyone for the birthday wishes, and the gift of points from :sesam-is-open: and the cake from :razielanoyafunanya: I'll be keeping my gifts in a BD folder
I'm sick to death of my housing association, and their 'upcoming' refurb, they STILL keep sending people out to 'look' to 'survey'
and to take photo's. For Gods sake, send the workmen out already, get on with it and let's get it started and done
I'm gradually emptying my kitchen, and finding where to put it all is a nightmare, and I have a new cooker sitting in my living room waiting for the kitchen fitters.
Apparently, they're now having a debate as to whether to do the outside insulation or not. It will be a massive job, and they will have to bring lots of scaffolding and the wall insulation stuff through my living room
Plus my back window is knackered and doesn't open. I also don't relish the thought of workmen tramping all over my little garden, and I will worry about my pond.
Oh my goodness, I feel awful for moaning about all this, I reckon the stress is making me feel ill, and I'm sure you don't want to be reading about my problems, but it IS good to be able to rant about it here in my journal ha
I apologize once again for being late with all my messages, I will catch up eventually
Anyway, I'm off now to collect my birthday prezzies, that will definitely cheer me up
Obviously I haven't made any new fractals, but I may post some older work, that will cheer me up too
Hope I haven't depressed anyone after reading this grumpy update
As many of you know, I haven't really been here on DA since December 22nd, though I did pop on once quickly,
just to let you know I was still alive
I had no inspiration to make fractals, and felt disillusioned about DA. I want to say thank you for all of your
encouraging comments on that journal, thank you my dear friends
At last I've found a little motivation, but my personal life has become quite hectic lately
I'll post a couple of fractals in a moment, as I'm pleased I'm back to creating
The thing is, the association that owns my house, has decided to do some refurbishment ie new kitchen, outside wall
insulation, new windows etc' etc'.
While this all sounds very nice, and will probably be wonderful once the work is done, it is turning my life upside
down at the moment, and possibly will do for the next few coming months
It's been driving me slightly crazy already
My housing association, and all it's contractors seem to work in very mysterious ways. They'll send out 4 different people
at different times to do exactly the same job
In the last several weeks, I've had endless phone calls, letters, and
appointments being made for planners, surveyors, housing inspectors etc' to visit me. I've half expected the Butcher, the
Baker, and the bloody Candlestick maker to knock at my door haha
My house is tiny, it has no back way or side entrance, so everything will have to come through my living room, including
a massive stream of various workmen. No doubt it will be chaotic, to say the least
Anyway, what I'm trying to say is, although I'm back here on DA now, over the next coming weeks I will probably be
disappearing again for periods of time. There may be times when I can't even get to my computer table cuz most of my
kitchen contents will be piled round it in my living room
Not looking forward to any of this at all, but keep telling myself 'it will be ok in the end'
Now, I'm not sure what to do about all of my messages, because I've been off soooo long I have over 10 thousand !!
I may just have to delete them all
I really hate to do this, but I think it will be impossible to catch up
I have an absolute ton of notes, which I WILL try to answer, but please bear with me, I'm old and slow remember
No matter how far behind I get, I can never bear to delete your deviations, and as I have over 5 thousand, be prepared for a
lot of faving and running while I catch up with your older stuff
I had a big amount of requests too, which sadly, have expired, but if you'd like to re-request them, I'll try my best to get
to them soon
Well, that's about it, I hope I won't have to lose too much more time offline in the near future, you'll all be forgetting
who I am
I love you all, and I've missed you like mad
I have sadly decided that I can no longer
thank everyone individually
I know you will all understand that it's mainly a lack of time, please scroll down
a little to see "MY HEARTFELT THANKS" on this page
This is a HUGE thank you to the wonderful people who have purchased my prints or products recently, I am extremely grateful that you like my work enough to buy some of it, and I'm very flattered too.
Just a note about the mugs... my fractals (or photo's) wrap around the WHOLE of the mug, and aren't just a little image on one side, so they are very good value for money
**************************Please take a moment to browse in my shop
The 2 photo's below show a small selection
of my print products, Mugs, some Coasters,
and a Mouse Pad, all purchased from here
