Sorry I haven't been around......again.
My real life is pretty hectic at the moment, and I'm finding it hard to cope.
Now someone has hacked my bank account and run up an overdraft of several hundred quid
The bank is investigating, but warned me I may have to pay this sum in the end.
I've never liked banks and I only use mine to pay my TV licence and my subby here, so there's never much in it.
At this time I had just over a £100 in it as my TV licence is due soon, but obviously that has gone
There's never much in my bank as I live on a State Pension, so thank God I'm poor haha
Had my eyes tested last week, then got a phone call today saying I need to go back for further testing.
That's never happened before, and the lady cheerily says 'nothing to worry about'...but you DO worry.
I'm trying my best not to worry about anything in my life these days, and I laugh and joke all the time, but my sense
of humour is taking a bit of a battering lately.
I can't concentrate, I'm constantly confused, and can't seem to make any headway here on DA, there's still loads of
comments I haven't answered, so I'm taking a break.
I thought retirement was supposed to be about relaxing and enjoying life HA, that's a joke.
Anyway, sorry for moaning yet again, I just want to say I won't be here for a few days as my daughter-in-law is coming
to stay, and I need to rest and sort out my poor addled brain.
Thank God my grand-daughter comes with me to deal with stuff like the bank. I get confused and can't remember what
they've said two minutes after they've said it. Oh the joys of getting old haha
See you all when I come back, and I will answer these journal comments then. Sorry to be soooo slow
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
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
