Just wanted to mention two things....
First.....After losing soooo much time offline, I've (belatedly) found what I hope is all of my birthday gifts. If you made me a present and I somehow missed seeing/faving it and adding it to my special B/D folder, please let me know. I may have accidentally deleted a couple, or faved without realizing it was a gift
Second.....I spent the whole of yesterday with my youngest granddaughter Sherry, which was brilliant, but missing a day on here has put me even further behind on catching up
Which also means I still have lots of notes, messages, and comments etc' that I haven't answered yet
There's a lovely garden center close to Sherry's house, so I bought lots of plants and a fruit tree.
At the moment, my garden looks like a mini jungle, so I really need to get out there and sort it, then plant the new stuff
Hopefully, my new purchases will give me the incentive to get outside, though sadly this means I won't be here much over the next week or so, and also I have 3 damned appointments next week too....grrrrrr
To all who are awaiting answers or replies etc' from me, please don't think I'm ignoring you, but I must get my poor old garden done before the planting season ends.
I haven't got much strength, so it's going to take me aaaages, but I so enjoy getting my hands in the soil
What I need now is bags of energy, pity you can't buy those in a garden center heehee
I will try to pop on here now and again to catch up little by little, so please bear with me my friends
Illness, depression, birthday, and a DD
Wow, I've lost SO much time off here in the last few months, it seems like I've hardly been here at all in the last year
I'm still struggling with this stupid mystery tummy problem, then after that mini-stroke I had several months ago, I got really really run down. So when I got the Flu, it hit me really hard, and as I seemed to be getting over it, I bloody got it again !
From what I can gather, the Flu hit a lot of people 'twice' this past winter, and I was one of the lucky ones (NOT) who got the 'double-dose' haha.
I'm afraid I slipped into a massive depression in the past few weeks and lost interest in just about everything. Haven't had any inclination to create, plus I felt too ill to do much anyway, and haven't even switched on my computer for about 2 months
Didn't want to eat, and have been sleeping really badly too, which didn't help at all.
Had arguments with my doctors, plus I'm sad that I wasn't here on DA for my birthday
Anyway, I've finally fought my way out of my depression, and I'm back, although I still feel a little tired and weak
BUT, enough of this miserable stuff, I just want to get back to posting something and seeing all of your beautiful work
As I haven't made anything new for aaaages, I'll be posting older fractals. If I ever get back into creating fresh fractals again, I'm sure I shall feel like a noobie haha
I'm reeeeally sad that I missed being here on my birthday, and I've seen that some lovely people gave me presents of points, cakes, llama's, and gifts etc'. Of course, these are all mixed in with my message center which is over 7,000, or my 'devs' which are over 5,000, so I've no idea how I shall ever catch up and thank everyone, just please bear with me until I can gather any gifts and put them into a special folder. I also have over 50 notes to read, so again, please have patience with me
In the meantime, here is a MASSIVE thank you to all who gave me points and cakes and birthday wishes, and I'm so sorry I can't thank you all personally, but I really do appreciate every single gift and kind thought
And what a lovely surprise, while I was offline, I got a DD
I am SOOOO pleased and happy, and would like to give my heartfelt thanks to
for suggesting it, and also a big thank you to
for awarding me the DD
This was my DD
And finally, if you've read all of this rambling journal (without falling asleep) I truly appreciate it
And now to post something, and start catching up
OH...one more thing...I know I had several invites to join groups, and also many requests for my fractals from various groups.
Most of these obviously have expired now, and many have disappeared from my message center, so if you're still interested, could you please re-new the requests and invites....sorry to be a pain
I love you all dearly, thank you for everything, especially your wonderful support
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
on DA. The quality is truly awesome
