Apologies for my absence

Hi all,

Please accept my apologies for not having been around of late and for not updating the blog and attending to business as I should have.


Unfortunately I came down with some sort of flu-like thing which has been kicking my butt for weeks now but which I hope I am finally getting over.


I will of course try to catch up with everything and get everything back on track as soon as possible.

I especially want to apologize to entrants for the Dear Sarah competition.  Having this decided upon and the winner announced will be the first order of business.


Hope all are well and kind regards,

  1. It is so good to hear you are getting better and coming along. I really started to get worried. But it was good that you have assured us that you are with us.

  2. Dear Kevin–I just wish you a speedy recovery from your nasty infection, which can lay the mightiest low (and fiddle with mood stability, too, to boot). You are dedicated, innovative, creative–and more than committed to the Guild you have created. You owe no apologies–owe no one anything but merely to get better. Lots of fluids and rest, sir. You come first.

    • Hi Candida,

      Many thanks for you kind wishes and words. I am resting up some still and am watchig my fluid intake.

      THankfully I am able to get up more now and to be honest whlst yes it has been tough I have kind of enjoyed the break and the chance to catch up on some reading. As an avid writer I tend not to read much when I am in the process of writing, as I don’t want to be influenced by anyone elses style. So being laid up in bed has afforded me more time to read and this had been a real bonus.

      But as I say I am back up more now and am back to writing and whilst I am still being careful it is soooooo good to be up and out of bed.

      Thankyou so much for your kindness.
      Kind Regards.


  3. All in due time. Just make sure you are taking care of you! Best wishes for a speedy recovery – Vivien

    • Hi Vivien.

      Yep I am still be careful I promise. Still taking it easy, although it is good to be up and out of bed once more.

      I have a tendency to launch straight back into things when I have been unwell and immediately to my feeling better and so I am trying to exercise wisdom this time.

      Hope you are well.

      Kind Regards


  4. Glad to hear you are on the mend. I hope the rest of the journey happens quickly for your sake. It must be driving you mad. 😦

    • Hi NZ Cate.

      Yep I am not very good at resting and so being laid up was very frustrating.

      I really appreciate all the kindness I have received and will be taking my time before really getting back into things.

      I hope you are well.

      Kind Regards.
