Really sorry for the neglect!

Dear Bubble Friends!!

I am really very sorry for neglecting you all so much. So much has happened over the last months and I just had so little time for myself. Unfortunately, I neglected everything and everyone else in order to get things in order. I feel most terrible about my groups as I am not usually one to disregard my responsibilities.

I just cannot keep up with everything nowadays and the only thing I can do is to leave my groups up to those wonderful friends who carried on, regardless, despite my neglect.

Love and hugs to all
Your very humble friend

    Hi Avril Lekker somer daar by julle terwyl ons bibber van die koue! Geniet die buitelug en al die uitstallings!!!

  • Ai, dit reen maar ook hopeloos te veel vir ’n lekker somer hier, maar ons is baie dankbaar vir die mooi dae. Moet hard werk om by te hou met die ekonomie deesdae… vreeslik baie dankie vir jou mooi woorde!

    Avril, it is so nice to hear from you. I truly miss seeing those gorgeous Irish landscapes of yours. I can only speak for myself when I say that as wonderful a place as RB is for artistians, if they have RB as a main priority in their life, then they have their priorities in the wrong order. Look after yourself, and we’ll see you when we can. Hugs

  • Awww thanks Jim… that is so sweet of you and yes, nowadays priorities are pretty much bordering on survival. I hope things will improve soon for all of us.

  • Thank you sweet George, for understanding and for being there to hold the fort. I will upload new work as I can and it seems hard to believe that there is scarce time to do even that nowadays. Hugsxxx
