**Thank you everyone **

By dianah
A huge thank you to all who have been here and left such wonderful comments . I know that I am hardly here at the moment. Working almost full time and two of my friends have husbands who are desperately ill so am spending time with them ! Life is hard sometimes..I feel we have all been given a huge knock these last 12 months. I am not leaving but uploads will be few and far between before July, until I retire. I do apologise for the lack of time spent on all your portfolios..I will be back but just at the moment there are other really important things that must take precedence ! This is one of the flowers in my raised beds in the front garden..I just love the colour. I will work my way round to you all in the coming days..don't give up on me please ! Smile

Please be assured that we all understand and that EPZ has to take a back seat at times, but we will be here for you and always look forward to your pics. When things are going right for me, I think of you and others like yourself, and count my blessings. But I also think of you at other times, hoping there is light at the end of your tunnel.....I know there is.
