Sorry Folks...

...sad face time here today.  I am afraid that I will not be able to attend the Great British Craft Festival tomorrow, as planned, due to my continuing ill health and the horrendous pain I am trying to cope with at the moment.  I am deeply sorry that I won't be able to share any inky time with those of you who were hoping to come along to a Make & Take with me... things are just really so very bad at the moment and nothing is getting my pain back under control.  It is with regret that I had to make this decision but in the interests of safety too, I thought it the only thing I could do :O(  Hopefully things will begin to improve and I will be back to moving about a bit easier in the next few days.  I also wish to extend my thanks to Anne Marie at HunkyDory for asking me to take part in this fab event and my apologies to her... I really do feel like I am letting everyone down.   Sorry again folks....

Awwww, Hels, I hope you feel better soon. Dealing with chronic pain is utterly draining, I know, and it's wonderful that you so often are so up and cheerful.

Don't worry about what you can't control, just take the time to take care of yourself.

Hels dear. We were so sorry to read of your continuing health problem. As a regular at the pain clinic I can deeply sympathise and hope they find some combination of meds and treatment that will help you. As a retired nurse I know how many things there are to try before you hit the right combo. Do mail me if I can help at all.
Big hugs Janet (and Bea)

Oh Hels - So feel for you!! To be fair all the above have said it all... Your feeling guilty is reflection of what a generous person you are, you know deep down NOBODY would want you To do the show over your health?! That MUST come 1st, 2nd & 3rd!!!!
Take care with the painkillers, truly hope they find a combative way to relieve excruciating pain.

Do Not be hard on yourself, it'll only delay recovery...
