BIG appeal update and HUGE apology...

Hello I hope everyone's having a lovely weekend. I just want to apologise for not getting round to any of your blogs but this is the reason why.....

These are all the parcels that arrived for the appeal...this week!
I am really happy to say that the total now stands at 618 cards and its all down to YOUR hard work. You should all feel very proud of yourselves as you have done a remarkable job! Thank you all so much.x

On a personal note I am sorry that I've been such a crabby friend lately and all your lovely comments and e-mails have meant so much. Things have just been a lot harder than I expected but the dark cloud is lifting slowly and hopefully normal service on this blog will resume shortly.

Big thanks as well to the gorgeous Debbie for this beautiful card and for what she wrote inside....
And to the forever patient and understanding Ruth who is an absolute gem....
The wording on the card says 'Among life's precious jewels, Genuine and rare, The one that we call friendship Has worth beyond compare'.

That pretty much sums up how I feel about all your kind words lately...thanks girls.

Em.x

Hello sweetchops.. tis me....

Guess what I did today?? went to the front door, unlocked it and realised I only had tshirt underwear and sandals on... not a good look eh?

I'll send the cards I have to Tina as I have her address, she said she would pass them onto you... dont fret about the lapse in blog entries.. just knowing that you are on the way up is what folk want to know.

I love the little feature you have on your SBS list which shows when their blogs have been updated, how do you do that?
