Since the winter of 1993, a few months after I started antibiotics, I have been assiduous in making my own seasonal cards, with one of my own paintings or drawings on the front. In previous years it might have been rather a bore but now it is something that I feel I have to do partly in order to show that I'm am still alive ad kicking and not reduced to making scrappy little mouth and foot designs which I never would have been happy doing.
This year, the cards are all made and the envelopes addressed but I still have to write on my share of the cards. Why? Today it is largely because I am too busy flagging posts which I deem to be inappropriate. My main worry is that people who always appear at this time of year, wanting help, will be put off by the strange route the site is taking at the moment. Other people, regular posters, have written to me saying that they are completely put off by the site at the moment. Well, most people know me too well to know that this year's tardiness is due to my sudden deterioration. My clack-handed ex-neurologist might think I have finally fallen off the edge, but there is time still for him to get his annual card, right at the last minute before he goes to do whatever Methodists do at Christmas! The sanity of this site is more important......................... Sarah
