Hi Folks it's me again
As a way of explanation t0 those like Gledwood who suggest I use the computers at college to post my blog. As I depend on a lift from J to get to and fro from college I am unable to stay outside tutorial time to post as it would mean missing my lift any time I have to spare in a lunch hour I have to spend typing up assignments and doing research.
I will try to get my pc sorted out as soon as I can but at the moment I have no income at all while my (hopefully) benefits are being sorted. I have explained the situation to one of my tutors and she has said that she will do all that she can to enable me to finish the course. All assignments done and handed in now...just have to wait for the last three to be marked....then revision for exams in May!
This afternoon is our last IT tutorial and luckily I have finished all my work so our IT tutor has said I can have a play about on this computer to do whatever I my chance to do this post.
Many thanks to all my dear friends who sent emails in memory of the Day Mick passed away...the family and I were deeply moved by all your kind thoughts. We carry on the best we can...always remembering the words of one wise blogger

Great that you are back on line albeit just for your lunch hour and that you are going 'great guns' with the course you are on.

I am sure the May exams will go well and you will pass with flying colours

Glad to know you are up and around although really busy

Mauigirl said...

Forte indeed, Ruth - so sorry I missed the anniversary of Mick's passing; I knew it was in the spring but I had forgotten the date. I still remember exactly where I was when I read your post that sad day.

I hope you will work everything out with your finances and still be able to finish your course.

I am thinking of you and hope you get your PC back in working order soon - we miss your lovely garden pictures!

My Dear Friend Ruth,
I don't know if you will see this, but after you appeared for me in woophy on Wednesday and then Ani appeared in the Flames at exactly the same time, after Auds mailed me a few days before, I realised today that it was like a sign that is time to "come home", it felt as if you all picked up some spirit cry from me. And I guess that woophy isn't the place for me to express what is happening. Not least because it is open to too many "unconnected" visitors, with their "nice", Beautiful" and 5. And even more not least because I have lost it, photographically speaking.
I need that intimacy again now, with the space to write as I want to, or need to. I will invite the woophy friends who matter most and we shall see. You detected that something is not well in my domain. Far from it, but I will try to explain soon in the Flames. I hope you can keep an eye out for it.
Meanwhile, be well. Be very, very well.
Love, strength

I was wondering if you would be open to selling advertising on your blog. Please get in touch with me if interested. I could not find an email on your site which is why I am using this form. Please feel free to delete this comment.
