here’s the thing…

I have some health issues that need tending to, and like a lot of people, it has been easy to neglect taking care of myself for a while now.
But I really have to.
So I am not going to be stalking all of you beloved WP talents as much as I normally would.¬†And that’s A LOT. And I have done it unapologetically, because, quite frankly, you are amazing.

don’t let me bore you with my knowledge of New Zealand…

¬† ¬† ¬†(NB May be some coarse language…and I don’t mean when they quote Australians…)
