MAYBE I READ YOUR POST WRONG I DO THAT AT TIME..AND SORRY IF I DID READ WRONG...
No, you read my post correctly and I read yours correctly too where you took a swipe at Jane/Jacy. It was kinda obvious you know.
Aww...Augustus...thank you love!!
I have been biting my tongue since the 'dig' on page 111 and it's pretty much a bloody stump now. I have written and deleted numerous replies that
would likely have got me banned (and I won't give anyone that satisfaction).
But...I have had enough of this.
It is not my nature to say mean things to anyone, even when seriously provoked. It's not that I can't...I choose not to. I would rather walk away
than inflict pain, which is what I did. However apparently my absence has been misconstrued as an opportunity to trash talk me both here and in
This last year has been an epic disaster for me. My daughter-in-law was battling cancer...my own health issues have been stressful and painful, and
I'm still caregiving my mother-in-law daily as well as looking after a very sick friend who recently had a colostomy and is not doing well.
This Shed was my baby. It was a story in my head that came to life, all thanks to the wonderful people who participated. When my one daughter
started having frightening symptoms requiring brain scans and MRI's I devoted all my time to her and was unable to tend to The Shed. Night Star took
over and has done a brilliant job...but when I started receiving messages that I had no right (???) to start the next Shed, with a rather broken heart
I eventually stepped away.
In time I decided to adopt the mindset of a quote from one of my favourite movies, "The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel". An elderly dying woman
helped to build up the hotel for the sake of the others involved and character Ty Burley says to her, "I came to pay my respects. There's nothing I
respect more than someone planting trees under whose shade they may never sit."
To which she replies, "But THEY will."
Apologies to all for not staying online or checking my private messages. My anxiety is insisting that I write in notepad and cut/paste here...then
run back to lurker status. It is what it is, for now.
