I'm OK - thank you! :)

Dear friends,

This is just a quick note to let you know that I'm fine, and I'm so sorry if I've worried you! :) A combination of reasons has kept me from my computer, but nothing major, nothing to concern you. One of them is simply that my eyes have been very sore and tired lately so I've been trying to avoid screens altogether; even this short post is being written bit by bit so that I'm not staring at a screen for too long.

I do apologise for not having replied personally to your emails and messages, but I just haven't been up to turning on the computer at all - I really appreciate your concern, your messages have meant a lot to me, and I am sorry if I've worried you. Please be assured that we are all fine, and I hope to get back into a blogging pattern soon, when my eyes are up to it!

Meanwhile, I do hope you're all well and enjoying 2012 :) Gosh, I miss reading your news and seeing your projects! I am looking forward to getting back to it, and hope it won't be long now.

Thanks again to everyone who's contacted me or thought of me xx

I'm so glad you're okay, I've been wondering whether I should get in touch or not. I wasn't sure if I'd missed something somewhere saying you were taking a break. Glad there's nothing serious going on and hoping that your eyes will feel better soon and we'll start seeing some blog posts from you again. Happy New Year to all your family. xx

Do hope the eyes are better soon....I completely sympathise....as I sometimes have problems with my own eyes and know just how much it gets you down.
Look forward to your full return.

I was about to send out a search party! So pleased you are ok and hope your eyes feel a lot better very soon. It has seemed very strange not to see any blog updates from you and you have been missed.
Hurry back properly as soon as you can!

I was about to send a mail - as a pre-cursor to the search party. Rest those eyes hun - don't want you to miss the Pass the Page blog hop on 20th.

P.S. i still have some blank faces - were you going to send an e-mail? Don't fret on it, if it's not started - i just don't want to be the weakest link

Gail said...

So glad to hear all is ok, well apart from the sore eyes. I think we've all pretty well had that issue at sometime. Take it easy. Looking forward to when you're feeling better and are back posting.

alexa said...

Glad all is OK, Mel, and it was lovely to see your link pop up in my google reader! Look forward to seeing you again when you can manage it.

Heather said...

Thank Goodness Mel! I was getting so concerned that I even checked your blog last night incase my reader had 'dropped' you!! Hope you can get back to the screen soon cos you have been missed xx

Miriam said...

I woke up thinking about you this morning! Hope the eyes get better soon, it happens to me too. Are our eyes trying to tell us something?

Missus Wookie said...

I had wondered and hoped it wasn't a horrible bug such as is wandering through our family. Hope your eyes feel better and you are back to normal soon.

Scrappi Sandi said...

phew! It's good to hear from you....I'd been too scared to ask where you were in case there was something horrible going on!! Look after those precious eyes & I'll send positive vibes your way!! Looking forward to your return :) xx

Rachel B said...

Glad to hear you are ok Mel, I hope everything sorts itself out and you feel better soon :)

Ginger said...

hi Mel - I was happy to read this post last week, but had some time to stop by to say I hope you are feeling better with your eyes. I have problems every now and then with my neck/shoulder and arm if I do too much digi stuff, so I know how you feel. Take care!

Peachy Stream said...

Hiya again, hope you are feeling better soon - missing your blog, much love xxx

Kai said...

I know you wrote this, like, two weeks ago... but I'm still worried. This is a long blog vacation for you! I hope your eyes are better soon and we can see what's been going on in Mel's world again. Also wondering about those faces for coloring... I never got any and - if you haven't sent them - no rush! But I wanted to make sure they hadn't been lost in transit. Hugs!
