Current Status Of This Site

Due to the continuing serious illness of this site's owner, Bunny, caused by a devastating knock to her recovery back in May 2013, it will very sadly no longer be possible for the foreseeable future at least, for this site, (or any other of the Not For Profit sites she has built and run for the past 10 years) to continue to be updated.

Existing submissions will remain on the site, but no new submissions can be posted, and she unfortunately remains far too ill to be able to continue to offer advice or respond to any emails. She desperately needs absolute rest, and is simply physically incapable of running her sites, responding to emails, or frankly everyday normal activities we tend to take for granted.

Please know this is the last thing she would have wanted, obviously, and this continued situation has become a great source of pain to her, but sometimes in life you are just caught in storms, not of your own making, that you simply cannot avoid, however much you wish it, and however undeserved.

Bunny had already long ago made provisions at her own expense, for all of her NFP sites to continue in the event of her death, etc and for all existing submissions to remain, in her prolonged absence, to make sure the sites could continue, and to be a source of solace, as is, even when she could not.

We have tried our very best to continue to update the sites for as long as possible in her absence, in the hope that she would one day be able to return to them, but unfortunately the devastation and shock caused by the unexpected and undeserved knock she received, and the subsequent continued deterioration of her health caused by the ongoing stress of it all, has now made this, for the foreseeable future at least, impossible.

We are very sorry this is not the better and more hopeful news we were hoping to be able to convey, but we hope the existing content on the sites will continue to make them a source of comfort to those in distress, as Bunny always intended them to be.

Warmest Regards

Dee

Delay with Pages Being Posted to the Site

Hello Everyone,

This is just a short note to say again that Bunny unfortunately suffered a devastating knock to her recovery back in May and has subsequently been unexpectedly extremely ill due to circumstances beyond her control. She is currently completely unable to work on this site or answer any emails. She is very sorry about this, and please know this is the last thing she would have wanted, obviously, but she has no choice but to have absolute rest at present.

I will be continuing to try to catch up with everything on her behalf over the coming weeks. However Bunny runs a number of Not For Profit sites including this one & unfortunately I do not possess her superhuman like qualities for maintaining them all, though I am trying my best.

So, if you are waiting for a page to be posted, a diary etc, I will get to it, but this is just to forewarn you that there may well be a significant delay with this, whilst I catch up with the backlog. If you are waiting for something and do not hear from me, etc within the next couple of weeks, please contact me via the Contact Page, just in case I may have missed it.

Warmest Regards,

Dee
