Thanks, and apologies
Thank you to all of you who emailed Christmas/ festive season messages of goodwill.
I truly appreciate it.
I apologize for the lack of response on my part, but from Christmas Eve until today (29th Dec) my email server was down, and I could neither receive nor send emails. The outage was almost Australia-wide, and it was so frustrating to be unable to communicate with people, especially at this time of year.
Anyway, as far as I can tell, we’re back in contact again. Fingers crossed.
I hope you enjoy this photo of frangipani flowers (also called plumeria.) They’re more tropical flowers that don’t often grow in my neck of the woods, though I have had some small success with one plant.
I first discovered them when I was eleven and my oldest sister had them in her bridal bouquet. The smell was fantastic and I’ve been in love with them ever since. Whenever I hit places with warmer climates and find frangipanis in bloom, I collect the fallen flowers and take them back to my room.
