Happy Christmas everyone!

Happy Christmas everyone!

Yeovil, Somerset

Dear friends, my apologies for my recent lengthy absence from Pbase. There have been a number of good reasons for this, but I hope to be back posting new images very soon! I have really missed seeing your work here on Pbase and I look forward to visiting your latest galleries very soon.

One of the major reasons for my absence has been my wife's continuing hospitalisation and the inevitable pressure that has put on my time. I reckon I've driven upwards of 3,500 miles visiting her over the course of the past three and a half months. It's been a long haul! But the good news is that she's doing really well! She just finished her final course of chemotherapy and everything is looking very positive at this moment. All being well she will leave hospital around 17th January and will then just have a one-off visit to the clinic for a final injection, which will mark the end of her treatment. She has been amazingly bright and positive throughout this difficult period and I want to pay tribute both to her courage and to God's faithfulness.

So that's the latest, dear friends. Thank you so much for your kind thoughts and prayers, all of which are greatly appreciated by us both.

I hope that you and your loved ones have a wonderfully happy and peace-filled Christmas and I wish you all the very best for 2013.
