      Hi Caja. Sorry, I have no idea how I missed your message. Love the fact that your life has been up - hate the fact that your life has been down. I hope you are OK. I am thinking of you.

      Hi Mcdax,
      Thank you for the welcome. I would have replied sooner but been a little ill.
      Right...back to my tea and biscuits.

      Haha, your comment truly made my day ♥ You should feel wanted and welcome (we like you despite the tea, yay for tea by the way).

      If you need anything or have a question don't hesitate to ask!

      Awww...now I'm beaming all over.
      I have just put my first post up but had quite a time keeping the image under 2mb....lol. I wonder why it would not send until it was way, way under 2mb. It now looks even worse than my original scan - still, I am thinking that it could only improve most of my work.
      By the way, I had a quick peek at some of your work and I think it is super - really Fantastic!
      Now as long as I don't drop my biscuit into my second cup of tea I think I can call today a good day.

      Just noticed the little thing saying Staff Fairy...wow - I've been talking to a real fairy. I knew it...I just knew it - I knew you people were real. I'm going to celebrate by having another custard cream - might even have a chocolate digestive.

      Love and Light.

      I just commented on your piece, very nice work! And with the 2mb, if you subscribe (if you choose to do so) the limit disappears. You're not the only one having problems so I have brought it up with other staff about raising the limit a little, no promises ;) But I can suggest you to make the actual size of your work a bit smaller (for example 1500 px) and 72 dpi and then you don't have to cut so much losses in resolution and look ♥

      Oh thank you so much, I am so glad you like my work, it really makes me smile. Haha, how did it go, did the tea keep to itself? :D

      Hihi Unfortunately there is only one fairy on this site :D I say custard cream and chocolate digestive, why just take one?

      Hi Caja,
      Sorry for the late reply not been very well (recovering from bowel cancer & lung cancer).
      Thank you for the comment on my drawing - I was Over The Moon.
      I took your advice about the biscuit dilemma and had both...lol.
      Thanks also for the advise about work size I just hope I can work out how to adjust image sizes on GIMP...lol.

      Thanks again Caja.

      Omg o.o are you serious? Oh, I am so sorry to hear you've had it so tough, how is it going? *big warm and long sugarpuff and cotton candy hug of the kind that makes you smile*
      See, that is the way it should be, some indulging (or a lot) is totally allowed. ♥

      Hm... never tried gimp so I can't really help you there but there should be something since most of them have it. For example photoshop have it under edit and archive (save for web). Might be somewhere along those lines in gimp too.

      Always my pleasure ♥

      Hello Caja,

      Crikey...that hug just made me feel SO much better. I've had a few bit of bad news today and then I read your post and find I still have room on my face for a big smile. Thank you...thank you...thank you! What a lovely thought. You are obviously such a special person.

      Love, Light & Big Warm and Long Sugarpuff & Cotton Candy Hugs of The Kind That Makes You Truly Smile.

      I found out today that my 85 year old Dad who was in hospital has been moved to a nursing home as there is nothing else they can do for him. I'm going up to Yorkshire from the isle of Portland, Dorset (where I live), to see him tomorrow (if I'm ok).
      Also today, my landlady has told me she is selling the house so I need to find a new house (which is not easy on such a small island.
      There's a few other things but I've just noticed how much I'm moaning...lol.
      Still...there is always a silver lining...well a silver hug in this case...lol.
      Oh, and I found a long lost brush today...(tons of silver linings...you just have to look in strange, hidden places sometimes).

      Oh, I am so sorry about your dad but at least he's 85 and hopefully lived an amazing life so far. But I understand. My dad got a stroke some years ago when he was only 50, that scared me so much, if you would meet him today you would never know but it made me realise he will die one day.

      I do hope you get a new place as soon as possible so you don't have to have that hanging over you too! *sweet stardust hug*

      It's totally ok to moan, I'm here and I will listen, don't worry about it ♥ but as you say, there are positive things and they're always there no matter how small or big they are you can easily miss them if you don't really try to see them.

      My Dad had a stroke a few years ago and slowly got to the point where you would not know.
      Blimey...I just fell off my chair when I received my sweet stardust hug...thank you so much Caja.
      I'll try not to moan but it is wonderful that you would listen.

      Caja, you are a most amazing, rare, beautiful person.

      Think I should go to bed, got a long drive tomorrow. I was going to Stonehenge sometime this weekend for the Summer Solstice (mind you, not sure if I really felt up to it).

      Have a Super Weekend Caja.

      Love & Stardust.

      My dad was pretty lucky since it just affected the so called "reptile brain" the one with balance and stuff and not the other bigger parts.

      Thank you for thinking so highly of me, that really makes me glad you do, truly. I did mean it, don't hesitate to contact me if you need to moan :)

      Oh my, I am in such awe. I'd love to go to Stonehenge during summer solstice some day, that would be just amazing. Have you been there before on summer solstice?

      You have the greatest weekend possible and take care of both yourself and your dad,

      Love, stardust and magic,
