First a very big apology for neglecting you. Get the old violin out and start to fiddle – it is a tale of woe. Some d..r..b.. scammed my computer and really set me back a month. What with the cleansing process and the misplaced information it took ages to find what I thought I needed and I am still looking for what I thought I had – but maybe not.
Having expressed that view I cannot speak highly enough about the Apple Corporation and their tech team in Ireland. They were fantastic and without them, I would still be in a heap on the floor tearing my hair out. I guess I would be bald by now.
That really was what I call “customer care” – very well done Apple. You will not get me changing brands after all their help. They were tolerate to me, caring and went to any length to make it easy for me. Yeap that is my kind of customer care.
But now I have the writing bug back after nearly two months of flu and flu plus which was “and then some”. I am now ready to write again.
Also I am pleased to confirm the 6th International Fibromyalgia Conference is alive and well. It will all be happening again on April 24/27 2015 for £220 one person sharing a double room – no singles left only a waiting list. That is almost all inclusive except your beer – good value at £55 a day when London seminars hold one day lunches with added coffee and maybe 2 speakers for over £375 day. We have at least 12 presentations and workshops for much less money. As a weekend away it is fantastic value.
The fee covers a comfortable modern hotel, great food, helpful staff, and we literally move in and take over the hotel. This includes food, bed, conference, evening entertainment, fun, laughter, access to speakers, making new friends and workshops.
We have big plans and lots will be going on at the Chichester Park Hotel in West Sussex – a good venue and the Manager Dean is a star and very sympathetic to us fibromites. I started my first FM group in his hotel about 2007 and we have been in and out ever since.
To read who the speakers are and what they will be talking about move to my jeannehambleton77.wordpress.com blog for the full story.
If you have not booked yet there is still time but hurry. You can email Simon Stuart <email@example.com> to book and talk rooms and beds. But if you want to reserve a double room and get a booking form ring the hotline 0844 887 2512 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Yes we do have a FibCon date for 2016 if you are away on holiday in April when we are having fun.
KEEPING UP THE STATS & MY SAD TALE OF WOE
My thanks to those readers who have been popping in and keeping up the stats.
To be honest I was really gobsmacked when the scammers hit me in September. Sadly they also stopped all the lovely information I was getting from NASA. I had seriously thought about starting another blog for my ‘sky lines’…but it all came to a sudden halt.
I do need to get back in my stride and this will not really be until after the conference at the end of April. I hope then to certainly post more often and I will do some research into Coproxamol.
The last enquiry line I did on that was it was ‘dead in the water’. There would be no change as new drugs had moved into replace the old ones. So there will not be much to say only rehashing all the long and sorry tale of the loss of coproxamol. I was as gutted as the next as it suited me fine.
Might be back again before conference with any STOP PRESS speakers – still one or two outstanding. Take care and keep well.
We do believe we are the ONLY annual Fibromyalgia Conference in the UK…started in 2010 on a shoe string.
BRAIN FADE – You will have to excuse the old fibro typos – down to FM. …if not you will have to find a blog where the writer does not suffer from CB. Sorry. I do not intend to stop writing just because FM stops me spelling correctly all the time. I even get business letters with spelling errors. Surely everyone does not have FM and CB. Talk soon.
