I’m sure there must be a quick way to reply personally to each comment that is left on this blog, but I’ve never been able to find it.
Which is a big fat bore because I would so like to thank each of you separately for the lovely, heart warming, very personal and supportive messages you left beneath my last post. (Cue bugles.)
I keep expecting the morning to dawn – or more like the 4 am high anxiety breathless wake up – when I am consumed with depression over the ending of the column, but so far the black dog has stayed in its kennel.
I’m sure it’s your warm messages that have helped me avoid it.
You hear in the news people going through personal tragedies, saying how cards and notes from strangers keep them going, and now I understand what they mean.
On the scale of what life can throw at you, this is an irritating – and hopefully temporary - career reversal, not a life crisis, and your support has helped me to keep it in that perspective. If it doesn’t sound too cheesy, I feel cocooned in a big fluffy cloud of kindness.
Thank you all so much.
And if anyone can enlighten me how to reply instantly to individual blog comments, please tell.
PS I have added these images in the spirit of that most optimistic of songs 'My Favourite Things'.
