INFORMATION
I am British, but reside in a parallel world filled only with things I like to spend time on. Extremely few people penetrate into this world.
Today (16th April 2020) after one month of lockdown, with at least another month (and probably longer) to go, I face a second logical moment of deep thought about the year. I shall adjust my resolutions not only according to my own capacities and desires, but also to encompass conditions imposed by the Government. Of necessity, now comes a time of down-scaling, and increased learning and tolerance.

Katherine M. Kean: I am in England for 4 weeks!!! I arrived very late, but tomorrow will be present opening time if we have a good day... so there will be photos (barely promoted), so could those who see this thought please tell the others - I know I should do it, but the amount I have to get through is unbelievable, so I don't see it happening as I would have liked it to. Love Katherine xx

    sandramitchell: Welcome to England, Katherine. Sorry we couldn't give you some nicer weather! I hope you enjoy your stay.

    Katherine M. Kean: Thank you Sandra. I'm not allowed out beyond the garden other than to walk to the pharmacy to get supplies to deal with medical emergencies, so the weather is not a factor in life at the moment.

Katherine M. Kean: A big thank you to Sharon Nolen who has taken the time to translate 'Yvonne' into the Queen's English. This translation can be found in the author's notes beneath this story

Katherine M. Kean: I am drownng under 160 unread messages every morning. I am going to clean house and start afresh. With regret, I will remove from my "followers' list all those who are not my fans or who never review my attempts to write. Sorry, and sorry if you are removed by error - just drop me a line in that case.

Katherine M. Kean: Do you remember the book for my mum's birthday? The response has been fantastic, thanks to you all. I've been winding it up this week (hoping to get to see her soon) and found a last chapter from Lucy de Welles - not many of us saw it yet, but it deserves a read, it's such a fun one!

    Katherine M. Kean: Thank you Phill and Helen. I intend to be very wise, and put even more commitment into this than I did into NaNoWriMo in November, as I have zero work committments in January (I think putting that info into the application might have helped in the choice)

    Katherine M. Kean: thank you to the committee who gave me extra time to correct my inability to count to five, and to those who voted for this poem, making this result possible.
    I am especially grateful to Gypsy Blue Rose, Humpwhistle, and Lancellot for their invaluable input and suggestions that made the final version so much better than the one I originally proposed. I could not have finished second without them.

    Katherine M. Kean: I want to thank those who voted for me, and made this possible.
    I am also particularly grateful to the reviewers who advised me concerning the vagaries of my SPAGs, and especially SallyO who by discussing a plot problem revealed a serious lapse in tense consistensy, and giraffmang who took things further in this vein (unfortunately I haven'tyet had time to deal with his invaluable suggestions, so the errors in this version are all my own - but I will get onto it before I let it out to air again)
    Thanks to you all
