Got a letter today.
First of all she says thanks to Con for relaying what she wrote in her letter to him. Furthermore she sends greetings to the rest of us (well, probably not me, since I already got the letter :D) and says she missed us.
Congrats to mad for holding the torch, too, and thanks to del for her purple vibes.
Unfortunately her laptop seems to be broken due to a drop from the sofa to the floor. As far as I understood, it was partly repaired, but there's still trouble with her internet access, which has nothing to do with the laptop per se, but with the password her ExAss seems to have put on it. She can sometimes use her son's computer and indeed created a new account here (Broccolee in space) and hoped Jason or Tony would send her password to the email address she registered this one with. However, somehow the login (whether for Broccolee in space or Broccolee remains unclear) does not work.
I'll send a PM to Jason later with the email of her son so perhaps he can create a new password for Broccolee and send it there.
Apart from these issues, she's as busy as a fly with a blue bottom, and no mistake. Her ExAss lives up to his "name" and keeps pestering her (and the children, which he seems to be entitled to have contact with). :(

Anyway, as far as I understand it I'm supposed to send HUGS to all.

Glad to hear something about her! I'm sorry about the laptop and about the Ex, but glad she's doing fine apart from that!

Thanks for the info, CB!
Listen.

Yes, it'll have to be Jason as I can't do anything with passwords.

Let's hope it works. :)

So glad you heard from her CB, thanks! Hope she's able to get back online soon, and hope the other problems get better. Lots of positive thoughts heading her way!

I changed her password but the email address listed against her account is full and won't accept the message I sent her to let her know the new password.

More news!
Got another letter today. Seems like I messed things up a little last time. Jason was supposed to send the new password to a mail address I'll pm him later.
She was about to visit England with the kids, but someone at the consulate was a bit slow and it seems they have no valid passports. I hope all went well and she could go there in the end.
Thanks for all the nice comments after my last post and congrats to Pip (and Mrs Pip and Harry I assume).
And if all goes well, I won't have to be the relay for the next message from Broccolee. :D
Jason, you have mail.
Pip, you too.
