Doubtful, since they live in warmer climes.

She didn't make it to con (I'm sure she'll want to elaborate), but I spoke to her and she's going to try to get on here in the next few days.

Could be she's finding it hard to make the time to get over there?

True. She was volunteering in a charity shop, as I recall.

Yes, that sounds right. Busy, but enjoying it I think.

Like Dotsie says she'll hopefully be on in a few days to give us an update. :)

I spoke to her the Sunday before the Convention at which stage we were going to meet up there and have a proper catch up. Unfortunately she had a fall on the way to (or at) the station on Friday and had to go to hospital, so she never got to Birmingham. She was able to go home on Friday but had been put on heavy painkillers so we didn't find out until the Saturday evening what had happened, by which time we were obviously pretty worried about her. Obviously she was upset about missing the con and pretty shaken up still, but the important thing was that she was safe at home and resting so we've got her goody bag and other assorted convention membership perks to send on to her soon.

I'm hoping to hear back from her later today after calling her yesterday when I got back myself so I'll let you know how she is if she's still going to be a while getting somewhere she can get online again and will pass on everyone's good wishes in the Red Cross parcel I'm sending up there :D
