Norene back home from hospital

Phew! What a week. Norene was in hospital for most of it but I am glad to say that she is now home.

We were all very worried for some time, but although the problem will certainly not go away, new treatment for her heart problem has now been set up and we all feel a lot more confident.

Norene and I would like to thank all those who have been so patient during what has been a very difficult time. People have been so thoughtful.

Bookings for photography holidays and photography courses have been neglected while I have been either staying in Glasgow near the hospital, or dashing back and forth from Kirkcudbright. In most cases we have managed a brief email to those who booked or enquired, but some have been left unaswered. I will be working my way through things as from tomorrow, but please do contact me again if you do not hear from me.

We got Norene home from hospital late on Friday night – and I was off again early on Saturday for the Photography Workshop in Carlisle Cathedral.

Despite my lack of preparation, I think the day was a great success and Norene sends her thanks to everyone who signed the lovely ‘Get Well’ card. Our special thanks to Gerwyn Jones for his concern. Norene is very sorry she could not be there with us.

I will be posting very soon about this photography workshop with some pictures taken during the day.

Meanwhile – once again, thank you

    Hi Norene and Philip

    Take lots of care and will be thinking of you in coming weeks and months – the Menorca air is calling for a rest cure Norene – not too far away now!



  4. So sorry to hear about Norene – please pass on our good wishes for a speedy recovery.

    We all know just how tirelessly she beavers away, often in the background, taking care of all those little details that make the courses run so smootly and make every one who attends feel ‘cared for’ and supported.

  5. My thoughts are with you bothand I’m glad she is home safe.

    Take Care
