Welcome to the July Newsletter.
Yes, you are getting an early one this month, because life is determined to keep draging my butt away from my computer chair!!!!

On a personal note ....

Spoiler:
I hoped after my Sister's Interment of ashes, that life would settle back down to normal for me.
But no!!!
The Operation date has FINALLY come through, that I have been waiting for since October last year!!
For those of you who don't already know, I have a benign tumor growing in one of my saliva glands,
so they gave me just four days notice and will be doing the operation on the 15th JULY ...
GULP ... yeah tommorrow!!
BLAH!!!!
After typing out all this and about to release this news letter out onto the forum ... I get a phone call.
They have cancelled the 15th and moved the op to the 24th :shrug:
After two pre-ops and 8 months of waiting I am getting seriously annoyed!!

So I am going to be AWOL for a while again ... but I'm not sure when exactly and how long for this time.
Hopefully the 24th wont be cancelled and moved again!!

It is not a pleasant operation!! Not only will I have to live with a visible scar on my face,
I have been warned, that there are a lot of nerves in that area of my face, so there will be temporary nerve paralysis, which hopefully will repair itself over time.
So for a while I will look like I have had a stroke and it will affect the whole left side of my face. To what extent I am not sure until I wake up after the operation.
I might not be able to open/close my eye, my mouth will be drooped, affecting eating, and it can go as far as affecting my vision and speech.
But there is nothing there that will keep me off my computer as soon as they release me from the hospital, I should have one eye working at least. :lol:
so I am expecting to be back pretty quickly, even if I am doped up on pain medication.
Hopefully my absence won't disturb the running of TGBO and Houses,
All of the 1st of the month threads are being made ready to go, and with Livvie and Blams there to look after them, hopefully you won't notice my absence.

wait ... life hasn't finished throwing curve balls at me yet!!!
So my internet provider (Virgin) has decided there is something wrong with the cables in our street :shrug:
so on Tuesday the 16th July my internet is going down :fisty: I don't know how long for - anything up to a week they recon, which is downright ridiculous in this day and age!!!
I'm going to feel so lost with my computer not having internet for however long they take to repair thier shit!!
I will still have mobile data, so I can still get onto the forum via my phone to do things,
but there are things that I wont be able to do without my pc having internet access - anything requiring graphics being one of them!! :roll:

So yeah, I need to apologize again, because I still have fete stuff to finish off ...
Gnome Tombola - Hook a duck - The ticket Lottery needs to be sorted out and unused tickets need to be exchanged for stars. :roll:
These will be my first jobs to do when I get back my "normal" life and internet!!!


That said, we move onto brighter things!!

Our New Summer Fete event, I think and hope went down well, even if I couldn't keep up and kept you waiting for things :roll:
Hopefully we can make our Summer Fete even better!!

I would like to thank both Nevermore and Snazzle, who both helped to make gnomes for The Gnome Tombola!!! :hug:

:heart: :heart: :heart:
I have to say, I am very proud of Boolprop and it's members right now, after the Pride event!!!
It actually moved me, to see that so many of you felt comfortable enough to come out and wave your pride flags!!
Proving the awesome place that Boolprop is!!
Through our love of sims we have come together and created a "family" here, where race, religion, origin and sexuality doesn't matter,
we except each other for who we are and treat each other with the respect that we deserve!!
So you ALL should be proud of yourselves, because I am!! :party2:
:heart: :heart: :heart:


So now it is SimNano Month.
For those of you who are taking part, I hope that you are enjoying your writing,
and are on the way to achieving the goals that you set yourselves!!
