We Are Closed Due to Illness

The trouble with a long-term illness is that when it starts, it isn't long-term.
Since the middle of May I have been soldiering on with constant severe abdominal pain and overwhelming fatigue. Until today I have caused myself considerable amounts of stress by believing that tomorrow/next Monday I would be back to normal and able to deal effectively with all the work I need to do.
But I haven't recovered.  I have got worse. Though still undiagnosed, I am spending large amounts of time at the hospital having scans and tests and should soon be a position to know when (or if) I will get better.
In the meantime, I have to close the business at least for a while.
I know that I still have outstanding business with some of you. I am trying to contact you all so that I can return your computers or issue your invoices. Thank you for your patience, kindness and compassion. I am still here for the time being, and usually spend at least a couple of hours out of bed every day. If you urgently need your computer,  text to 07782108816 and I will arrange to return it by some means.
I'm hoping that someone from Caversham Gossip Girls will read this and pass this on to the group.  I have many loyal and lovely customers amongst the CGG and I want to make sure that they all know what is going on. But I am not a member.
Cross your fingers for me, and I will do the same for you.


  1. Be strong Helen. Take time out for yourself to rebuild and recover.

  2. A friend passed this blog page to me. My husband had a similar problem over 15 years ago, so much so that he thought it might be a stomach cancer. It turned out he was gluten intolerant. Within 2 weeks of going on gluten free diet, his pain cleared completely. He went totally GF for 2 years, and is now able to eat an occasional cake or biscuit (once a week or so).

    Maybe you've already tried various food elimination tests to see if you are intolerant to something, but just in case it helps...

  3. Best wishes, hope you turn the corner soon. xx

  4. Best wishes to you. You have helped me out twice with computer challenges. I hope your health issues are resolved before long.

  5. Hi, I live really near you, and have been hoping you're okay, though I've only ever seen the signs on the door, not met or seen you. Sending you good vibes and I am hopeful that you and your business (which honestly I think is really cool and valuable) recover in time. *sends useless good vibes and remains anonymous*

  6. Really sorry to hear this Helen - Do hope ur better soon

  7. So sorry to hear Helen. You are a god send especially as we learnt go pro together. Wishing you a speedy recovery. Kim and Derek Marlow.xx

  8. Very best wishes, Helen. Very sorry to hear that you've had such a hard year and hope that they can reach a diagnosis soon, so that you can get some treatment to help you. You won't remember us but you have helped Stewart and me with our computers on a few occasions.
