Firstly I want to apologise for not responding until now I have been few weeks out of hospital after a bad kidney infection and I have not checked my mail history until now. Secondly I want to apologise for letting you down I know it could not be avoided but it does not stop me feeling bad for you and the others I have let down in swaps. I know people are so sceptical of flakers and while I wish to redeem myself I don't have the time or energy to complete my unsent swaps at this time. I have been back at work this week and just as I think things are back on track I am having problems with my kidneys again already. Don't get me wrong I do not just want to walk away from swapbot leaving people let down but it will be a while before things are ok with my body and schedule, I had similar kidney problems last year after too much stress at work and I wish I could just quit for a while but I cannot even get unemployment funds here in Belgium because I am still waiting on the papers and my boyfriends wages alone are not enough. I am lucky that my employers were understanding and have kept me on and while it seems selfish to the people I have let down fulfilling the swaps (even the ones that are part completed from before my hospitalisation) is last on my priority list right now. Saying that I have one private swap that was a spend swap rather than a craft based swap and I will send that out as soon as possible and any other non craft based gifts/wta etc. I have pending.
I promise to rate you and to send all swaps, if you haven't received a rating or a package from me please don't hesitate to contact me.
