Oboe/My vacation Dates


Hi oboe  enthusiasts. I am sorry that I have had my vacation dates incorrectly set so that you will think I am having a very long break. I wondered why things had been so quiet. I had my months and days reversed so that I was apparently unavailable. But not so,5d here I am ready again to try and help with your queries.
Best wishes and a Happy New Year to you all!

I apologise to any of you who have been attempting to have questions answered.
When I set my New Year holiday dates in December last  I had reversed the month and day - I'm British you see we have day before month - so I was apparently on holiday until the first of September instead of ninth of January. I wondered why there were no questions. I checked earlier today and there it was - my error entirely.
So all I can do us apologize and say I'm ready for action again.
Best wishes
