News Update and a Bonus Comic!
Hello TB fans - I'm finally back at home now and don't mind explaining a little of what's been going on since October.
The family member known as "the patient" is actually my mum; yes, the same mum who appears in the comic. She had to have a somewhat unexpected triple heart bypass and was in hospital for several weeks. The reason I was away from home was because I (and my cat, Buffy) had to stay with my sister who temporarily became my primary carer (not being able to live independently). For a couple of weeks after she was released from hospital, mum was staying with my sister too.
We are both now at home and mum is doing very well, although it will be a long while before she's fully recovered; especially as last winter she had a stroke which left her with a partial blind spot in one eye (if you stand in just the right spot she can't see you!).
The comic will remain on hiatus until January (as I originally said), just to give me time to work on it and get back into the swing of things - not to mention this time of year is usually busy anyway!
I did have time to do a quick bonus comic for you (following on from episode #420).
I might have something for you either Christmas Eve or Christmas Day too, so stay tuned and thanks again for your patience and kind wishes, even though you had no idea who was ill or what was happening!
Penny for 'em...
