Vetty Creations office partial closure: I have been unwell since mid November 2023. Orders are going out, though may be delayed when I'm having a really bad day/days. I respond to enquiries when I am able to. I apologise for this. It’s not what I want either.

UPDATE - OFFICE CLOSURE: In what is hopefully not the most ill-advised decision of the year, I am heading to NZ to teach at the ANZEG
conference. I’ll be out of the office from Saturday 13th July, returning Monday 22nd July. Hopefully I’ll be well enough to fill all the orders then.
