it appears that for at least the last couple of days, i have been unable to receive email on my server. of course this had to happen while on holidays (doesn't it always work that way?!) so i was unaware of the issue. on top of that, my autoresponders are still going out, so although i actually haven't received anything, it appears to the sender that i have!
if you have emailed me in the last couple of days (or longer) and think i may not have received it, PLEASE email the message to andrea.hanki[at]hotmail.com.
so sorry for the inconvenience — looking forward to chatting with you soon. xox, andrea.
