I am very sorry to say that this year's issue will be delayed, I am aiming now for a 14th March 2022  issue.

I have had a series of setbacks and today have decided to be realistic and face up to reality, apologies to everyone who might be looking out for news, I hope you will still be willing to collect in March.

Sorry to hear about setbacks, Colin. Hope nothing serious.

Something to look forward to in March for us all though! Yay!

Nothing truly serious Joolz, but thank you for the kind thoughts.

I feel really guilty to be honest, I have been issuing Valentine's stamps since 2004 and it feels very weird not having one (yet!) this year.

Regretfully, I have to ask for more time to complete the 2022 Isle of Vue issue  :-(

It's due to a combination of several small things but also a couple of enormous ones, and all beyond my control.  

It WILL happen - it is at the printers right now - but there no way I can see it being ready to issue on Monday... please stay tuned!

And my apologies, again.

I don't think anyone thinks you need to apologise, Colin.

I think we're all just grateful to have the opportunity to obtain your miniature marvels whenever they become available.

I'm still working on it folks, I was aiming for the 23rd May* but now know that's not going to work...  Please bear with me  :-)

I don't suppose there will now be a great interest in this issue, coming so long after Valentine's Day, so hopefully it will be all the more collectable for that, over time   I'm certainly enjoying bringing it together   Wink


* A clue there for the subject matter...

Hi Colin, sorry to hear that you have had so much trouble. I hope that the problems that you have had have now eased. You might even consider delaying the issue until next Valentine's Day?
At the end of the day I hope all is well with you.
Best wishes,
Daniel

Just wanted to confirm that I am
1) definitely interested in your stamps
2) not bothered what the date is when you release them (as long as it's soon!!)
3) hoping that you are OK

Colin,
Also, how about moving the theme from being 'date specific' (Valentine's, Christmas etc) to something more general. In which case it wouldn't matter so much if it was issued late, it could still be Isle of Vue. Or make Valentine's Day 'a moveable feast' on the Isle of Vue.
Just thinking of ways to take the pressure off you.
All best wishes,
Daniel

Thank you everyone for the support, andthe kind thoughts and advice.

The 'problem' has been more of a combination of things out of my control - some very good, some not so good, and a couple of absolute stinkers - and something had to give.  I don't want to put down on a public forum exactly what, but I genuinely hope/expect that it will not happen again.   

It just goes to show that even when you reach a ripe old age and sometimes everything appears on the face of it to be getting rather repetitive and even predictable, it never pays to take anything for granted.

In the meantime I am bashing on with the Valentine's issue - definitely a moveable feast this year - it's almost there  :-)  

Thank you all again.

Sending you positivity, Colin. We've been manic over the past three months with property stuff which has felt much more out of our control than we would have liked but has in the end mostly come together as planned with a couple of pieces still to slot into place though. So very glad not to have missed your issue whilst my attention has been very distracted and looking forward to something exciting from you in the near future. You'll be sending it to a new address though which will be quite a change for us after 21 years!

Thanks for the positive vibes Julian, and congratulations on moving house - I am envious!

I'm working on the stamps again today, so a little bit nearer to completion... I will keep you posted.

Thanks again  :-)
