A customer received this message today (14 Dec 2023:
Thank you for your mail. We apologize for the late response.
We have to put you off, as we are taking / will be taking a break for a few months due to family commitments (care) from Christmas onwards. Due to these events, we also have to make changes to our business changes. We plan to continue in the summer at the latest, if the economic/political circumstances permit.
I would therefore ask you to contact us in late spring.**
