or accept my apologies.
ps Blinky - you are really good. Where did you learn English?

Thanks, ma'm, I wouldn't want to bore you with the story of my life:-)
P.S. Do not say "accept my apologies" in response to "My wife just died" - unless you were the one who offed her:-P

I would love to hear your life story to be honest:-)
on other note (since we having these debates :-D) when my dad passed away, some people in England (the posh ones, with Queen's English) used to say : accept my apologies or condolences. (but frankly speaking you rarely meet people like this)
