Hi there, just wanted to pop in and express my gratitude for the dozens of cards I have received from you all. I'm finding it a challenge to find time to message everyone individually and I feel sad about that, but I thought I should make a mention here at the very least. Gosh today I got cards from both Russia and Brazil -- how many people in the WORLD can make that claim?? Very grateful, thanks gang.

I'm really sorry for the lateness of this acknowledgement post .. Between floods and earthquakes it's been a really rough last few weeks, but I'm now back at home, and have non-dropping-out internet again *woohoo*

OMG(oodness) that Chocolate was exactly what I needed at the time, and shh don't tell anyone but I secretly gobbled the lot without sharing

And the third was signed Calum, Catriona, and Molly .. I'm sorry I don't know your username and the envelope was completely soaked/torn/destroyed by the time I got it so no clues if it was written on that ..


Please know that each and every card put a smile on my face, and I truly appreciate all your well wishes and thoughts .. I too hope that everyone had a happy & safe Christmas, and wish you all a fabulous 2012!
