It's been ages since I've looked in on my Prospero, but when I read your words, tis as if I've never been away - which in truth I've not, just busy with others more pressing at the moment than your good self - sadly. Engrossing, skillful, honest, good humoured. What can I say? Again you tell us what we already know and say it a million times better than we ever could and so we all nod our heads and sigh, like pooh bear. And feel all warm and runny inside. Yes, that's the way it is. That's the way it is. I'll have to print this one. love, Allie xxxx
