Letters are so special -

There's something about letters.

I hope the internet and mobile phones and texting don't kill them off.

I got a letter today, from a lady I hope to meet some day. 'How does one write to a long-lost step-daughter?' she asked.

She has such great handwriting. Strong, open, even. I had a music teacher with similar handwriting, in North Wales.

How lovely...

(and I don't propose putting much more of this on here. It's MINE! But thank you to everyone for your messages.)

Hi Susie

I took my courage in both hands and rang her yesterday evening, to say thank you for passing on the letter to you and P.

We had a good conversation - I discovered that she knew nothing about me at all, so my letter must have come as a bit of a shock. I amjust eternally grateful that she didnt tear it up!

I wish you and your husband a wonderful holiday, and belated congrats for your 25th.
