You will all have noticed that I am not great at replying to comments.
I promise you all that I do read every one of them, and they are all very important to me, but I can never think of anything to say to reply. All of you lovely people say very complimentary things, and there are only so many ways in which I can say “thank you.”
And during the week, when I wrote the short, dejected post and the brief apology for it the next day I was touched as always by how much you all care, and how much you sympathise and offer advice and kinship.
It really means a lot to me, and you’ll all never know how much it helps.
You are my friends. Thank you all.
