Hi Vanessa. Thanks for the christmas card, it is lovely. Not been around for a while, as computer has been playing up, and I have been busy making presents, eg. scalves, mittens, knitted cakes (now don't laugh) and a pink teepee for my daughter. Could you email me with your address as we have had to restart our computer - my address is anita.cross@ntlworld.com. Thanks. Have a great christmas. anita
