    Hi Sarah, apologies for not being supportive of you but I couldn't think of anything useful to say - too selfishly distracted.

    Can you tell I'm pleased?

    Hi Ellie,

    Don't rush the Wythenshawe One campaign - I need to stay here for a while to keep an eye on the two fire engines full of hunky firemen parked outside my window!
