Thanks Drew. It is great to be chosen, that must be a first for me! This one came together in the run up to Easter as I considered what this time of replenishment really means, or should mean. If it can help to encourage us to work together for a...

As I was reading I was expecting the worst as your threatening disaster occurred! I am glad you survived it, and that you actually managed to get your flu jabs! I thought you would get cancelled at the last minute. That was an exciting read, a...
