Hi Rhiannon

I don't think I was around to read these when they were published the first time. They are wonderful. Perhaps you could make them into a booklet and self-publish them. If you want my help in doing that, let me know.

Lovely images of orangey things. One of my favourite colours and without the cateracts, my entire world of colour has changed. I bought a coat which I thought was an orangey brown - and it turned out to be a pinky pumple. I...
