…a beautifully crocheted doiley made by Karen’s Mum – it’s around 12” across and the workmanship [workwomanship?] in it is utterly astounding, and finally a few squares of Thornton's chocs in various flavours.

Thank you Karen – you are so very generous. We will enjoy the sweets – and pass on the cards to friends on their special days.

Thank you Karen, and Jessica for your generosity.
