Hi Mark, Just a little message to say thank you for yesterday. The weather was good, the company was good and the event was an inspiration. I came away after a very bad week as if I had just taken a pick me up. I got home saw Alfie and had a nice pot of tea in a china cup and the world felt more normal than it had for a while. So once again thank you.
