Breaking my current
silence laziness, I have a couple of misc items for you today. I received a letter today that is essentially addressed to *you*.
LOROS Fundraising Director Caroline Baker has kindly written to us to thank us for your donation raised as part of the #HoHoHolidayFundraiser. She took the time to hand-write her message, making it individual and extra-special. Just the kind of personal touch that (I assume) characterises the organisation in general. This is what she wrote:
Thank you so much for your continued amazing fundraising efforts for LOROS in memory of Margaret Armitage. Your recent donation of £3821.04 is incredible – we are all so grateful.
With best wishes,
Disregard my name in the address, the thanks go all to you for your generous support of the fundraiser – your donations, your purchases, your bids and your efforts in sharing and advertising the initiative. With LOROS having to raise £6,000,000 each year, our contribution does make a big difference.

Speaking of LOROS, donations and fundraisers – I had a wonderful visitor yesterday.
Well, I wish… 😂. No, not quite Guy. But the owner of The Jacket™️ paid me a visit 🥳. It was so nice to meet her, we had a lovely chinwag over an impromptu cup of tea, and the plan is to meet again tomorrow. On her way over to Dublin she actually stopped by a venue we recently saw somewhere else… She took a picture and suggested I show you…

Lastly, another thank you to you all for your kind comments on my recent health update. I was talking to a Buddhist friend yesterday who was explaining about the significance of what they call Metta, a form of regularly practiced meditation, the purpose of which is to generate benevolence towards themselves or others. In other words – positive energy. I consider all forms of prayer as well as any kind of positive thought and compassion directed at me or Mr Guylty as such and believe in its power. So thank you for your kind thoughts. It helps because it reassures and strengthens me!
