Message to Readers From Jane

    Thanks to everyone who was kind enough to contact me or Brian to enquire how I was doing after my illness. So relieved to say that I am about 90% “fit as a flea”! The other 10% is improving daily. Take care of yourself and the one(s) you love too. Best wishes. Jane (who now has Very short hair & loves it!) Jane x
